Envelope Album Tutorial:

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.
And that’s it! You now have a simple album or booklet that has pockets in each page too! You can fill it up with stamps, stickers or anything else you want.
Use any size of envelopes you have at home to assemble this album/book. All you need really are envelopes and adhesive. Decorate the cover of the album in what ever way you want and then use the page pockets to store cute items like stamps, notes, post its or stickers! Great craft for kids and mom for a fun crafternoon.
