This past week I received this lovely surprise in my mailbox at college:
A birthday card from my good friend Brittany! (loyal reader of my blog by the way...shout out to ya girl!!)
What really caught my eye was the beautiful envelope it was in. So I texted her and found out she made it from a magazine. Such a smart idea!
I had to try it out myself. The only magazines I had lying around were bridal magazines....but I was able to find this pretty picture:
I traced out a basic envelope shape by hand on the back
Trimmed away all the excess
And then I folded all the parts down and used a little Mod Podge to keep it together.
And that't all there is to it!
Sorry for the crappy pictures, but the concept is pretty simple! So next time you are in a bind to make a pretty card for someone, try grabbing a magazine and see what you could make!
I'll be sharing this with all the link parties in my header including Today's Creative Blog, Serenity Now, and Christina's Adventures
