LESSology Challenge #57

I was really intrigued by the new challenge over at LESSology they are calling it Snail Mail Revolution...I have been limiting my crafting to only things I know I will use or giveaway (yeah we know that won't last long) I do make a whole lot of cards but they are easy to store and I tend to send so many out each month that there aren't really that many to store! So anyway I wanted to make something I could actually send and or use on another project....but as always I got carried away just a lil bit...

I had a hard time coming up with an upcycled item besides a used envelope...so I went in a different direction...I decided to create my own envelopes out of used paper bags (my upcycled item) I figured they would be sturdy enough for gesso,paints and inks...
here is the first one I made....I got the measurements a little off but it still hold a standard card...woohoo


this is the second one (it came out perfect!)...I loved the color and the texture that was already on it so I decided to just decorate it to be used on a project....
and the last one I made just note size to used on a card or a layout....its not decorated as the rest....I just used washi tape on it....

like I said I got a bit carried away LOL but at least now I know I can make an envelope that I use if need be!

thanks for coming to take a peek!
