How to make a Scrapbook Page instructions

Cutting guide..
You will need 3 Sealed down DL envelopes.
Cut 2cm off this first one this is the base of each book page (A)
Cut one at 10cm (C)
Keep the 12cm bit as this will be used later.
Cut  one at 7cm (D)
The 15cm piece is used as (B)

Glue or tape section  (C) on to (B) with both the closed ends at the bottom.
Section( A) has section (D) glued on top to make the other side.
Take the section (B, C) and turn it over so the sealed end is still at the bottom.
You now take the 12cm section find the open end and place it so that it
is on the right lined up with the top right hand side.
Check before you glue it that the open side  is the one that lined up.

You now glue the (A,D) on top of this as well, making sure you aline
the bottoms of (B,C) and (A,D)
You will now have your enevlope mini page.
Repeat this for as many pages as you want to decorate.

To Decorate you need paper of this size for each section.
(A) 10.5 by 15cm
(D) 10.5 cm by 6.5cm

This is the back view.
To decorate this you need:
(C) 10.5 by 9.5 cm
(B) 10.5 by 6.5cm
Unmarkered at the top 10.5cm by 6.5cm

When you add the paper to (D, B, Unmarked) it will sit just inside the pockets,
 to give a neat finish.

Long Tall Envelope DL Mini Scrapbook

Ok This is my latest mini book made from envelopes. I'm going to show the photo's first then explain just how you can make one of your own, it really is easy and once you have made one page you can add as many as you like, this one has 10 pages and is made from 15 envelopes the DL ones are the kind you need and if you can find ones with white inserts all the better as that way nothing shows .

The Princess tag will be the front page and the lamb with birth details the
back of my book, I will be adding some rings and ribbon latter, but I forgot to collect them from my stash.

If you look on the left hand side you have a long panel with small pocket at the bottom.

On the right you have 3 pockets with an even space between. So lots of room to add tags and stuff. You can't see it but there is also a pocket on the side, by the star. This will hold a tag that is 11cm by 10.5 cm and also you can add one to the top of the envelope just above the lamb and that would be 10.5cm by 21cm.
