Handmade Envelopes

Instead of throwing away old magazines why not make your own envelopes? Here are some recent outgoing letters that I stuffed into envelopes made from folded Korean magazine paper. I had finished reading (or at least attempted to read) a free magazine and I love the look of Hangul so I thought I’d recycleย by turning all that waste intoย fun envelopes.

Once you decorate them with stickers and stamps they really come together.

I was inspired by this handmade newspaper envelope that I received from a friend out in BC.
The design possibilities are endless and each envelope is different. They are all so unique because of the fact that no two pages in a magazine are the same ๐Ÿ™‚

I think it makes letters extra special when you decide to send an envelope with some colour or print instead ofย a plain white one. In any case, these were fun to make and now I have a huge stack of them. Have a great weekend everyone ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Thank you for sharing this folding template! Your magazine envelopes are gorgeous and inspiring. I usually try to cut my own envelopes, but folding them is probably a lot easier ๐Ÿ˜€
