The Wedding Keepsake Envelobum & Tutorial

Good evening friends,

it took forever today to upload this tutorial so i am posting in the middle of the night, apologies for that!

I created the Envelobum in a pastel pink tone with fresh fig and sweet sugarplum accents and think its great as a wedding keepsake album or a nice gift for a Barbie fan!

I will post the measurements on here tomorrow morning again but for tonight i just leave it like this because its really late now and i need to get into bed!

Please enjoy the tutorial here:

.So here is what you need for this Envelobum:

You need 3 pieces of card stock, 1 is cut to 11 1/2" x 11 1/2", the other 2 are cut to 11" x  11".
You now need to use your envelope punch board and start at the 4 7/8" score mark, where you punch and score. You will need to extend your score line manually with the help of a ruler as the punch board is smaller than your card stock.
So you start all 3 envelopes at the 4 7/8" score mark, then align your score line with the point bit of your envelope punch board on the next side and score and punch again. keep rotating your card stock until all 4 sides of your envelopes are done.

For the small triangles of DSP, cut  4 pieces of DSP to 4 1/2" square, cut diagonally so you end up with 8 pieces.
For the large triangles of DSP, cut 2 pieces of DSP to 5 3/4" square, cut diagonally so you end up with 4 pieces.

For the main 3 pockets, cut your DSP 3 x  to 8 3/4" x 3"and score at 1/2" on three sides to form the flaps for the pocket.
For the tag holder strips, cut your DSP to 8 x 1 3/4" x 7" and 4 x to 2" x 7" and create the holders as explained in the video.
For your tags to slide in the holders, cut 2 pieces of white card  stock to  5 " square, cut diagonally to get 4 triangles.
For the smaller tags cut 4 pieces of white card stock to 4 " square and cut diagonally to get 8 triangles.

For the center pieces of your inner envelopes, cut your DSP 3 x to 7 3/4" x 6", for the outside cut it 3 x to 7 7/8" x 6 1/8".

Lastly, cut 1 piece of whote card stock to 4 1/2" x 4 1/2", cut diagonally, ink it as seen and glue in to the center envelope large flaps, then die cut the oval shape from DSP and layer that with dimensionals on top to be your decoration of the center envelope.

Thanks for dropping by and have a good night!
