Hi There! It’s Lynda from Scrapbook with Lynda and I’m so excited to be back to share another upcycling project with you. This time I’m sharing envelope upcycle ideas using the Bo Bunny Garden Grove collection. I love turning trash into useful items like these upcycled envelopes.
For these two projects I used different style envelopes from my recycle bin. Yup, these are both envelopes that came to me in the mail. Let’s look at each one.
Envelope Upcycle into Tag Pockets
I altered this envelope to hold tags in my junk journal. It can also be added to a mini book or sent as a fun greeting to a friend.
I’ll be sewing it into the binding of my junk journal, so only half of it will show at a time.
It was so easy to make. On the V side of the envelope I added a couple rows of Bo Bunny Garden Grove washi, then that cute bunny & chick sticker from the sticker sheet, plus a bit of torn book paper.
The inside of the envelope is lined with this great plaid paper from the Bo Bunny Collection, that matches the washi perfectly! Found a tag in the die cut pack, plus I made a few more to stuff the pockets with.
On the flip side I added some washi on the fold seam, then covered both sides with paper from the collection. This will look so cute in my junk journal!
Long Pocket Envelope Upcycle with Bo Bunny
Here’s another idea for upcycling envelopes - making a side pocket.
This pocket holds a note pad made from reclaimed paper, but you can put tags or photos in it.
First I lined the inside with a pretty flower print, then added the blue plaid paper.
Torn book paper along with a strip of paper from the Bo Bunny collection create a base for the bunny sticker.
The paper pad is made from reclaimed paper that I stapled at the top. Covered the staples with washi tape, then added the large bunny die cut.
On the inside there are several sheets of paper, so plenty of space to write. I’ll be adhering this to a page in my junk journal. Alternately, you can slip it in your purse, so you’ll have paper when you need it.
These two upcycled envelopes will look great in my junk journal, but they have so many other uses. And best of all I was able to give some trash a new life!
Please stop by next week to see my last upcycle project using the Bo Bunny Garden Grove collection. In the meantime check out my Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook pages to see other projects I’m creating.
