Recycled magazine note cards

I am a self-admitted magazine junkie. I have stacks of glossies tucked away all over our humble little apartment dwelling (what if I need that article later?!) Don't get me wrong, I'm no crazy hoarder — you'd have to dig a little to find my well-disguised stacks. But I'm just reluctant to give up shiny, pretty papers. When I first opened my Etsy shop, I stumbled on a huge selection of old Martha Stewarts being given away at the library — score! Inspired by this Storque post on Etsy, I have found the perfect outlet for all my collected and saved glossies. I downloaded an envelope template and now make my own little envelopes cut from magazine pages. I try to use pages that are interesting on both sides. I use them for thank you's with a sweet little flat card dressed up with a corresponding bit of paper. Fun, yes?

  2. I wanted to let you know that when I received my little magazine envelope with my order I was super surprised! Actually it was an, "Extra" surprise because I didn't see it in there until last week! :) xoxoxoxo
