Decorative Envelopes 

Tutorial by Maria Smeshkova

“Hello everyone! Today I want to show you how to decorate envelopes using bits and bobs from other projects. 

   I’ve taken three envelopes from the A2 Cards 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″ with Envelopes Ivory set and decorated them. For the first envelope, I used small square or rectangular paper scraps that I cut out into hexagons. Long scrapbook paper strips came in handy for the second envelope and I decorated the third envelope using paper leftovers of various shapes. Then I’ve added a photograph on each background. 

   I like to use these envelopes as pockets for junk journals and travel books.


Tip: You can decorate photo frames using the smallest scrapbook paper scraps. This way all the leftovers will go into the project.
