I don’t know about you but I hate throwing away my old calendars. The pictures are so beautiful. A few years ago I started turning them into envelopes. I love sending them to our Nephews who get a kick out of seeing a bright cheery envelope in the mail box.
Here is how I turn my calendars into envelopes.
Step 1 – Pick the picture you want to use
Step 2 -Decide what portion of the picture you want to highlight and fold one corner over to form a triangle. Trim off the excess paper
Step 3 – Fold the corners into each other to form a square
Step 5 – Attach label to the front of the envelope to write an address on.
I also tape down the edges and folds so the envelope stays together.
I love making these each year. They are fun to mail out and re-use calendars instead of throwing them out. I have also made them with newspaper articles and magazine pages.
