Making Envelopes

A while back I purchased these lovely wooden envelope templates. I used them occasionally, but it wasn't until recently that I found the perfect material for them... old calendars! I had kept a few cute ones because I just couldn't throw them out. When I found them again I instantly knew what to do and started making envelopes.


I made these small ones from an asian art calendar (which happen to be perfect for wrapping my kokeshi bookmarks):


And larger ones from a beautiful fairy calendar I had.


Can't wait to send some of these off! And hopefully I'll also find some more calendars in the house so I can make some more envelopes. It is addicting!

  1. Great idea! I've never seen those wooden envelope templates before, are they new or vintage?
    Hope you had a nice weekend and have a lovely week! :) xx

  11. I love making my own envelopes, too! :) I don't have a template, though, so mine don't look as neat as yours.

    Have a great week, girl! ;D
