On Wednesday evening, I attended a workshop at the Paper Place called, Shameless Self Promotion - Custom Presentation Enclosures. We began the workshop by selecting an oversized piece of Nepalese paper and an 8.5x11 sheet of Chiyogami paper. From these pieces, we were given ideas on how to create various sized envelopes, a presentation folder and as an added bonus - a quick lesson on taking the folder one step further to create a pamphlet stitched folder.

There's something very satisfying about creating handmade envelopes and folders. Much like card-making, it's simple and provides instant gratification. There's also something reminiscent of childhood days during the act of cutting-and-pasting and really, I love any excuse to touch/handle paper. :) Since the workshop, I've gone on to purchase four full sheets of Nepalese paper in various patterns and colors to make a batch of envelopes at home. ♥
