I love, love, love this video presentation! I'm going to make this for sure. I love the idea of making envelopes, in general, and also using up some of my card stock, my paper, and I even have some wallpaper I can use, as well as calendars, etc. It's going to be so much fun!

Great for putting gift vouchers in for Xmas presents and birthday presents. I particularly liked the idea of recycling materials such as magazines etc.
