Envelope craftiness

Thursday, 24 February 2011

My poor trusty computer has been in hospital this week. The hot weather just got too much for it I think and it has drifted into a little coma. Hopefully it'll be back tomorrow and ready to help me with my (rapidly building pile of) work again!


In the meantime it meant some hours to play with just paper and scalpel... JOY! So I got busy making envelopes. Who knew such a thing could be such fun?! I used magazine pages and old posters to create them along with this great template I bought from Upon a Fold awhile back. (as always - please excuse my poor quality of photography - must work on that!)


It's kind of an unplanned adventure seeing what will appear on the front and what will appear inside. I especially liked that inside the phone envelope is a sleeping lady! 


(I'm very sorry but I can't credit all these collected images. Most are from Frankie magazine due to the great paper stock and the lovely illustrators they showcase)


  1. They're beautiful. Love that girl in the tree one! p.s. thanks for the link.

  2. thanks justine... the templates were brilliant! (and it helps to have such amazing illustrations to make them with)

  3. Stunning unplanned adventure - wooopeee!


Thankyou for your comments. emily x
