In today’s Galentines tutorial I am sharing with you one of my favorite DIY mini gift albums: a book created entirely out of envelopes, washi tape, and patterned paper.
It is absolutely perfect for making and sending to a friend. You can fill it
You can personalize a book for each of your friends. Fill it up with tags, paper bits, journaling cards, stickers, and whatever else your lady friends might appreciate.
- 4-8 Envelopes of the same size
- Patterned paper
- Wide washi tape
- Standard washi tape
- Tape runner/your favorite paper adhesive
- Small binder clip
- Embellishments + fun things to add inside the envelopes
This is a video tutorial. The most important part is the first ten minutes where I show you how to make the book. Once you learn this technique you can replicate it again and again. It’s the same steps and you can use all sorts of different types and styles of envelopes. This is one of the most economical scrapbook gift albums. It’s also one of the most thoughtful gift albums at the exact same time.
The best thing about this project is that you can now decorate, embellish, and fill it up.
As soon as you’ve got the basic envelope binding technique down, the sky is really the limit. You can use these books to send doubles of photos. It’s also a great place for little notes that you write. As well as anything else that makes you think of your best lady and smile.
It’s also really easy to make a couple of these books at the same time. So grab a box of envelopes and make them for all of your friends. It’s a great way to bust through that stash of patterned paper as well.
These books are an amazing way to say I love you to a friend. Happy Galentines festival!
