Here's the ATC I made for the luncheon today ...
It's made from using the patterned inside of security envelopes. Using recycled materials is not only a good way to be “green” for the environment, it’s also a great way to save money. So often I come across objects and imagine a new and creative use for it ... but it took my friend Pam to introduce me to using the insides of security envelopes.
Below is the first ATC I made using security envelopes and the last two pictures are cards created by Pam.
Maybe you'll apply this to your own crafting projects ... I can already see the piles of those envelopes! Oh, and if you absolutely adore these patterns and want more, check out this Flickr group dedicated to envelope security patterns. Enjoy!
