I'm doing some of the little things that matter in the long run, such as transferring addresses and birthdates from my 2012 address book to my 2015 copy. (Since I have the time.) This notation came as a surprise. Naturally, Google was forthcoming to enlighten me just enough to make me wonder why-why.
No need to wonder why I culled this page, right? Make something. What do I make of this? With this? From this? But never why this. It's perfect as is I reckon. So why can't I think up and create clever pieces like this?
This is often my speed--two steps up from idle. You know how people are making coloring books for adults now, since it's supposed to be great for our brains, and it is meant to be a way to relax? Well, doodling is good for me when I stress out over not being clever-clever at collage. I'm crazy for the silver marker by American Crafts. The red is enough to make me crazy too! The tips never clog or stall, and the red looks like you're writing with red liquid chalk. They're made in the USA! Oh, yea.
K.I.S.S. Keep it simple sister. That's what it means. And not much beats making simple envelopes. How simple was this one?
I'll tell you how simple. "Measure twice, cut once" sounds like rocket science, that's how simple this was. It took two cuts to give the flap gently rounded curves on the top of my envelope's front. You want authenticity? There's even pigeon poo.
The back side is a single subscription page for two subscription opportunities. One piece of purple down the middle to keep the perforations intact was a simple trick.
Close-ups are fun. I don't get the hot dog part. I didn't know bugs vomited. The B.I.G. headline is funny, I think.
I believe that about the Batman. I figured he was on something the first time he bit my neck. And Madonna committed robbery. (Cradle robbing!) That's a headline!
Two folds, two cuts. two lines of glue, one strip of purple tape and you're done, except for deciding where to put the label and stamp. And, here you have The Lazy Woman's Guide to Envelope Making 101.
