Not your garden variety envelope

Lately I have been doing a lot of financials and bill paying, which I hate doing.  So what do I do when I don't want to do something?  You guessed it, procrastinate by doing something else.  I told myself that I needed to have something to put all my loose receipts in so that they were contained.  This leather envelope is what I came up with.




While I was at it, I used the opportunity to use up some of my leather scraps and practice some stamping.  The stamping did  not turn out that well, but I got to make something useful from scraps that was taking up space.
I can't wait to do more of these!

What a clever idea! It's always convenient to turn your unused scraps into something usable :)

Thanks everyone! I have already cut out a few pieces and may embellish. I am not sure about the stamping unless I use vegetable tanned leather.
