#Roofline_Envelope Series Turns Houses Into Stationery

Posted: Updated:

"Flipping houses" just took on a whole new meaning thanks to Instagrammer Geof Newsum's Pinterest-perfect project.

Known as #roofline_envelope, the series was born after Newsum took a simple photo of the roof of a nearby building that, when flipped, looked like an envelope. Since that time, over 41 adorable homes (and counting) have managed to transform themselves into stationery through his quirky (but oh so genius) art project. And while the hashtag is rapidly expanding to the local Instagram community and beyond, Newsum is focusing on narrowing his own mission.

“I’ve been wanting to create a special series based on endangered historic homes in Phoenix," the Arizona resident explained on the Instagram blog. "I love the stories found in local architecture.”
