Envelope Challenge!

I have been slowly getting my scrapping mojo back, and a good challenge always helps me!  I was really interested to see this envelope challenge from Lessology.  I have to say, I got a lot of inspiration from folks who had already posted their creations, but I really wanted to make the envelopes the center of my project.  And, of course, continue my quest to use my stash!  Ultimately, I decided to use a bunch of junk mail envelopes - the kind with the plastic windows - as the base for a minialbum.  I also came across a heavy duty envelope that I had received some photos in and thought it would make and ideal case for the minialbum.

 I cut one end off each envelope and the envelopes with pp from Cosmo Cricket, preserving the windows.  I created a tag to fit into each envelope.  I added some canvas pennants from Maya Road as additional pages and created covers from felt.

I covered the large envelope with additional pp and used buttons and bakers twine to created a clasp.

Thanks to Lessology and Gauche Alchemy for the inspiration!

Have a great day!
