i love you | DIY Envelope Mini-Album

a secret hiding place



Letter writing is one of my favorite ways to document. I write J love notes all the time, and then I make him things to hold those notes. This DIY Envelope mini-album is one of those things.

Date Made:

August 2013


Long envelopes are bound together with wide neon pink washi tape. I kept it simple with some stamping in neon pink and black ink.

Notable Parts:

Envelope books are simple to make and a great gift to give to a friend who might need a little pick me up.

This technique can easily be translated to any envelopes (just bind along the side opposite the opening). If your feeling a little more adventurous, make your own envelopes out of patterned paper.

Materials Used:

hot pink washi tape, maya road envelopes, i love you stamp, kelly purkey tag stamp, pink ink, black ink, microperm pen.
