In my cleaning up and finishing up that I am slowly trying to do I came across these little pieces that I began long ago.
Since I decided to finish them, I thought I would take pictures and show you the process along the way.
I had found old posters in the recycle bin at work.
The paper was a beautiful quality, and I decided it really should be reused and not recycled.
I tore it into four pieces of the same size, and decorated the blank side with bits and pieces of stamps and ink.
I tore a long piece of paper that I folded in half, and then folded to create an envelope with.
I decorated the outside portion with stamps, leaving blank space of where the address would go.
Here is the back of the envelope when it is folded.
It still needs to be sewn together.
Once I completed the stamping, I took a fine black permanent marker, and doodled loosely onto the designs.
I took the pieces to my sewing machine, and sewed the pages and the envelopes together.
I then had two pages that were decorated on both sides and an envelope.
I put the two pages together and sewed them down the middle.
In the end I had a little decorated booklet with a decorated envelope.
Perfect for writing a letter on and sending to a friend.
