Envelope Mini Album with Expanding Pages Binding

Posted by Amy Helms on

I love this envelope mini so much, I can think of so many ways to use it.  Each page is a pocket to itself with a flap cover and plenty of room for photos, memories, recipes and more.  I used it to make a recipe album but you could use it as a "year in the life" album, a anniversary album where each page is a year of marriage.  So many way so to use it.

Did I mention it was so easy to make?  So easy, and you could make pages for your book now and add to it for years to come.

Enough chat!  Let's make an album!

To make the album you will need:

5- #10 Envelopes, they measure 4.13x9.5 inches.

2- chipboard pieces that measure 2 3/4 by 4 1/8

20- cardstock pieces that measure 6 1/2 x 3 7/8

I bought my envelopes at Walmart but you could surely find them at any office supply location.  The stamp set I used to make the tabs is called What's Cooking and can be found here.

This is the paper I used on my original recipe envelope mini.  You can get it from

I show you in the video tutorial a step by step for putting it together.  I hope you are able to use the video to make some really fun albums!  When you do please share them with us over on our Facebook group call Maymay Made It and So Did I.

Have fun paper crafting!

  • I just made a three envelope booklet for my sister for mother’s day and put sentiments relating to motherhood on all the pages. Just three envelopes gave me room for 15 sentiments!! I know she’ll love it. Thank you for the directions.
