Homemade Envelopes

You can probably find this craft pretty much anywhere, but I decided to use the directions from the Nov '07 BRIO magazine. Here goes! "Carefully open an envelope all the way, including the glued flaps. Lay it flat. If you want, glue it to a piece of cardboard and then cut around it to make a template. Trace the shape of the envelope/template onto pages from magazines, wrapping paper, newspapers, or whatever cool paper from the pile. Cut out the pattern, fold it and glue the bottom flaps. If the paper is dark, just stick a label on the front before writing someone's name or address on it." Viola! Now I just need to try it myself.....
