design i take for granted *part two*
Deviating from the grocery shelf and taking focus on the letter box, I bring you 'Design I take for Granted' - Part Two!
**Security Envelope Patterns**
Security envelope patterns are printed patterns found on the inside of envelopes. They are intended to make it very difficult, if not impossible, to be able to see through the envelope and read the content within.
I first opened my eyes to the patterns found inside envelopes after reading a post by Myf on DIY business cards. After reading Myf's post I searched the house for envelopes to start my on collection and as sad as it sounds I actually couldn't wait for the bills to start arriving so I could check out the security patterns.
Some pattern lovers collect them, there is a website about them, a flickr group devoted to them and others who make things from them, like Myf and like Love Teenie who makes those cute mini envelopes pictured above.
Maybe you too, might find yourself eagerly waiting for the bills to arrive!
