Envelopes

Inspire Me Thursday's prompt this week is envelopes. I reuse envelopes all the time and try to do this in imaginative ways, you can see some examples of this here.

The photo below shows a page from a book of haiku and collages I'm currently putting together, using a book that I won in a competition in one of Michelle Ward's GPP Street Team Crusades. Inside the front cover, I've pasted a herbal tea envelope onto the page and used it to store a Japanese phonecard with one of my haiku written on the back.

Cool art craft fusion, text texture, envirohaiku objet, like a magic spell almost, a truth at its heart, emanating through the layers, mainfest in your object, cool babananas

gingatao, your comments are an artform in themselves, thanks!

I think this is an excellent take on the prompt -- you've done an envelope and put something in it -- wonderful!!!

Hi Crafty! I always delight in how wonderfully and beautifully creative you are!! I wish my brain could come up with things like that.
p.s. Today I finally did the 10 x 10 meme that you tagged me for a while back!

I had never thought to re-use envelopes. That's a great idea. I usually just recycle. So many great ideas!
