Micro Mini Envelope/Notecard "Faith Book".....3.25x3.25 Album

Okay....this was such a cute lil mini Notecard album or scrapbook.   If that is what you want to make of it...I decided to make mine a "Faith Book" filled with Bible verses and "Words" to Live By....plus a few blank tags for notes or your own personal sentiments........

I started with.......a 3.25x3.25 Mini Note card/envelopes...(The ones I used  are by DCWV.......I think I picked them up at  an after xmas clearance sale......a box of 50 envelopes and cards.....for relatively nothing...maybe .35/.40. per box)...I did watch a Youtube video...and came up with this idea... my  book is a little different from the video(Okay...maybe a lot...hehe....)........but....Almost the same concept .....Check it out here ......And Thanks Joann for the video....Hope you all have fun with this one....I did.......(smile)......TFL


And this is what I made .........a "Faith Book".....






Instructions

1.   fold the flap of the envelope inward and adhere printed paper to the inside of the envelope...

2.  trace the opening of the envelope ...the patterned paper is still  the shape of the envelope.

3.   glue two sides of the note cards together and make inserts for both the envelopes and the notecards....

 4.  Decorate each  notecard and envelope ( I used HOTP Heritage Patterned Paper and very little embellies( flower and a ribbon)) and punched one hole in each. (punch hole the same place on each card and envelope) 

5.  Use a Metal ring (I used 1 or 1.5"- I think......) to hold the pages together.....

6.  Place ribbon , twine, fiber, jewelry, beads from the metal ring.....

7.  The envelopes are loaded from the sides ....the notecards from the top.... use a circle punch to make tabs for the inserts....( I just cut the circles and adhered them to the inserts....)

8."Faith Book" , bible verses, etc.-computer generated.
