I order prints online through Shutterfly. When they arrive, they come in sturdy pocket envelopes that leave me reluctant to throw them away. I’ve been saving them and decided to make a book, an album with these envelopes.
Since I’ve been inspired to do make my own books and albums using a variety of craft papers I have at home, this project was relatively straight forward to do. I stacked my envelopes on top of each other and measured their combined width. Then, using heavy card stock, I decided the size of the spine and cut that out along with the covers.
I used pretty patterned paper (the same as V’s bird shelf) and lined the cover. I used the hidden hinge binding system for attaching the envelopes. This is a picture I found online. I used beige-colored paper.
V uses this envelope album for storing her little projects or extra scraps for future projects.
