Mini album

Had a talented SU friend show me this great little mini album so I just had to duplicate it. It is actually what I had my club make last month.
I could not find envelopes small enough, so I just bought bigger envie's and cut them down to fit. To make this you will need...
1 piece of solid cardstock 4.5x12 inches long scored at 3 1/4, 6.5, 10, and 10 1/4.
3 pieces of sold cardstock (different color) 3x3.5
3 envelopes not quite 3 x 4 1/4
3 Pattern papers 2.5 x 4 1/2
1 strip of pattern paper 1 1/4 x 7 3/4 and score is at 2 1/4 and 5 3/4 and 6

You can see how I put this together. First I stamped the cardstock. Then I stamped the envelopes. I layered the envelopes on the 3x3.5 piece of cardstock by folding the cardstock up one inch onto the envelope. I attached the envelope only to the one inch of cardstock then attached the rest of the 3x3.5 cardstock to the large cardstock piece in between one of the scored rectangles.

Now, if that was not as clear as mud....
just attach the other three envy's the same way....attach your strip and if you want, a smaller saying to the front of the strip as I have done. Throw your pieces of pattern paper in the envies and now you are done. You can use them to display pictures, journaling...hold coupons..whatever.

Please email if you have any questions. Enjoy your day!

This looks like a fun project to try out. Nice pictures and description too! I've been working on reorganizing my office and haven't been doing much creating. I'm going to add you to my blogs...just haven't done so yet. I left you a comment on my blog a while back in reply to you asking about adding my blog to your links. Go for it!

Looks like you've been busy!
