envelope book

The East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse was selling these resealable inter-office memo envelopes the other day, and I knew I had to make a book of them. (This is not an original idea: I copied it from Esther K. Smith's fantastic How To Make Books.) I wish that mine, like the ones in Smith's book, had all of the names written and crossed out on them, or were other wise actually used. But my current office doesn't use these, and a place where I temped that did went through them very slowly. (In my 6 weeks of working there, I only came across one of these envelopes! I still have it, it didn't quite go with the blank, crisp envelopes. But maybe someday I will accumulate more!)

Unfortunately these photos are not the greatest, my lens is good for smaller books and drawings of a certain size, and this book was just a bit too big! Once I get a different lens I might photograph it over again for my website.

I plan to use this book organize receipts and pay stubs.
