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!
