Pinterest Inspired Fancy Envelopes

I pinned this project, knowing I had lots of scrap paper and maps and sheet music which would be perfect for these cute envelopes.

My loyal assistant helped of course…can’t do much without Frosty close!

The original post is here at The Creative Place.  I used her template and enlarged it so I had several sizes, I glued the paper template to an old atlas cover so it is easy to trace around.  And then I even got more creative and added some embellishments to the envelopes.

The petals/leaves were left over from this project, so I have quite a few of them!

I am linking to these great parties!

I love the papers that you used and so smart to adhere the template to the atlas cover for stability. Thanks for sharing at our party this week.

Love any idea that will use up some of my gigantic paper stash. I already make a ton of cards. Should have thought of making matching envelopes! Great idea - thanks for sharing. Came over from Gunny Sack.
