Decorating mailing envelopes

large yellow Mailing envelope

I want to have a few of these hand-decorated mailing envelopes around as samples for my August Gelli-plate workshop.  So I printed up another one.  

This one is actually more a "stamped" one done with those wonderful "magic foam" blocks you get at Joann's and then you heat one side with a heat gun and press it into anything that has a pattern and the foam block will HOLD that pattern semi-permanently…that is until you heat it again.  The blue pattern as made by pressing it into a saucer full of beads.  The purple pattern by pressing into a bunch of Q-tips.

Some of the others are stencils.  So actually maybe this is not the best example…it has some Gelli plate printing on the reverse side.
