security!

October 28, 2008

i’ve been collecting security envelopes recently to use in collages. the patterns are amazing. so i decided to google and try and find others who are doing the same thing….big shocker, there are a bunch. for example, jk keller collected the envelopes for a long time and is now making laser-cut envelopes with the patterns…called “insecurity envelopes.”
