Recycled Envelopes

I'm the type of person who doesn't like to throw anything away. So I've been keeping all the brochures I got, thinking I'll find a use for them someday.

Of course, yesterday I got this idea to make them into envelopes, cos all these time I've been sending my packages using regular brown envelopes that I bought at the stationery shop, and I thought, why buy when I can make them myself?



They're so simple to make too.. Simply tape the sides together and it's done.



Next, I reused the blank side of the paper that I printed wrongly to write the address on.



Voila! Killed 2 birds with one stone. I got a cheap envelope, I don't have to buy any, and I reduced, reused and recycled all at once.
It's even stronger than regular paper if the brochure is the glossy kind of paper.
And the best part is, I got to reduce my guilt towards the earth too...
