Decorated Envelopes

Every year, for the last 23 years, the Friends of Calligraphy put on an event for it's members called Trivial Pursuits.  In order to apply for a spot in the workshop, one has to send in their application in a decorated envelope.  Only 40 people are accepted to a full day of six-50 minute workshops learning trivial pursuits.  I have never had one class that was trivial.  They have all been really great.  I will post later for the upcoming one in January.  I am the coordinator for it this year.  These are some of the envelopes that I had sent in years ago.

Closed with an indication on where to pull open, I made
a perforation cut around three sides.

This is it when it opens, the envelope pops up and the gold,
Looking forward  to fun, card stands up, and the stamp also lifts.
I took a colorful map of the Bay Area and made
a legend with Illustrator that had the address.
I used a California state stamp.   It arrived safely.
I was in Montevideo when I applied for that years
Trivial Pursuits.  I made the envelope with various
origami papers sewn together,  embroidered the
address and sent it with an Uruguay Stamp.
It reached Anne without a stamp cancellation.
