Yesterday, I made this little accordion envelope book as another take-home project for the store where I teach. When I brought the book home awhile back, I wasn't sure what I'd do with it. It was butter-colored and tied with a brown checkered ribbon, so paper choices would be somewhat limited.
In browsing through the store, I spotted the Junkitz Laguna Guy paper line. Green and teal with a light yellow base, the color and retro-look patterns really appealed to me, and it was a great match for the book. As it happens, the book is made by Junkitz, too.
So I set to work cutting photo cards and covering the front and back of each envelope with patterns from the paper line. I replaced the brown ribbon with an olive green one, added the verses of a poem about friendship to the front of the envelopes, and in no time at all, it was done.
Very easy and very fun. I kind of needed that yesterday.
