Another one of my Japanese book purchases was this sweet little book called “Self-Made Envelope Stationery” (ISBN 978-4-8085-8541-9). It contains lots of projects to make cute stationery items from new and used envelopes. It is recycling Japanese style!
Here are a few pages from the book –
Sarah has been feeling crafty and has made her own envelope project – a small file made from envelopes and decorated with masking tape. It is the perfect size to store coupons or receipts.
She has also made a couple of tags by applying Japanese masking tape to shipping tags.
You can find some more of our security envelope projects here.
I hope to get into some sewing with my new supplies soon! I just have to organise the kids for their return to school next week first. The school holidays seemed to go way too fast this year!
