DIY Printed Envelopes

British writer, Tom Hodgkinson, said, "Alongside my 'no email' policy, I resolve to make better use of the wonderful Royal Mail, and send letters and postcards to people. There is a huge pleasure in writing a letter, putting it in an envelope and sticking the stamp on it. And huge pleasure in receiving real letters, too."

Our Postmark Team has been feeling that pleasure of writing a letter or card, putting it in an envelope and sticking the stamp on it. We are getting reports back of the pleasure people are feeling when they get one of our cards. It's a ministry, but we have fun doing it.

Some of us on the team love to play with paper. Combining paper love with ministry love makes our hearts smile. This week I'll be showing some fun ways to make envelopes -- five of them, one concept a day. There are many envelopes out on the world wide web -- free for the printing.  I chose four of them (links below) and printed them out. 

Just cut on along the edge -- easy peasy. 

Fold on the lines and, using a tape runner, glue them together. 

It's that simple. Creative people get bored easily.  Faced with a whole box of 20 notes with plain white envelopes, we want something different. And here it is -- something different.

  1. Now that is creative; I don't know what a tape runner is though.
