send it greenly

Send your holiday cards & things the green way! Upcycle your magazine pages into envelopes {here’s a batch i whipped up yesterday}.

Just find some visually cool pages and cut out the envelope using the oliveloaf design handy template!

Note:  The magazine page may be smaller than the template…that’s okay just make the side tabs smaller. Glue it and stick the bottom piece to the side tabs & viola! Easy~squeezy. You created a tres clever and upcycled envelope!

Keep in mind that thicker pages work best for mailing purpose and I’ve noticed that Elmer’s glue doesn’t adhere glossy pages in this case ~ use double stick tape. Enjoy!
