Hello Friends. I thought for today's Flourish Friday I would show you one of the ways I recycle/reuse envelopes.
When addressing envelopes, I will occasionally make a mistake. (Shocking, I know...) I hate to waste an otherwise useful envelope, especially one in such a pretty color.
I grabbed some light weight, black paper from my scrap bin and cut two pieces smaller than the dimensions of the envelope.
I pulled out my trusty, inspiring copy of The Universal Penman by George Bickham and found a flourish that I though would work well. Using a white Gelly Roll pen, I did a simplified, monoline version of the flourish.
I addressed them very casually. Using an Uhu glue stick, I glued the pieces to the fronts of the envelopes, covering up the mistakes.
Finally, I added the postage...my current FAVE stamps!
I like the look of tucking the "To:" into the top, oval of flourish. Next time, I will tuck the zip code into the bottom oval. (The USPS will *LOVE* that, right?!) :)
Wishing you a terrific, Memorial Day weekend.
Go forth and flourish...
...especially you, Pacers! (You can do it!!!!)
