Easiest ever envelope mini album ....


todays project is inspired my my lovely friend Kay ...thank you Kay. Crafters have long been making mini albums from whatever they can get their hands on. One budget friendly way is to use envelopes. They are strong enough if you buy good quality ones and really quick and easy to use.

So here is mine using brown envelopes, kraft card and petal garden dip. I used little else to keep it as simple as possible. 

I do have a quick youTube video showing the album and giving a quick verbal explanation how to put the album together ... so grab a brew get comfy and watch the video.. all measurements are below ... happy Stamping xxxx Amanda


                                   


Measurements

I started with envelopes measuring 6 1/2 x 9" cut down to 7 3/4' ... scored at 1 1/2" this small part is your spine.

I matted 6 envelopes simply with 6 x 6" DSP no need to trim

The photo mats inside each pocket measure 6 1/4" square , you simply lay 6 x 6" paper front and back.

The front and back cover each measure 6 1/2 x 8" and again are scored at 1 1/2" .

Punch holes in the spine and tie together with ribbon.
