I am very much into crafts that recycle stuff, give is a second life so to say. BUT i do not want to reuse stuff that will not give me a hundred percent great result, i do consider quality a very important aspect. I am quite content with the result of this batch of enevelopes though. They are recycled pages from magazines and i think they look cool. If i would get a postcard or letter in an envelope like this, i would keep them both.
