Calendar Envelopes and Notecards
My friend Mrs. T. from Across My Kitchen Table recently shared some envelopes she made from an old calendar, and it reminded me that I had a calendar from last year that I could put to good use.
If you don't have an old calendar many of the bookstores have 2008 calendars drastically marked down right now.
Simply take an envelope apart to use as a pattern.
Trace the envelope pattern on the calendar page and cut out.
Fold the top, bottom and sides. I used a ruler to make the folds straight and tight.
Glue the sides. I placed the envelopes under a heavy book until dry.
I made medium and small sized envelopes.
For address labels I cut small pieces of matching cardstock. Glue in place.
I was left with lots of scraps and decided to make some matching notecards.
I used different colors of cardstock to make the cards. Cut a length of paper slightly less wide than your envelopes, and fold over into a card.
I kept the cards very simple. I cut out rectangles from the scraps and glued them onto the fronts of the notecards.
You can also use several layers of paper.
Now you will be all ready to send a friend a pretty card to brighten up their winter! Thank you for looking!
