Hello, Diana here to show you two accordion books made with envelopes, when I saw this project I thought it was such a cool way of holding keepsakes, I’ll post a link with the instructions at the end of this post.
Ever since I was a kid I have liked to send and receive mail, and when ever I received a letter in an Air Mail envelope I knew it was from my grandmother, to date when she writes she uses the same type of envelope. I am a Fan of the Air Mail design, mostly because they remind me of her. For that reason I made my first accordion book using that type of envelopes, it will be a nice place to keep her letters.
This is the front part of the envelopes, I decorated a piece of white cardstock using Pink Paislee punch out die cut shapes and flip notes from there 365 Degrees collection
I cut a small piece of paper and punched out a nice border, added some ribbon, brads, gems and butterflies. And as a final decoration, a few of my favorite photos of her from the trip we took for her 90th birthday.
For the Cover I used a Doily, and grouped a few embellishments to give it a trinket look, assorted fonts, more gems and a red ribbon to tie it all together.
My second accordion book is made out of Craft Envelopes; I left the decoration simple using only a Jillibean Journaling Circle and a Sticker to write down the contents.
This book will hold Ticket stubs, Etsy business cards and other miscellaneous stuff.
This is a very fun and easy project; decorated or barely decorated they make cute books to hold all kind of memorabilia.
As always I hope I was able to bring some inspiration to your day, till next week.
