Hi it’s Mindy here with Tutorial Tuesday. Today I want to show you how to make an envelope mini album using the We R Memory Keepers envelope punch board. The envelope punch board is great because it allows you to make envelopes of any size. I wanted my album to be about 3 inches by 3 inches. I made the envelope for a 3x3 card which is a little bit bigger than 3 x 3. There is a guide on the punch board that shows you how big to cut your paper and where to line it up to score for several different sized cards.
I cut my paper to 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 and made my envelopes. I will post a video explaining this in more detail below. I cut 8 envelopes. I stuck them together by sticking the flap of one envelope into another envelope and so on.
I cut some kraft cardstock and some patterned paper to add the pages of my book. This is a great project to use up some of your scraps or some of the 6x6 paper pads you’ve been stocking up on.
I used My Mind’s Eye paper and alternated between a chevron print and polka dots. Here is a look at the inside pages.
Here is a look at the book from the outside.
I know I’ve done a horrible job of explaining this, so here is a video that will hopefully make it easier for you to understand.
