Here’s a creative and cute way for the new mom to hold all the cards and gift tags she receives at her baby shower. Make a series of envelopes from patterned paper and fashion them together into a keepsake album! It’s easy to make! Here’s how…
This project uses one pack of the “Sweet Princess” paper collection (12″ x 12″ or 30,5 cm x 30,5 cm) by Craft O’Clock. I created envelopes with the 6 sheets using the envelope punch board from We R Memory Keepers.
I added an additional score line of 1/8″ on the bottom flap of each envelope and 1/4″ on the top flap of each envelope. This extra allowance helps the album pages hold more keepsake items, and also helps the pages lay flatter and turn better.
Watch the full video tutorial to see how I assembled the envelopes together to make open-pocket pages. Then, watch how I wrap the last open flap around the “booklet” of pages and adhered them to the cover.
I used a double-stacked cereal box for the cover and spine. And I used one large-sized cover and one medium-sized cover by Craft O’Clock. Cover #4 is a lovely pink pattern with a small white polka dot (a pattern that also shows up in the “Sweet Princess” paper collection, as well).
