Welcome to yet another scrappy edition of The Cherry On Top.
It's National Scrapbooking Weekend and we are celebrating. Any excuse, right?! On a previous blog we gave a tutorial as well as a free template for a mini album with pockets. Today, we are giving you something to put the mini album or any other paper craft you might have, in. Click on the image below to get to the tutorial.
Here's the circular type envelop were focusing on today. We got another envelope template will share with you later. This one is basic, simple and ready in about one minute. Ya gotta love that!
Download the template by clicking on the above preview. You can either print out the blank template and trace around it, use your trusty silhouette or other cutting machine or you could open the template in a software program, choose a paper background and clip it on to the template, then print and cut. The choice is yours.
I used a pair of scissors and chose to cut before the black lining, but you could choose to leave the black line around your envelop.
The folds are self explanatory and so easy to make.
Another option is to ink around your envelop. You can make a quick sweep across the edges so you have just a hint of ink or you could do like we did here and go in a bit deeper either by sweeping your ink pad or by dabbing. I prefer dabbing my ink pad. You won't have the chance of smearing and it appears a bit more subtle.
Here's your envelop. Ready in seconds. You can always shrink or blow up to the template size you want.
This is the envelop I made to coordinate with my niece's mini album.
You may choose how you want to close the envelop. I used some simple ribbon, tied in a bow with the excess and attached a tiny, silver charm. Other options are gluing, double sided tape or a tiny glue dot.
Here's a look at a more complex envelop we'll do next time.
And here are a couple of other projects for you to check out. Click on the image to take you to that project.
