Recently, Anne Elser posted a wonderful blog post showing envelopes she created from vintage books. She genially agreed to have it shared on our blog as well. We feel certain you’ll be impressed with her original, lovely work and that you’ll enjoy her description of her process in her own words. Enjoy!
I’ve had a wonderful time lately creating envelopes out of pages from vintage illustrated books. This process invites you to become more inventive in small, manageable chunks. It’s just a little envelope, right?
Each piece is completely unique and can be folded in a variety of ways. There are color, composition, and placement choices to be made and as long as your envelope is at least 3.5 inches tall and 5 inches wide, the U.S. Post should deliver it fine.
We hope you have found inspiration for your next envelope exchange in Ann’s work! Visit Anne’s blog to see more of her unique work.
