Envelope Scrapbook project

Posted by on September 4, 2011 in Scrapbook | 1 comment

I saw a wonderful demonstration by Dawn Olchefske for these really cute scrabooks made with our envelopes. You can see hers at http://dostamping.typepad.com/dostamping_with_dawn/2009/04/envelope-scrapbook-good-morning-sunshine-dsp.html. I finally got time to make one using 8 medium Whisper White Envelopes and the Timeless Portrait Designer Series Paper and came up with this:

This is the cover which is made with scrap chipboard (the backing from our Designer Series Papers) and covered with DSP (it’s kinda wrapped so the paper folds over the edges and you have a clean look on the inside too).

These are pages 1, 2 and 3. The little tabs pull out cardstock from the open end of the envelopes. I sealed shut every other envelope and just left 4 open ones.

These are pages 4, 5 and 6

These are pages 7 and 8

Here’s what it looks like opened all the way. (You can see why I alternated the open envelopes so when it’s displayed like this, the tabs don’t get in the way)

This is the back side (this pic was taken before I embellished the front cover)
