I am a huge fan of making new crafts out of things I would otherwise recycle or throw away. Check out these pretty DIY envelopes I made from an old catalog! You can use recycled magazine pages, scrapbooking paper, or just about any other pretty paper to make your own envelopes, too! Find my instructions for making these envelopes at Live.Craft.Love: [DIY Envelopes from Recycled Magazines]
For my tutorial, I used the Martha Stewart Scoring Board and Envelope Template (which is a SUPER handy tool), but you don’t have to have any special tools to make your own envelopes. Instead, just open up an envelope you already have, trace it onto a piece of scrap paper, then cut it out, fold it, and glue it closed. Simple!
