recycled paper notelets

March 31, 2011

More with the recycled envelopes and paper.  But, you know, Easter and Mother’s Day are coming up.  And it’s always a good idea to keep thank-you notes on hand, right?  So I’ll need them.  Plus, I just obsess over junk mail, examining each item to determine what parts might be reused.

These colorful notelets are made with used envelopes layered together for sturdiness.

And a little paper flower made from the colorful pages of a catalog.  3 wavy circles of different sizes.

I sew the button onto the paper because I like the look of the colorful thread criss crossing through the button holes.

Please, let me know that I’m not the only person that secretly loves junk mail. 🙂

Thank you very much for reading & GO green!

    How fabulous is that??? You are so creative, Diane! I think you should have your own TV Craft Show!

    And thank you for reminding me to GO green because I’m not very good at that.

    *hangs head in shame*

    Hope you had a super Thursday!

    X to you and C!
