Recycling, Upcycling and Handmade Envelopes

At Yorkshire Crafts, we're very keen on recycling and upcycling wherever we possibly can.  To keep costs down, we use recycled packaging for all our parcels, and if we can't recycle a ready-made box to pack an item in, we'll custom make one to fit it out of recycled cardboard.  We also upcycle things such as cereal boxes to make book envelopes, so not only keeping our prices low, but also doing our bit for the environment as well.

As we also enjoy making handmade cards and altered stationery items, it made sense to progress to making some handmade envelopes.  These are currently available in packs of six, all different designs, and come with address labels.  We'll also be producing sets of handmade envelopes made from recycled magazines.



We'll be adding these to the shop over the next few days.
