Sometimes you have to wonder about progress and extinction. Now I’m not saying that envelopes will go extinct, but the art of letter writing has surely diminished. But the colors and sizes of envelopes for invitations has continued to evolve, and envelopes make clever little pockets.
The September project in the Twelve Months of Paper calendar features this Envelope Photo Album. Cut windows through the envelopes, tuck photos inside, and bind the envelopes together with bamboo skewers.
The possibilities are endless: vary the colors and sizes; try using see-through glassine envelopes; use the flaps to stick one envelope to the next, and more! I created this pinterest board, which is full of other ideas.
What about you? Have you used envelopes in other creative ways?
