Envelope Box

Good morning, today is Catch the Bug's Monday Anything But a Card day and I made a box to hold all the paper to make envelopes.
I collect cards for Send A Smile 4 Kids Canada and a lot of the time people donate their time to make the card and I make the envelope for it. I covered a good sturdy box with hand made paper that I got for a steal and then printed Bugaboo's Happy Birthday Envelope
out for the front.

I made a smaller version for the side and added the sentiment envelope paper

 I've already made close to 2000 envelopes!
