KRAFTY SATURDAY

Good Saturday to you!  I have a great craft for you today and I think you will like it!  Don't know what to do with all those calendars now that we are winding down the year of 2010??  Well for years I have been making envelopes and wrapping paper from them!  And this is how:
Fold calendar page as you would a letter in thirds.

Then glue the bottom pocket on 1/4" both sides of the envelope or:
Stitch as I have here on the sewing machine


Add a sticky label and your return label and on the back close with decorative seal or initial sticker as I have done here.
This is a wonderful, easy craft for your kids, grandkids, college kids who will love these home-made beauties when receiving them in the mail!
I also made a pencil box last year for myself by folding the heavy calendar picture to accommodate the length of the pencils, embellished it with glued on rick-rack in gold and 2 buttons that I cut the loop off of the back and glued flat on the box.  As you can see, I use this.


And last but not least, use the calendar pages to wrap small gifts!



I sure hope you like these simple craft ideas today and please let me know if you do by commenting!  Have a most wonderful weekend and do visit my other blogs when you can, Thanks!!
