As artists, we're constantly searching for ways to transform objects, it's as if some force imposes itself on us to create(!)...been there? Here, we've made envelopes from a heavy weight paper and painted them in a way that was pleasing to us. The next step is to create an artwork that coincides with the envelope that will be placed inside and given as a gift.
You can design your own envelope or use this pattern to trace onto a paper better suited for paint. You can find many envelope patterns on Pinterest as I did.
