Envelope Tutorial

In my mini posted yesterday, I made an envelope to match the album itself instead of using the ones I had.

I keep a stash of these mini envelopes on hand in many styles.  I took pictures as I created the red and cream chevron pocket that holds the basic journaling for this mini.

 I  have these little graph paper envelopes that I picked up at a local store during the last shop hop.
 I carefully deconstructed it.
 Traced it onto the back of the paper I wanted to use and then scored it with a bone folder.
 Just to keep it interesting I used my fabric scissors to cut the edges.
And then glued it together.  Now I have a coordinating pocket.

  5. Very cool! Love the patterned paper!

  6. Love it. Great tip. Your project turned out just darling.

  7. LOVE THIS! I bought a few of those baggies online but I like your better- the paper is brighter and it will stand up to multiple uses- mine had ripped from the two times I took the journaling card out! LOVELY mini! Thanks for swinging by my blog today!
