I’ve always had a secret admiration for the patterns on security envelopes. That must be an interesting job to design those. Anyway, Gretchen over at Junk Mail Gems blog has made some brilliant pieces from them. Check out this great collage she made with some of the patterns she’s collected:And even more impressive- look at these beautiful hand rolled paper beads!! They look almost like asian or ethnic pottery! Purchasing info via her site.
