I found those used envelopes in my workplace.
The design is simple but interesting and inspiring.
I create a grid collages using those patterns.

Closer look of the patterns.

The pattern of the bottom left (green) was from Japan and bottom right (with grid thread) was from India.

Lay Hoon!! Great post!! LOVE your grid!! LOVE the photos of all the envelopes. Such a clever capture of evidence :) The pages are terrific, and so are the close-ups of all the interseting interiors of envelopes. Who knew there were that many variations? Awesome!!! Thanks for sharing with the team!
