I made an envelope!

Handmade envelope

I have this fun 2008 Warren Kimble cats calendar that my MIL gave me, and until a few days ago it was still hanging on the wall because it was so cute I couldn't bear to throw it away. I was looking at this page and realized it would make a really fun envelope, so I gave it a shot.

Handmade envelope

No fancy folds or anything for me - the sides are just taped closed. But it preserves the artwork, I think. Maybe I'll photograph it again once it's actually stamped and addressed and ready to go. Right now I can't figure out whether I should send it to my MIL (who gave the calendar), or send it to one of my cat-loving correspondents.


  1. Wow! Cute idea!!!

  2. I love your blog! I am a letter writer as well and it's nice to see there are still others out there that prefer "snail mail."

  3. Thank you, Laura! I'm glad you came by, and it's great to hear of another dedicated letter writer.
