Awhile back, Cat Hand made a journal from a white 9" X 12" Envelope using music sheets, napkins, and scrapbook paper. So, I thought I'd give it a try. I first must say, the first one I did was a disaster!!! I ended up throwing it away, because it turned out so bad. I mean really bad.But! I thought I'd give it one more try. Here is my version.
The inside front.
I used scrapbook paper for the inside liners and sketch book paper for the signature. I reinforced the inside by gluing a piece of cardstock to the inside of the envelope. This made the cover much sturdier.
The inside back cover.
I made my own envelope closure with the left over scrapbook paper and some brads and yellow bakers twine.
Now I have a secret compartment to keep all my finds and treasures.
