What materials did you use?
Cardboard, small envelopes, ribbon, double-sided tape, and glue.
What are you most proud of?
How well they turned out.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Do you cut a V in each envelope ?
Yes, you do. I made a cardboard template with a V in it, and used that to make uniform cuts in the envelopes.
how can i make this. Do you have a tutorial
I added a picture with the pattern and instructions printed on it. You can choose to make the spine larger or smaller (I show it as 1"x4". If you do, just be sure to adjust the size of your decorative papers to fit. I didn't give a length for the ribbon. I suggest using a little more than you think you'll need to tie the case shut. You can always trim a little off later.
this is really nice. I just tried making it, but was thinking it was bigger. I think I will try to make it bigger to fit my cards. I like the idea though. Thank you
Great. I'm glad you tried it. You could try it with a larger size envelope. It should be easy enough to adapt the pattern.
This is awesome! Thank you for generously sharing the instructions.
