2-3 Unofficial Thing A Day

It is valentines day cards inside hand made envies.
I am in a swap on Swap-bot called Old School Valentines.  The deal is to send valentines cards like we sent in grade school.  We have 5 partners.

Easy swap. So I go to Walgreen's to buy a box of valentines cards.  I was a bit put-off by the selection.  They had a decent variety but they were not like they were when we were kids.  They were all commercialized. I can't even tell you which characters there were, all I know is that I didn't like them.  I finally ended up with some farm animal related cards. They're cute, but I still wanted something more generic, or plain.


The next thing that irked me was that there were no envelopes! I already knew I was going to have to mail them in a larger envelope but I had expected to be able to put them in their own envelope!  I got a bright idea to make my own.  So that is what you see up there... handmade envelopes.  I used a template for a small square rectangle envelope.  In doing this project I realized that I'm not too good with paper, glue and scissors. well, I don't really care to use them together like this.  I'll use them again, I just won't like it.  :P 

So there you have it, my Unofficial-Thing-a-Day.
