I found this tutorial on Laura’s Crafty Life and HAD to try one of my own.

No, I don’t scrapbook but this was so cute, and looked easy, so I had to try.

I’ll start by saying that I cheated – I have packages of coordinating scrapbook paper from Papertrey Ink, so I didn’t have to colour coordinate, or match patterns or anything – it was all done for me (thank goodness, because I’m inept and putting patterns and colours together).

You’ll need 6 pieces of scrapbook paper cut to 8″ x 8″ (20.3cm x 20.3cm)

How to make an envelope scrapbook - easy paper crafting

Bring out your handy-dandy envelope maker (or open up an envelope you already have and trace the outline onto your scrapbook paper).  Cut, punch and score as indicated.

Envelope Scrapbook - 2

Seal three sides of the envelope with double sided tape or glue, but leave the top flap open.

Envelope Scrapbook - 3

Now you’re going to take one envelope, add some double-sided adhesive to the top flap, flip it over and insert that top flap into a second envelope.  Stick in place.

Envelope Scrapbook - 4

Fold over your second (in this case green) envelope and repeat with your third:  add double-sided adhesive, insert the pattern-side of a third envelope into the pocket section of the previous (green) one.

That’s it!

Continue on until you have all 6 envelopes intermingled and stuck together.

Then take the last hanging flap and seal it to the back of your scrapbook.

Envelope Scrapbook - 6

Embellish as you like.

Envelope Scrapbook - 9

Insert photographs, recipes, love letters – anything you want into each pocket.

Envelope Scrapbook - 10

This would make a great little brag book for Moms and Grandmas – large enough to house full-size photographs, but small enough to tuck into your purse!

So cute!
