I have a ton of stacks of magazines sitting around my house and studio and try to find different ways to reuse them. This week I turned a few of them into envelopes. If you are like me and have a ton of magazine pages that need to get reused and you feel like sending a spicy envelope to a friend or your water company than read below!

Here’s how to reuse a magazine to make an envelope:

1. Pick a page that has an image you like on it.

2. Measure 2 inches down from the top of the short side and mark. Draw a line from that mark to the center of the short side. Do the same thing on the other side.

4. Fold the magazine from the bottom so that you create a triangle shape at the top of the page.
