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!

The COOLEST thing ever!!! The art was a mini movie poster I picked up at an anime store in Tokyo. I can’t believe you created this, it’s just so perfect a match to the Japanese illustrations. Dang, I can’t post this for a few days, but it will be on my blog ASAP! Amazing, Cece!
