So often we focus on what’s in the envelope, we forget the envelope itself. But this collection, the first of its kind, takes the opposite approach: it embraces the envelope as a creative form for crafters to play with. Devised by a group of talented designers, these unique handmade envelopes come in all shapes and sizes. Some simply involve embellishing commercial envelopes with surface treatments, such as stamping and stencilling. Others require folding techniques, while a few use unconventional and recycled materials. There are projects for packaging CDs, photographs, gift cards and more.
