Easy peasy envelope mini album

Happy wednesday crafters (:o)

I'm going on a mini cruise to Oslo from friday till sunday and i've created an envelope mini album which also fit's the actual challenge at Country View Challenges - Paper Chase

You can make whatever you would like to as long as your project  has a strong theme of paper

I've created an envelope mini album to catch the memories of the upcoming mini cruise. This cruise is a prize i won with my team at work, sponsored by our employer. I guess we'll be 120 people at all at this cruise. We are leaving Kiel friday 14.00 pm and arrive Oslo saturday 10.00 am. A bus is waiting for an excursion round Oslo and we are visiting a museum. Leaving Oslo on saturday at 14.00 pm and arriving Kiel on sunday at 10.00 am.
Really a short trip and most time we spend on board relaxing.
What's more relaxing than filling a mini mini album with pictures, i can print out directly (:o)

A little step by step about the construction of the mini

I used 6 office envelopes B6 size ( 17,6 cm x 12,5 cm )

There is no glue needed at the first steps

I simply open the envelopes and layer two of them at the folding lines of the flap onto each other. Stack the nex two on top and so on....with all six envelopes

I just eyeballed the middle and made three holes....

...and sewed them together like i simply signature

I used Distress Ink Vintage Photo around the edges

Now you have to decide where you want to have some openings for tags or photo mats and cut the envelope open

Glue your paper to the envelopes

You can watch the easy construction on YouTube by artsongandsoul

I'm going to upload pictures after the cruise to my Facebook page. If you are interested, meet me there (:o)

Thanks for reading and your appreciated comments
Ship ahoy!
