More envelopes made from children's books

Minikin envelope

I made these envelopes for the Letter in a Handmade Envelope #2 swap on Swap-bot.

Awwww!!! Isn't this cute? These pages all came from Minikin by Stephen Cosgrove and Robin James.

I loved the Serendipity Books when I was a kid, so I looked specifically for these when questing for books to use for handmade envelopes. The pages are a bit small, so one just has to tape the edges, but I think they're worth it.

Here's the second one, with more postage because it headed off to Canada.

I will also say that the pages of these books are nice and thick, so I didn't worry about these envelopes being too flimsy to make it through postal sorting machines.
