My Niece Hannah - Keeping Christmas Eco

Have you ever noticed the inside of an envelope? 
This is Hannah - sister outlaw Lynne's daughter. A few year ago she made these gorgeous decorations from envelopes. I love how the delicate blue patterns we disregard are brought to the fore and enhanced by the origami.
So go and open all your bills, ignore them if you must, save the envelopes and get folding. Thanks for the photos Lynne!


  1. What a great idea! Recycling at it's best - and Christmassy too! Win win. Love it.x

  2. lovely work, clearly clever crafty hands run in the family! i love the designs on the insides of envelopes and the delicate shades, and am always on the look out for new or new to me designs. it certainly makes opening bills a tad more interesting!

  3. Yes Hannah is an amazing crafter and artist. Very talented.

  4. What a clever girl with her origami! There are beautiful patterns in envelopes. My Mum met a girl in Africa who decorates cards with the insides of envelopes and so mum started saving them for her. They looked fantastic altogether.
