A little one - envelope

More mail art! This time the envelope is not to be send anywhere but as a decoration on a paper-clip. Although I am curious what the smallest size is our mail service would send. A stamp sized envelope? The stamp could be on one side and the adress label on the other... mh.. I will try it! Definitly!

The envelope is really useable in the meaning of having a card inside. There you could write down little messages if you would give one of these away as a gift.

I made the envelope out of one of my inchies I made out of book paper. Just a little folding of the edges. I cut the upper pieces of the lower edge. The upper edge goes over it quite nice. I hade some adhesive (one-side!) tape behind the three lower edges to glue them together.

A little piece of white paper for the adress label and a little bit of red paper as a stamp. I just scribbled over both.

And a little bit of red paper for as a card. "Read me" i think is suitable for a book mark.

Fits in! And I like that the first word is readable. It was not intentioned but I will keep this in mind if I make another one :)

I cut with my paper knife through the bottom of the envelope, put the paper clip inside with glue and let it all dry. During the drying time I left the knife inside the envelope so the clip would just be glued to one side of the envelope!

My label is on the other side of the red little card ^^

I think this would make a tiny but useable bookmark!


  1. how very cute, claire! it makes a great and tiny bookmark!

  2. Wie süß! Total niedlich und so eine gute Idee als Mitbringsel oder so... =)

  3. This is so cute! You have the best ideas!

  4. This is so sweet! I'd love a little tiny love note like this!

  5. Wow! Just amazing. Thanks for linking to Craftastic Monday:)

  6. I love itty bitty notes, this so cute, I bet my daughter would love me to make her some for her to use with her pretend play. Thanks for sharing with us at A Crafty Soiree see you next time:)

  7. Actually the post office has a minimum size they will accept - which I think is 3 1/2 inches x 5 inches. They stopped accepting tiny ones because they got caught in the post office machinery.

    1. We also have here in germany a minimal size... but it takes some of the fun out of sending snail mail :) I think I should try it nevertheless! Thanks for the reminder :)
