Have you ever visited the Felt & Wire website? Did you know they also have a shop? If you love paper crafts, stationery, card making or crafting in general, inspiration and shopping- you’re going to love both!
Recently I was sent an incredible array of colorful envelopes in many sizes and finishes from Mohawk Paper, the company behind Felt & Wire. As an old-skool print designer, I go waaay back with Mohawk. I’ve spec’d many a project on their papers. But now they actually sell their envelopes in smaller packages of 10 for the crafter! So, I thought I’d show you one fun idea for utilizing both A2 and A8 size envelopes. I chose the colors Coco, Ultra Fuchia, Orange and Sun Yellow to create a simple personalized stationery set.
Using art modified from a page of printers cuts found in one of my rare/early 20th century books, (FREE for you below,) I printed the images to paper to create envelope insert liners. I trimmed them to fit and slid them into the bright colored envelopes, attaching with a few light dabs of glue. When making your inserts, be sure they don’t end up covering the gummed strip section of the flap.
I glued the flap of one A8 envelope to the lower bottom of another to create a pocket folder.
That’s all there is to a simple but personal letter writing portfolio/stationery set. Create several, they make the nicest birthday gifts and shower favors.Here is a free PDF digital download of clip art for you to use on this or any other projects.
