Our Private Zoo
Hey, there! It’s Robin Redd (a.k.a. RockinReddRobin!)
in which Sin City Stamps is teaming up with this month.
I made 12 envelopes using 12 different sheets of paper, each one representing each month of the year.
I made an accordion fold 6” in height, the same length of the envelope, by 12” from a piece of cardstock. I scored a line every ½” and fan folded the paper.
I adhered the bottom, front of each envelope to the same side of the fan fold
until all folds were filled with envelopes.
I made a front and back cover by covering a piece of chipboard, ¼” larger than the envelopes.
I taped a long piece of ribbon into the cover. This will help bind the book and keep it closed.
I adhered the covers onto the outermost piece of the fan fold.
Here is the binding, showing the fan folded paper and the ribbon.
I stamped, “Our Private Zoo” from the Wildlife stamp set, onto the front of the book.
I will keep pictures of my cat and many dogs in here.
I folded back the top of the envelope. Since the paper I used was double sided,
I wanted to be able to see both the outside and the inside of the envelope.
I will slip 4 x 6 pictures and/or scrapbook pages into the envelopes.
I hope I have inspired you to create something today.
Until next time…
