Envelopes from Catalogs

JetPens is known for their pens, but did you know that they sell craft supplies, too? JetPens offered to send me a package of their favorite products.  I don’t usually accept promotional items, but like Gollum and the Ring, I could not say no Japanese stationery. They sent me a package that made me swoon, and rather than show the goodies all at once, I thought that it would be best to show them as I use them.

Kuretake Handmade Mini Envelope Template. In the past, I made custom envelopes by unfolding one that I already had and tracing over it. Now, I can use this mini envelope template to create 4 different sized envelopes:

  • 3 x 5 cm
  • 4 x 6.5 cm
  • 5 x 8.25 cm
  • 6 x 10 cm

In these pictures, you see the largest size. The paper I used for the envelopes are pages from the most recent JCrew catalog, which explains all the pretty colors.
