Recycled Cookbook Envelopes

Howdy folks! I know it's been a while, but I've made a ton of stuff lately! I've been spending more time making & less time blogging about what I've made. I'm super excited about tonight's project.

These are mini envelopes made out of pages from a 1934 cookbook. I used the bread section for these 3 envelopes.
Aren't they super cute! The envelopes are a beautiful old color. I cut plain notecards to go in each one out of offwhite cardstock & the color matched perfectly.

One of the greatest features is that you read most of the recipe in case you wanted to try it out. I think these envelopes will be perfect for all kinds of things. They'd be really great to attach to a gift of kitchen gadgets, or to write a little thank you note for someone who had brought you dinner after a surgery or illness.

Ok, here are the specifics. The envelopes are almost 4 inches wide by 3 1/8 inches tall & the note cards are 3 2/3 inches wide by 3 inches tall. I plan on listing these on Etsy tonight. I listed the music envelopes after I made them, but they haven't sold yet. As long as I'm having fun making them, I'm not gonna stress about selling. Have a great evening & hopefully I'll be back soon with more fun stuff I've made lately!
