I had seen a youtube video where the artist made mail art using regular office manilla file folders. I loved the idea of the envelopes being strong and tried my hand at a few of those.
You start with a letter size manilla folder and you cut it to the size you want your envelope to be. (Don't throw away the other part of the folder!! You can cut tags out with the Alterations Tag Die!).
After some collage, some stamping and some this and that.....
Voila! Mail Art!
This one was also done with a file folder by with color sprays instead of paper collage.
I sprayed the envelope with some beautiful sprays from Lindeys' Stamp Gang. The paper was so flimsy I was not at all happy. I thought maybe it would stiffen some after being sprayed. NOT!
Some stamps... and MORE mail art!
I need to send out 10 in total so 6 down and 4 to go!
