Magazine Page Envelopes + the PERFECT Multipurpose Business Card

Pamela Hovland, who designed Improvised Life’s first site design, periodically sends us notes in improvised envelopes she makes out of pages torn from magazines and catalogs, whenever she comes across a compelling visual. We were charmed to get her Spring greeting in the form of two letters, both with images of people LEAPING on the outside, and her very cool note card within.

Pamela simply folds the page in three, staples the ends, and affixes stickers for address and return. She seals the back side with big round sticky dots…

Equally as charming, is the note card hidden inside, with a short, potent message:

The cards are their own bit of brilliance: On one side is a space for writing a note, address, phone number, anything. On the opposite is Pamela’s name. The little card is the perfect business card that never gets out of date: as Pamela’s work changes, she can write in whatever info she wants, or use them just to say hello.

Wrote Pamela:  I designed those cards years ago and printed one in white and one in orange. I use them for many things — note cards, gift tags, luggage tags, etc.

An idea to steal.
