Junk mail card....


I honestly wish I could think of stuff like this on my own! This was to cute of an idea not to follow up on. I saw this in a blog a while back ago and wanted to make one of my own. So here is my version and I think you should go check hers out too. I think hers turned out so darn cute!



First of all...save that junk mail with the windows! Who would of thought?



Cut out the window leaving an edge around it so that you can glue it together....



I then cut out some cute trees since mine is going to be used for a Christmas card tag...put in there what you want.



Fold it in half...


See how I placed my little trees inside of it...





Got some paper for my card and took the measurements for the cut...you will have to figure this one out on your own because I didn't keep the measurements here...sorry.


Glued the edges of the paper so that the trees don't fall out...


I then Glued both sides together....and there you go.... my little recycled Card! Is this just darling or am I overly tired and just think so?

Don't forget to check in on my one gift a day idea ( 24 gift project) for December!

That's such a cool idea! I think we have a ton on envelopes like that.

You don't know how tired I was when I posted this blog and I am so thrilled to see that you all think this is cool too and it wasn't just me! My insecurity was getting the best of me and I almost deleted this post...lol Hugs and happy Holidays!

This card is absolutely adorable. I love it. Now I am going to be saving all these envelopes that I get. I love to re-purpose things. Who would have ever thought to do this? Thanks for sharing. Love & blessings from NC!
