Envelope Mini Album

Hi, everyone! Today I have an Envelope Mini Album to share with you.

Resources I used to learn how to do this:

Envelope Page Tutorial by The Paper Boutique

Hidden Binding & Covers Tutorial by Ginger of My Sister's Scrapper

My Envelope Mini Album

Each page of the album has a card in the pocket that folds open and comes out of the pocket. I didn't take photos of every single page like I've done in the past. Please forgive me. :) But here are some photos that will give you the idea of the album style.

So here is the inside cover, a couple of photo mats in the pocket, and the card also in the pocket with the flap hanging over the backside of this page.

Here I have the card flipped open.

Thanks for visiting with me today. If you ever want to make a mini album that feels more like a book, GINGER is definitely your go-to gal for video tutorials.

  5. Great album! I love little projects like this - so much fun to create!

    Thanks for linking to Cut it Up for our Summertime Memories challenge! We love to see your work!


  6. Love your videos but I still can't figure out how to attach your pages to the hidden hinge etc. Can you help??

    1. I add adhesive to the hidden binding part that sticks up and then lay down the page on that. You can do this on both sides of that binding or just add a page on one side of it. I'm sorry I didn't explain that well. I think you can search YouTube videos for "how to adhere pages to hidden binding." But I haven't watched any of them.

  7. Gorgeous, and I love it!Thank you for sharing. I think, I will try to my my own mini album like this.
