TEXT Thursday - April 30th

I thought I would post a different kind of idea for making lines to journal on. In this layout that I did last year, I did some sewing around the photo and I figured stitching would also make a great place to journal. So, I wrote my journaling first, then sewed some lines underneath the writing.

Teaching Tuesday ~ April 28th

Good morning sisters. Today I have a quick little envelope mini book. I hope you like it.

Materials needed:
3 envelopes (mine are regular invitation envelopes 4.25x5.5, but you can use any size)

Take your first envelope and open the flap and glue it to the back of your second envelope. Now glue the second envelope's flap to the back of the 3rd envelope. Here are front and back views of how it should look:

Now, cut patterned paper for the back of your book (the side that doesn't have the pockets is the back) and adhere them to your book

Next you are going to cut patterned paper for the inside. I cut them a little smaller to leave room for my pockets. Make sure when you glue them down you don't glue over the pockets. You'll want to make inserts for them later

Next, you need to cut two triangle pieces for you the flap of your book. I just eyeballed this. Adhere them to your book

Now you need to make your inserts. You can see mine poking out of the pocket with a little ribbon tab. I also slipped my ribbon under the patterned paper of my book so I have a tie to hold it closed. You could also use magnets or just leave it opened.

Just embellish and you are done. I left mine pretty simple because I'm not sure what I'm going to use it for yet!

If you do this little project I'd love to see it.
