It's time for another project that recycles a SHOPPING BAG.
This one is a folder made of two envelopes in which my son and daughter will keep their correspondence while at Camp.
1. The 2 envelopes can be traced with a template if you can't have access to a die-cutting machine at your local store ( I made mine at Archiver's )
Make sure you score a hole in each envelope for the ribbon and add any embellishments on the cover BEFORE gluing the envelopes:
The dimension are: 4 1/2 x 6 1/3 inches.I cut blank pieces of cardstock ( 4 x 5 1/2 )to act as postcards.
2.Glue the lip of each envelope so as to make a folder:
The idea behind the "blank postcards" is that my son can illustrate them as he wishes or/and if he writes home regularly I'll make him a mini book using his words and pictures.( Hope he gets the message here!)
3.I added a "potty" man and wrote my son's name and address on the back of it.I traced it using the MAYA ROAD one as a template and used the piece of heavy cardstock that is usually at the bottom of the shopping bag.
Hope you find this project as fun as I did,I'm planning on making another one for a GRADUATION and I'm thinking it would work great for an invitation as well.
Let me know what you think, I look forward to your feedback!
