Inside out

Here is an idea that will make our bill-mail less outrageous. Is simple, environmental, creative and completely free my friends. By recycling those security envelopes that we constantly get, we can create a really cool stationary to reuse later on.

1. Carefully de-construct your envelopes using your fingers, a letter opener or a blade, making sure not to rip the paper.
2. Unfold the envelope completely, and flip over so printed side is facing down. Re-fold the envelope inside-out along the score lines and apply glue along any seams that overlap. To seal the envelopes, we put a little glue along the top edge and tucked it under the main envelope flap for a clean finish. Done!
