{Use your kit scraps} How to make an envelope with your scraps!

Hello TTT fans! I will be your host for the next couple of weeks and I have planned a little series with ideas on what you can do with your kit scraps (I seem to collect them!).
You've eagerly opened your kit, you've happily created several pages, you've even made a few cards, and now, what do you do with the little pieces of papers and random embellishments left?

Well, today, we are making fun envelopes (and they'll match the cards you've created!):
- kit leftovers
- good glue (I use this one)
- washi/japanese tape (optional)

1/ Find an envelope of the format you want to replicate and take it apart:
2/ Pick a bunch of paper scraps from an old kit (these are from TTT's March kit #2) and organize them into a shape a little bigger than the width and height of your envelope making sure that there's enough overlap to glue them together:
3/ Adhere all the pieces making sure to apply glue to the edges.
4/ Trace the shape of your envelope on the back of your collage and cut it out:
5/ Score the folding line according to your original envelope, fold and glue (again go to the edges).
6/ Add washi tape and a tag (from the leftovers) and voila:
I hope you'll give these fun and easy envelopes a try!
As always, if you have any questions, leave them in the comments below. I'll be back later with more ways to use your kit leftovers!
