So, since I had the morning off, I decided to do a little arts and crafts (when I should be going to the grocery store or cleaning the house).
First I deconstructed a standard envelope. Easy enough. If you’re concerned about wasting an envelope you can always tape or glue it back together. I used the envelope as a template for my magazine page, torn out of Martha Stewart Living for testing purposes only.
Since it would be hard to read any addresses on that, I just taped some leftover white bits of the magazine page where I wanted to label:
I’m not sure I’d take my chances putting this in the mail, but it doesn’t seem any flimsier than the envelope I used as my template. You could always use the magzine cover to make things sturdier. I may send this as a test drive to the Modern Mom to see if the Postal Service complains.
The whole thing took me about 30 seconds. Enjoy!
