For some reason, I am always drawn to things like this. Recently, I came across this box of old envelopes. They are yellowed, brittle, and quite fragile. The gummy closures are sealed shut just from years of sitting so snugly in this box. Initially, I thought I would use them as envelopes, but after examining them more closely, I realized they were just too frail.
I am in love with their time worn patina and I couldn't bear the thought of just throwing them away, even though their original use is no longer an option.
So I set about stamping them with various frenchie designs and tying them with vintage string, seam binding and twine to achieve this look.......
I will be displaying them at the shop as Christmas tree ornaments and I'm giving you a little sneak peek!
They would work on gifts, stockings, or just hanging on a bulletin board. I may make some without the string as they could be framed too.
A fun little project for a slow day at the shop!
