A letter-writing blog extolling the virtues of snail mail:
old-fashioned postal paper mail and all of its varied accessories.
Wow! I don't know what you mean by "has a classy template." Perhaps you could explain, some time. I just use _your_ tape up the sides way, myself. :-)Hope you'll tell her, that I am impressed with her envelope. Or maybe, if she reads here, she'll read this... And who knows? Maybe we'll end up writing to each other too? :-) Now wouldn't that be a cool way, to find a new person to correspond with?'Aunt Amelia'
By template, I mean a guide for cutting the paper to make the envelope, so that the edges are tapered in a bit. See how in the bottom photo the bottom flap doesn't quite meet the sides, and is rounded at the corner? A template is the guide that helps to cut the paper in that way. Me, I'm not that inherently crafty, I don't have a lot of equipment, and I don't like stuff on my hands (like glue) -- so I go with the tape. Glad you don't mind. :)
nice! definitely feeling inspired...
I have a copy of the envelope mill which came with three templates (very durable). I love them and use them all the time. Highly recommend it.
I make my own envelopes all the time. I just started using vellum tape instead of double stick tape to seal them. You can see a few of them at http://www.studiomme.etsy.com
Lovely envelopes, MME! I must look into this vellum tape business.
