Simple 01: Trace, Cut, Fold, Paste
A couple of years ago my mother gave me a beautiful calendar. The pictures were all blue and white - my favourite colour combination.
Last Sunday afternoon rain pelted against the windows and I was restless to make something but didn't want to head down to my sewing room/studio. So I grabbed the calendar (I hate throwing pretty pictures away), an envelope, glue and scissors. I spent a fun hour making envelopes from the old calendar.
To make envelopes, carefully take apart an envelope of the size you want, trace it onto the wrong side of the calendar pages (checking to see which way you want up), cut, fold and paste. Add a mailing label for writing the address.
By the end of the hour I had 12 pretty envelopes and put in some thinking time as well.
