Total Time: 15 minutes

Divide your envelopes into two equal stacks. I used 6 envelopes, split into two stacks of 3 each. I found that 6 to 10 envelopes were a good number. Arrange the envelopes so that all of the flaps are nested together.

Apply your tape runner along the envelope flap. You can also dampen the strip of envelope glue that comes with the envelope. Repeat this to glue together each stack of 3 envelopes.

Join both stacks of envelopes to form a book, by inserting the flap of one stack into the other stacks envelope pocket. Take time to make sure you have all the edges aligned straight.

Finally, add more tape to the flap that will be left at the back of the book. Press firmly to secure. how-to-make-an-envelope-album
