You will need:
2 x DL Envelopes (must not be the 'self seal' type - you need the old fashoned flap)
Plain/Pattened Paper of your choice
Enbelishments of your choice
Eyelets, Brads or Ribbon (to create the binding)
Plenty of ideas/imagination
The following Pictures show each step to create the Envelope Book:
|Score your envelope at the following measurements from the left edge: 9cm, 11cm (the centre) & 13cm|
|Fold the envelop in half along the centre line - with the envelope flap inwards|
|Now fold along the other 2 score lines in the oposite direction|
The 2cm center area will be used hold your book together.
|Repeat with a 2nd envelope and place one inside the other, this will give you the 'book' with a Front & Back and 6 inner pages (4 with pockets).|
|Cut plain or pattened paper to 8cm x 10xm to fit onto the Front, Back and inner pages - when you have a pocket add the paper behind the flap.|
Add your embelishments to the Envelope Book.
|Once decorated you can then secure the pages together, how you do this is up to you but here are some suggestions...|
2 or 3 Eyelets
2 or 3 Brads
I would like to thank Sue Hartop for showing me how to create this Envelope Book.
