Aimee's Ephemera Envelopes Tutorial

Hi everyone, it’s Aimee and today I have a step by step tutorial making these cute envelope pockets, using the “Practically Perfect” Kit!

I absolutely loved these 3 papers from the “Practically Perfect” Kit. Since the patterns are a little bit big for me {I personally like when a pattern is shrunk down when I scrapbook, just my personal preference} I found an alternative idea for me to use them.

I made these envelopes using the We R Memory Keepers, Envelope Punch Board to include in my project life type album.

I made 2 different sizes and 2 different styles. Both can be used the same way. As you can see, I punched holes in the one to attach directly to my album’s “d” Rings.

·      First, I cut my paper down to the correct size. Just follow the guide.

·      Here I have trimmed my paper to 9x8 to create a 4.25x6 pocket.

·      Open the punch board up so you have your scoring guidelines.

·      Flip your paper over and now REPEAT previous steps by trimming both the top and bottom of your paper, both the top and bottom should have a flap!

·      Adhere the flaps together, be sure to only put adhesive on the top flap, other wise what you put in your envelope will get stuck.

·      Viola you have a cute little envelope pouch!

Now I can store loose bits and pieces I have collected in these pockets inside my album. I could also use this envelope to send some snail mail. The Possibilities are endless, because you can create these envelopes at any size! you could even add them to a scrapbook layout!
