DIY Printed Envelopes
Postmarking Vellum Envelopes
If tearing up books is a crime to you, don't read any further. But to send a book leaf envelope to a book lover makes me smile. I couldn't cut up one of my favorite books, or one I read to my children, but I ran into a Goodwill and picked up a couple for 69 cents.
Evidently musicians don't like you tearing up their hymnals either, so I'm in the market for some old sheet music. For now I just printed one off, but in my mind I envision a musician finding a yellowing piece of music in their mailbox.
Here are some fun places to find wannabe envelopes:
Children's coloring books
Old sheet music
I found a couple envelope templates on Pinterest (I'll link below) and printed them. You'll want to move the template around on the page a bit to get what part you want to see in the right place. Then just cut out and fold like we did in the DIY Printed Envelopes. Add glue and you're almost ready to use.
I'll be happy to give this to either one of my daughters...
I'm sure I'd get it back.
The last step is to affix an address label. And guess what! It doesn't need to be in the middle like we were taught in school. (Gasp!) The post office will take them as long as the address is on the front. So take care to not obscure the picture.
Now you're ready to fill your envelopes full of encouragement!
