I typically think of an envelope being made of paper, but what about other materials that could be used to create an envelope? Have you ever made or received an envelope made from something other than paper? If you have lets see them. The one I show here I made for a friend a few years back and it's metal, very thin gauge, I embossed and then distressed with alcohol inks.
Hubba, hubba! Neato, 'TB'!
I've sent a few 2-liter pop bottles decorated and addressed and 'plumped' by cooling in the freezer before sealing.
Y'r [new] ol' Bud, Fike
LOL.... Ficus you made me blush!
If you have any photos of those 2-liter bottle envelopes you have to share! Very creative....
Wow....You do some beautiful work with needle and thread! I didn't see any of the envelopes but I can imagine what they looked like. I thought there might be some folks working with fabric for an envelope.
I'm tempted on your invite to exchange.
I knit some envelopes, although the addresses I started to see too large, so an extra envelope was needed.
See these photos.
Hey Heleen - that's pretty neat. Thank you for sharing!
I don't have them anymore but I have received one made of Tyvek and then another of melted plastic shopping bags that was painted. It created some interesting textures but wasn't water tight.
