Crafted : Anthropologie Envelopes

Saturday, June 4, 2011

So apparently when you graduate, people send you presents!
Something I wasn't aware of but I'm down with the idea.
So I've been making thank you cards/envelopes for the lovely family and friends who were awesome and sent me something.



I can't take credit for the Polaroid cards. Aren't they so sweet though? You can buy them here.




The envelopes are made from old Anthro magazines. (Of course)









Considering that I sent these to people like my grandma, I wonder what their reaction to them will be. I love the pictures of course but I could totally see my aunts being like "..what the random pomegranate?" ha. Oh well,  I love them so I'm sending them anyway.

    2nd: These cards are sooooo cute!
    3rd: I'm going to Amsterdam, Berlin and Utrecht in July. I was going to France as well, but it got cut out of the schedule. Dang! That would have been awesome if we went to the same place at the same time!
