From brown envelopes to a nice vase -- we used to also do this in the 60's using masking tape torn to make ragged edges, wrap it around a wine bottle until covered, then take brown shoe polish (cream) and rub it all over.  Looks like old leather.  Add a candle to the top and voila!

From brown envelopes to a nice vase - can try it also with maps, newspaper, magazines/catalogs?

In South Africa, advertising briefs are attached brown envelopes called job bags.  Seeing that we weren’t receiving many briefs, we decided to intercept existing above-the-line briefs that were in the system. But instead of answering the briefs in a traditional manner, we used the physical brief as our canvas. Each design incorporated a concept relevant to the specific brand message. We then sent the clients' briefs back to them, proving that we could do amazing things with their briefs.
