Simply Resourceful

Simple ways to be more conscious about how we use our resources.

Homemade Calendar Envelopes

Before you recycle old calendars, consider this unique way of reusing them...make them into envelopes!  I started making these last year and they worked really well!  Best of all, I can customize the size of envelope for its use.  For example, my family sends picture cards for Christmas instead of cards.  We design our own pictures to fit a standard 4x6 size.  To finish off the envelope I use self-adhesive labels for writing the addresses.  When the labels are gone, I'll just use scrap paper and glue or tape.

To make the envelopes, I traced the picture and left about 1/4 inch on all sides before gluing the flaps on the sides.
