In my bottom dresser drawer, I have a two stacks of catalogues. One contains J. Crew catalogues dating back to 2007; the other, Anthropologie catalogues from 2009-ish to present. This simple DIY gives me a good excuse to hold onto them. (Even if I do still have a hard time cutting them up.)
You can really use any pretty paper to make envelopes, but Anthropologie always has the most beautiful photos, so if you’re not already on their mailing list, you should be! If only to make things with the pages :) Let’s face it though… you’re bound to find at least 5 new things to add to your wish list! Oh well.
Printed envelope template (remember to print at 100%)
One piece of sturdy card stock
One page from a magazine or catalogue
(Earbuds are great for piping in a podcast whilst you work.)
P.S. My favorite way to seal the envelope’s top flap is with a small white rectangular label with my address typewritten on it. I also make another label with my friend’s address and stick it on the front.
