-An Old Envelope and Card
-Map(s) or Atlas
-Pencil or Pen
-1 Piece Of Card Stock or Construction Paper
Open up the old envelope. Be sure to go slow as to not rip the envelope too much to deform the shape.
Trace the outline of the envelope on to your map or atlas page.
Cut the outline of your envelope until you have a duplicate, but in the map paper.
Glue the back side of the piece you just cut out to another piece of the map/atlas. Make sure to press and spread through the center outwards in order for the glue to stick. Re-glue edges if needed.
Cut out the envelope shape again following the edges of the piece you glued on.
Fold and crease the edges of the envelope inwards.
Apply glue to the edge of the piece that will be folded up in the middle, connecting the sides to form the bottom of the envelope.
Lay the side pieces on top of the edge you just glued. Press it firmly and then wait for it to dry before using.
Open up and trace your old card on to the piece of card stock or construction paper. Then, cut it out.
Glue the piece of paper you just cut out to another piece of map/atlas. Press it down and spread from the middle outwards. Re-apply glue to the edges if needed.
Fold the card in half and crease the middle.
Tada! You're done. So easy and simple, and incredibly cool.
