Homemade Map Envelopes

I love maps and have been saving them for years. I saw this idea of recycled maps made into envelopes on Pinterest. I made a few of these, using an old Texas road map. Celeste asked me to make her a card. 

I followed this tutorial. It was very easy. Take apart an existing envelope, use it to trace over your map and then follow the fold marks from the original envelope to put together your new envelopes. I used regular stick glue and then put everything under a heavy book overnight. 

I am linking this post to the weekly Make & Listen hosted by Simple Things Notebook.
