Cute Little Envelopes to make yourself

I love looking through You Tube to see the flip throughs crafters post of their junk journals. It is a great way to get inspired and also get ideas!  I love little things...so these little envelopes I see often, have been something I have been wanting to make. I finally found an little envelope and carefully, tore it apart and used it as a pattern. Last night.. I made all these little guys in about 15 minutes! I used vellum for two for that crackle sound that makes it fun to open it! I can't wait to use them!
Size is about 2inches by 3 inches. And what a great way to use up scrap paper... and I think I am going to use that green ledger paper and make one with that and see how it looks - just to be different!


You could do this with any envelope you find that is unusual and you like for whatever reason. Even a library book pocket..(remember those... on the inside cover of each book with the "return" card in the pocket!!!) Just open one up and use it as a pattern. See a neat envey in your junk mail but don't like all the printing on it? Tear it open and use it as a pattern!  Always be on the look out for things to use in a different way in your junk journals!

Thanks for stopping by and...keep on sewing those memories!
