Here are the supplies you'll need...
-envelopes (you can make your book however big or small you want. The one I'll be showing today uses 5 envelopes.)
The first thing you'll want to do is put glue on the flap of 4 out of the 5 envelopes...
...& glue them to the front side of each other. The flap of the first envelope will not be glued. It will become the front cover of your book.
After they're all glued you'll fold them, accordion style, back-n-forth to form a book.
Use some decorative scissors to cut the straight edge & make it a bit more interesting.
Open your book all the way & measure the very last envelope to find the center point on both sides.
Cut a small slice through the envelope, on each side, just large enough for your ribbon to slide through.
Here's a close-up view of each envelope in this book:
This one uses large 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" envelopes & it was made with only 3 envelopes. It's a kit to help you stay organized for a party. The first envelope holds the invitations/thank you notes, the second envelope holds address labels, & the 3rd holds pre-printed templates to keep track of RSVP's & your "Party To-Do Lists".
You can use whatever size or color of envelopes you want. This one was made using small 3 1/2" x 4 1/2" envelopes. It was created to keep track of memories. (Stay tuned on October 1st for Kara's Virtual Baby Shower & I'll show you what's inside!)
