Altered Mini Folder

 These mini envelopes were perfect for sending graduation pictures to a niece up in Montana.  They are small but made of a sturdy card stock and just the right size for about eight pictures. I altered the front and back of the envelope using graduation paper, rub on stickers, music notes and panther paws that are symbols of my sons high school days.  Now my niece can store the pictures and carry them without worrying about bending the pictures.  I did not have to leave space for the Mailing or Return Address as I enclosed the mini envelope in a box with a birthday gift for my niece.  I also decorated the gift box, only I forgot to take a picture.  You know how you forget things as you get older.  I have heard from my niece who said eveyone who saw the box loved it.  The box was decorated with a birthday theme.  She is using the box to store some of her little treasures.

What a great idea! I've made photo mailers by folding sturdy 8.5x11 card stock in half and stapling up the sides.
