creative recycling: security envelopes

two mentions of the beauty of security envelopes in one week!

i've never gotten enough bills to notice the pretty patterns...but now i'm intrigued!

first, junk mail gems shared her amazing assortment of security envelope patterns that she's collected over the years. now she's even making rolled beads & jewelry from them. (above)

then, derek&laura of the curiousity shoppe (a super fun online store, by the way) posted this simple tutorial to reuse your leftover envelopes and make the most of their colorful insides. (below)

i am certainly not looking for more bills, but i wouldn't mind having some of this fun paper to play with.
