    Good idea. I never thought of that. Is there a kind of size guide? I mean if I wanted to make an envelope for A4 sized sheets, that are going to be folded in thirds, what size paper do you use? Does that make sense?

    You can use A4 sized paper to make an envelope for A4 sized sheets, but you would have to fold them into quarters. If you want to make an envelope for A4 sized sheets folded into thirds then the paper for the envelope has to be bigger than A4 for the width. There are plenty of online guides for making envelopes.

    Yes. And yesterday. And the day before that. I bought $100 of vintage stamps last week to fuel the habit. When there's a lull, I can always turn to Postcrossing, where I can max out at 26 travelling cards at any one time (though I'm usually 5-10 cards).

    $100 of vintage stamps? Wow! That is impressive. Hopefully, I might see some

    I find this tool handy for making envelopes. I imagine it could be sourced somewhere closer to you.

    Your one-upmanship is getting annoying. I may see if I can pull back that postcard I sent yesterday!

    I have various templates and kits to use to make envelopes, but for a start the best way is to actually carefully take apart an envelope that you have received, that you like, and feel is the right size for whatever paper you want to use for your envelopes.
    Then either draw around it on the back of your paper, or draw around it on a piece of card, cut it out, and make your envelope from your new template.

    Hi Chrissy, I hadn't thought of that. Great idea.

    I have a We R Memory Keepers board, mentioned somewhere else on this forum... but my only real gripe is it wants you to start with square sheets of paper...

    I have something similar that I bought from Hobby Lobby, and that wants you to start with square paper too. It's not always ideal to do so.

    I wrote another 3 sides of A4 for my current penpal letter - I am hoping to finish it this week before it gets too enormous!

    I reached 17 sides of A4, oh god. I need to work out how to finish it, and enclose some swatches and a tiny Christmas note, because this was supposed to be the November letter!

    Brevity. Soul of wit.
