MMM - Mid-week Motivation - Upcycling

This week I have a little tip for you - before you throw away spent envelopes from your morning post - check inside.
Look what I found this morning

This gorgeous leaf pattern was inside an envelope  - nearly thrown away!!
Here's what I made with it



  1. that is brilliant... i would never think of checkin inside an envie.... and wow what a wonderful card....!!! now where are the stamp details... i think i may need these.... lol

  2. What a beautiful card with my favourite SU flowers... fabulous idea I'll be rooting in the recycle bin tee hee

  3. Genius idea! I'm always throwing envelopes away, so must remember to check for great patterns now!

  4. Really gorgeous Jacqueline and it's something I do too although I've never yet seen a green one like this. It makes a fabulous background.

  5. Wow - that is a really fab. piece of recycling! I don't think I have ever seen an envelope quite like that one before - love the way you've used it on your card.
