I have added a Bonus Christmas Episode to show you an Advent Envelope Book I made my daughter.
I started by making the cover using the chipboard paper that comes in Paper Packs and cutting it down to size, a little larger than my envelopes. I covered it using the new K & Company paper and die-cuts. I did the same for the back of the book.
I then took 25 large money envelopes, that I found at an Office Supply store. I covered the front of each with paper and numbers. The number were from a Making Memories sheet of paper.
I was going to use my hole punch to cut the holes at the top of each envelope, but the papers were too thick. So I used scissors to cut the half circle at the top of each envelope.
I then used my Bind-It-All to bind the book together.
I made tags using my Quickutz Cookie Cutters, punched a hole in top and put different colours of ribbons through the holes. I put each tag into an envelope and put the ribbon through the circle at the top of each envelope.
And now it is time to fill the book. I have gathered tattoos, stickers, gum, and charms, as well, I am going to put little notes on some tags that will co-ordinate with a larger gift that couldn’t fit in the book.
Gemma is very excited about the book and I can’t wait until December 1st when she can start opening it!
