Mini Album Monday #44- Single Envelope Christmas Album

Today's mini album is so simple, no one can use the excuse
that they can't make it because they don't scrapbook.
It's just a single envelope with a few tags.
I'll be handing out the tags on Christmas Day so my family and I can write down
what we love about Christmas. I'll place photos on the larger pattern papers in the back.
To make this, you'll need:
one 5 1/4"x 7 1/4" envelope
3-5 small pieces of pattern paper (measurements below)
4 shipping tags
stickers in your theme
paper trimmer
If you want to use a different size envelope, just adjust the papers to fit.
If you have more than four family members, use more tags.

First, tuck the flap into the envelope.
Then trim a piece of pattern paper to 3 1/4"x 7 1/4" and adhere it to the front of the envelope.

Trim a second piece of pattern paper to 5"x 7" and adhere it to the back of the envelope.

Place two sticker strips or strips of pattern paper vertically about 1/2" fron the left edge.
Then add a sticker for the title.

Optional: add a small flower to your title sticker.

Trim three pieces of pattern paper to 4"x 6" and place these in the envelope.
These will be photo mats for your photos.
Then place the shipping tags in front of the photo mats.
If you like, add a little embellishment to the top of each tag.
The tags are for journaling- just hand one out to each member of your family
and ask them to write about their favorite Christmas memory.
Then add a few photos to the mats, and you'll have a darling memento
from your Christmas celebration!
You can add either current photos or photos from Christmases past.
This can sit out as a mini album or you could add it to a scrapbook layout.
Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless.
Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless His holy name!
Psalm 103:1
