Hand Made Map Envelopes

I bought this huge atlas a few months back. It's lovely, it has demographic maps, satalite maps, road maps, political maps, even some maps of the solar system. YUM. Then I never did anything with it. I'm not so much a collage girl, although I love the look.

Then the other night I decided to make some more envelopes and guess what is almost perfect? You can get two envelopes out of one sheet of this paper! I did mine on the scor-pal, using a totorial off their website.

Here they are.
Because I'll be giving these to my mom to use I put some double sided tape inside so she can just peel off the liner to seal them up.

Oh my gosh! These are so cool! I think I'm gonna have to hit Goodwill or something to find a cheap, old atlas to tear apart.
