This post is part of the Upcycled Crafting Challenge (#freefromtrash) hosted by Calley, The Eco Chic, and is part of a one month challenge to create from trash. This challenge will hopefully open your eyes to the number of items that we still end up trashing every day that could be used by ourselves or our kids to create fun and useful items. To find out more about the challenge and to see other projects click on over to Calley’s announcement post.

Upcycled Challenge: Cardboard to template #freefromtrash
Here's an easy one. Use the cardboard from a cereal box or the like to create a template to make envelopes. This is the template for a 5x7 envelope from an 8.5x11inch sheet of paper, but you can size it up or down. Just be sure to use the USPS guidelines for the correct size of a first class letter, found here.
