Recycled Junk Mail Envelopes

August 30th, 2013

Pile of Junk

It seems no matter how many times I try and simplify the online bill process there are still a handful of bills that come every week in snail mail. Since we pay the bills online the return envelopes usually end up in the trash. Rather than keep wasting paper, I decided to recycle these envelopes in my own chic way…

New and Improved

A little inside out fold and a little washi tape (yes, washi again… I know I use it a lot but it’s so darn easy to work with!) and you’ve got a new envelope. Since all these bill envelopes have an interior print to keep people from seeing your check I end up with a ton of cool options!

Remember, don’t tape the envelope closed until it’s time to use and there’s actually something inside it 😉
