Old Calenders

Recently I've been trying to think of ways to use old calender pictures now that the New Year is here. :) Some of the pictures were so pretty, and I did not want to just throw them out, so I decided to make a few envelopes out of some of the pictures and hang others. I will also probably be using some of them for home made cards.

We usually buy our calenders from Bible Truth Publishers. Their Scripture calenders are so beautiful! If you never have, I would recommend that you check out their web site. In addition to calenders, they carry many wonderful Stories and Biographies all at reasonable prices. We have ordered from them for many years.

The smaller calender pictures after being cut; they made great hangings.

To make envelopes out of old calenders simply
take apart a store bought envelope to use as a pattern,
cut and make adjustments as necessary.
Trace around the pattern, cut out and then glue the sides.

Finished envelopes. :)

Making envolopes out of calender pictures is a great idea! Do they cost more to send than regular envolopes? Thank you for visiting my blog!

Wow! Those are so pretty. I have a couple old calenders that I saved for the pictures and now I know what to do with them.

What a great idea! I have saved my calendar from the past two years because they were just too pretty to save out. Ironically, I was just trying to think of different things to do with book marks. I might be able to use my old calenders! Thanks for sharing!

Victoria Rebecca,
Hello! I'm sorry that I have not answered your question sooner! No, as far as I know the homemade envelopes do not cost more to send in the mail. :)
