I love paper and I love office supplies. There, I admitted it, so when I found a fun piece of paper in my envelope of doom I figured what better than to turn it into paper office supplies. If you’ve followed my blog for a while you already know I love both lining envelopes and making my own envelopes, and some of my favorite tools are the templates you can purchase from Paper-Source. I’ve more than gotten my money’s worth out of the ones I own, so when I was in the store a few weeks back taking a little class and saw the new baby sized envelope template I had to try it out.
This is the template kit I choose, the other option had pink paper selection but looking around here should explain how much I love blue and green so naturally I selected the “pool” color selection.
And this is the paper I found folded up in my envelope of doom!
Using their envelope templates is super-simple.
- Trace around the template on the reverse side of the paper.
- Cut out along the lines
- Score where the inner opening of the template are (I use a scoring board from Martha & love it)
- Glue the edges
- Put those babies to use, these just happen to be the perfect size for a business card!
So basically I used contents from my “Envelope of Doom” to create “Baby Envelopes of Doom” In keeping with the rules of the game, the items were to be gifted to someone else…and these just so happened to be included in a swap package I was sending out! I love it when things work out like that!
