The old envelopes

Dear friends, I bought at the auction a pack of old envelopes, with a picture, size 114x161 millimeters (4.5 x 6.3 inches), and I don't know how to use them in Mail Art. Maybe someone wants to receive such an envelope as a gift. In the future, you can make your collage on the reverse side of the envelope, or use it in some other way.

    Hello Ilya,

    I would enjoy receiving an envelope such as these. I have been lookin for a few smaller ones to send your way. They will possibly be from the 1940s and 1950s, if I can put my fingers on some that are half way decent. I have many in boxes yet to be unpacked since I finally settled here in 2018!

    PEACE

        I have several of these kind of envelopes, called First Day Covers, here in the U.S. I've used them for mailing by adding new postage on them and they seem to get delivered okay. In fact, one year, I did a daily mailing in January using them. 

        But the reverse side can be used also. I like the idea of adding collage material.
