I have created envelopes out of double side scrapbook paper with my favorite Kreate-a-Lope template (top) and also by simply folding scrapbook paper in half and sewing up the sides, see below.
|It's fun to use various stitches!|
Template envelopes above, and below you will see I also made a couple of oversize envelopes. I've done collage on top of a regular manila file folder, which was cut down in size a bit and then re-folded. See below for some fun examples-click on each photo for more detail.

I got this idea for making a large envelope out of a file folder when doing research for this swap and finding a video on altered mail art by Roben Marie Smith. I will add the video below for you to watch, after showing you a second large altered mail art envelope -hope you enjoy!!
|The front -ready to add a participants name!!|
