Got Junk Mail? I know I do. It was fun to open my mailbox today and find 3 Swap-bot envies full of goodies. But there was also a credit card offer, a grocery store flyer and 2 catalogs. Let's make an envelope using up some of those throw-away items.

Pick 6 from this list and make your Junk Mail Mail Art Envie:

image from a grocery store flyer

a model from a catalog

a black and white something from a return envelope

a word (or a sticker) from a credit card offer

a postage stamp

something you wish for from a catalog

your address from the junk mail made into a return address label

an unusual item from a catalog

an animal image

a craft item image from a catalog or flyer

stripes or dots or other pattern

a number or numbers

You can add color to the envelope as well as remake a junk mail envie into the envie you use to send out to your partner. Include a list inside, listing the elements you used and a small flat surprise - a postcard, a note card, a bookmark or a handmade goodie by you.

Questions? Ask below. Have fun!
