Hey everybody! Happy Thursday to you – I hope you’re having an awesome week! I’m thrilled to be back on the Printable Cuttable Creatables blog today with another awesome DT inspiration project! If you know me, you know I love to make mini albums and gift them so others can document those wonderful memories! My project today is a mini album featuring the Busy Bee Digital Paper Pack and Sweet Sunflowers SVG Cut File made with envelopes. Yep, you read that right – an envelope mini album! So fun!
I started by making the mini album base from four A2 size heavyweight kraft envelopes. You can use as many envelopes as you want and any size you want. If you’ve never made one, here’s how to do it: Lay the first envelope down in front of you with the flap up and pointed toward the right. Bend the flaps on the remaining three envelopes backwards and set two of them aside. With the flap now up, insert the flap of the second envelope into the opening of the first envelope, then fold the envelope toward the left. Repeat the process with the third and fourth envelopes. You’ll be left with the flap from the first envelope pointing toward the right. Score it (measuring the thickness of the rest of the envelopes), fold it over, and adhere it.
Now, to decorate it… I printed eight different patterns from the Busy Bee Digital Paper Pack, trimmed the panels and adhered one to each side of the pages. I created six sunflower elements from the Sweet Sunflowers SVG Cut File using the print and cut function on my Scan N Cut, which I used to embellish each page along with some other elements. There are round, oval, rectangular, flip-up, flip-out, and tag elements with plenty of room for photos and journaling. And there’s a little bit of bling on each page. I decorated the front and back with curved die cut panels, and added washi tape, a brad, some bling, and die cut alphas to the front, which completed the project.
