I have so many saved envelopes of mail I’ve received and have been wondering the best way to utilize them. Many of them have a fun and creative design while some are more basic and functional rather than creative. That’s OK. They will all have a new purpose somehow, some way.
Sometimes I cut out the stamps and/or the stamps and the postmark. I save some in my stamp and postmark album.
Other times, I cut out the entire front of the envelope and use it in a junk journal, or on an Artist Trading Card (ATC), or some other paper craft that will be enhanced with the image and writing.
I have so many return address labels that it’s easy to cover the sender’s info with my own.
This post is part of a series of posts of the Envelope Project. Use #LJEnv (L&J envelopes) to find posts on social media. I will share the more creative, fun, and whimsical envelopes I’ve saved over the years and also share ways I’ve found to re-purpose them. For envelopes containing letters from family, friends, and pen pals, I save those in my letter box sorted by sender.
What do you do with your envelopes?
