Makin' Envelopes

Some experimenting with the reprints I talked about in an earlier post. It was perfect to fold them into envelopes. A little glue on the side and a white label on the front.
Stuffed with my postcards, it was more sturdy.
I sent one to Tom (who sparked this idea) and he gave me some feedback on how the envelope held up through the postal system. A little bit worn on the corners but otherwise it was OK. A fun little experiment indeed!

These are so cool -- are you going to sell them? I notice Chronicle books is published stationery -- I bought some in Seattle, I think it had uggly doll cartoons on it and it was the fold-together kind.
