I Can't Stop Making Envelopes!

Oh dear.  I do think that I have an addictive personality.  Armed with a selection of my photographed printed collages and some of my other artwork, combined with a pencil, ruler and an envelope punch board, I am building up a stash of envelopes!

It is so satisfying to see a piece of plain white printer paper transformed into a beautiful and original envelope.  No two will ever be the same.  I am loving doing this.  I'd better stop now.  The ironing pile is getting higher by the day.  I needed a diversion tactic after having a large tooth removed yesterday.  Making things is my reward and my salvation!

Ha, ha! I also have one of those envelope punch boards and have been addicted to it ever since its arrival. I love what you've been doing with yours.

The envelopes are beautiful and very useful too. I'm sure making them helped take your mind off your tooth.

Hope you are feeling better after your visit to the dentist, Simone - the envelopes are lovely:)

I think you deserve a bit of a crafty indulgence after braving the dentist.
Hope all is well.
