Upcycling Wrapping Paper for Envelopes

I love me some pretty packages.

And brown paper packages tied up with string are cool and all, but I recently received birthday presents in such pretty paper that I just had to repurpose that wrapping paper into envelopes.


I used both my large and small templates (which you can find here) to create envelopes out of this pretty paper. I avoided holes and tape marks, and I got several nice envelopes out of them.

Being green can actually be pretty and fun!

  1. This is such a nifty idea. When we ran out of envelopes at the holiday for our card for each other, I had the construction paper. Not quite so pretty but worked in a pinch. i like the idea of using magazines as well as the wrap paper idea. I am glad I found your site thru the Reader here, I have a birthday card to whip up next week> yay for recycling!
