Item details

This listing is for an assortment of 10 envelopes made from recycled, eco friendly, handmade paper. If you want more than 10, just order multiple quantities upon checkout. You save 5% off the original price with this listing.

Sheets of paper are sold in a separate listing.

4 by 5 inch envelopes measure to FIT 4x5 inch sheets of paper.
5 by 7 envelopes measure to FIT 5x7 inch sheets of paper.
9.25 by 4 inch envelopes fit an 8.5 by 11 inch sheet of paper when folded in thirds.

The "With Envelope glue" variety is ready-to-seal. There is a strip of glue on the envelope flap that can be licked, or dampened with a sponge and pressed to seal the envelope.

These envelopes are made from handmade paper that is recycled from 100% cardboard and chipboard scraps that I have collected and recycled myself. The colors shown in the photo are examples only. You will receive a different assortment of colors than those pictured.

Mailing these envelopes is not as simple as mailing commercially made envelopes, simply because the paper is softer and the abrasive post office sorting machines can erase the mailing address, making them illegible and unable to continue through the system. So what I recommend is writing the address on a commercially made label, making sure it is good and stuck to the envelope, and asking your postal clerk to hand cancel the envelope. Ask the clerk at your local post office how to hand cancel the envelopes.

This paper is good to use with:
colored pencil
acrylic paints
watercolor paint

If you accumulate lots of scraps, send them to me for up to 20% off any item in my shop (see profile for more details)!

Your order will be packaged in biodegradable and upcycled materials, including cardboard, newsprints, and biodegradable PLA film bags made from plant fibers.

How cool! I've always wanted handmade paper. These envelopes are just beautiful! I love the weight of it. Thank you!

This combo was perfect. I will order again. Nice variety of colors and textures. Some ragged edged, some cut. Exactly what I was looking for for thank you notes and handwritten letters - almost a lost art. A lot of matches between paper and envelopes - plenty of nice non-matching combinations.

Zip or postal code

RUSH FEES: If you need an order to ship before the listed processing time (viewable under the "shipping" tab of the listing) please contact me before you complete your purchase, as you will need to pay an additional rush fee, amounting to 10% of the item(s) cost.

Shipping fees paid with your order cover USPS postage, insurance, tracking, as well as shipping supplies, such as tape, labels, printer ink, and other necessary materials.

HOLIDAY SHIPPING: Domestic deadline: Dec 7th. International Deadline: Nov 11

I ship domestically via USPS First Class for smaller items and USPS Priority for heavier ones. Both include tracking and insurance. First Class packages are estimated to arrive around 5-7 days domestically. Priority packages are estimated to arrive in 2-3 days domestically. These delivery times are estimates only, not guarantees.

If you wish to guarantee that you receive a package by a certain date, you need to contact me prior to purchase in order to establish which shipping method is appropriate for your needs. This may require upgraded shipping and an additional expense for you based on USPS's prices.

I will not refund shipping costs for orders that did not arrive within the estimated First Class or Priority Mail timeline, as USPS does not refund shipping costs for items that arrive "late" only for ones that are deemed lost. If your First Class or Priority mail package arrives later than the estimate, you are eligible for a refund of the item cost only once the items are returned to me in their original condition. You are eligible for a refund of postage if your package that was shipped via a guaranteed service (usually Priority Mail Express Guaranteed) arrives past the guaranteed delivery date.


International orders are shipped via USPS First Class International shipping should be expected 6 weeks after shipment. I can upgrade to quicker shipping upon request, for an additional fee for both domestic and international shipments. Please be aware of customs requirements in your area. They may require that you pick your purchase up from the customs office, or pay additional taxes. If you fail to pick up your package from the customs office, and the package is returned to me, I will resend the item once I receive a payment from you to cover reshipment. I am not legally responsible to pay customs fees or VAT taxes. These are taxes imposed upon you as a citizen of your government and it is illegal for me to pay for them.

As often as possible, I use repurposed packaging for sending products. I take proper precautions to make sure paper isn't bent and items are protected from moisture. It saves you money on shipping because I don't have to pay for the post-office boxes and envelopes. Most of our packaging is now biodegradable, including waterproof PLA film bags made from plant fibers.


If your package is damaged in transit or it never arrives (assume it is lost after 1 month for domestic orders, 2 months for international), convo me and we will work out a solution. For product damaged upon arrival, see “Returns.”


I accept Pay Pal, Direct Checkout, and Personal Check. Prices are listed in US Dollars. Payment is due within 48 hours of purchase. After this time I will cancel the order.

If paying by personal check, I will wait until I have received payment, deposited the check, and it has cleared the bank until I ship your purchase. This will significantly delay the receipt of your item, so if you need something in a hurry, please use paypal or direct checkout.

RUSH FEES: If you need an order to ship before the listed processing time (viewable under the "shipping" tab of the listing) please contact me before you complete your purchase, as you will need to pay an additional rush fee, amounting to 10% of the item(s) cost.

Returns & exchanges

Damaged items:
I do accept returns for product that was damaged upon arrival. You need to completely photograph all damages to the external packaging as well as the item itself. I cannot process an insurance claim without these photos. Then email or convo me with these pictures and I will confirm the address to which you are returning the damaged product. Then you must take the damaged package to your local post office for inspection. USPS requires the items to be inspected in order to fulfill a damage claim. Once I receive the photos and USPS damage claim inspection info and I have a photo of the receipt showing you have returned the damaged product, I will refund your purchase amount or send you a replacement (whichever you prefer).

Other Returns:
I will refund in full or send replacements for any items that were sent in error, damaged, or misrepresented. Please contact me to work out a solution. If you wish to return an item for any other reason, return shipping will be paid by the buyer and will not be reimbursed, and any refunds given will be for the item cost only, not the initial shipping paid.

Custom items are non-returnable and non-refundable.

For all returns the product must be postmarked as being returned to me within 7 business days, must include delivery confirmation, and must arrive to me undamaged (beyond any damaged-upon-receipt claims documented via photos), including strong odors the paper may have absorbed (for example, smoke/cigarette/cigar smells).

Additional policies

Items come from a non-smoking, pet-friendly environment.

Message me prior to purchase if you have any holiday cards to recycle. I offer 5% off any single item in my shop per pound of holiday cards (not including any packaging, such as boxes) for up to 20% off any single item total.
