Mini Album
This is a great project for a quick gift, as the construction is rather simple: 
  1. Trim matte board to create two 6-1/4 x 6-1/2" covers. 
  2. Grab four 12x12 papers from the Take Wing Lite paper pack and trim to 6x6". 
  3. Trim two 6x9" business envelopes to 6x6", trimming away the sealed side. (This creates a fun pocket for ephemera.)
  4. Punch two 1/8" holes in each matte board cover, and all of the 6x6" pages, to accommodate binder rings for the spine. 
  5. Decorate as desired.

A 6x9" Envelope page. Great for storing fun memorabilia.
Decorate inside pages with stamping and other techniques.
Decorate cover with fibers and printed paper.
