Altered Envelope Chunky Swap

These pieces are made from legal sized envelopes that have been cut in half and arted (is arted a word?). They will be made into a chunky book when I'm finished swapping them out. I'm making 8; I'll keep 2 for myself. The theme is wings and each front and back must have a wing, text and a number on it.

Front with insert enclosed

Back with insert enclosed (I've added to it since this scan)
Front with insert removed

Envelope #2...front; back; front with insert removed...

Easy to make but VERY, VERY time consuming. I cut all the envelopes and covered them the first day. Gave myself the canvas in which to work on. I think it works better this way.
