DIY Envelope with Map Inside

You can thank Karen at Garden Home and Party for finding this. She commented on yesterday's post about using maps for scrapbooking and photo corners. She said she thought there was a site that would print your location from Google Earth on an envelope template.
The Map Envelope [ mapenvelope.com ] website has a three step process: enter your address, print the map template using your home printer, and finally cut/fold and stamp for delivery. It's ridiculously simple and very cute. You could use better paper stock so you can't see the map through the other side, but otherwise it works like a charm, as you can see from our sample above.
This was posted on Apartment Therapy and so was the photo above. This is so cool!!!

Rosemary,
See what happens when I go on vacation where there were no computers? I almost missed this post, you are so kind to mention me...it was Google's great idea, but it is a fun one, right?
