Accessory Supplies

7” of wide grosgrain ribbon for handle. 12” of 1/8” Grosgrain for center pages.

Brads, Velcro adhesive circles, StampinDimensionals, SNAIL adhesive

Circles #2, Scallop Circles #2, Scallop Squares Duo, Blossom Party die-cuts


Lay the two 3 x 3 Envelopes down with the flaps facing up.

Adhesive the Whisper White cardstock to the flaps and fold on the score mark. It should look like a ‘W’ now when you stand it up.

Inside Pages

1. Layer the DSP to the cardstock for the pages. Use the 1 ¼” circle punch to punch a half circle in the center of both pages. This leaves an opening for you to see the scallop pages inside the envelopes. Attach page to the envelope being careful not to adhesive the opening closed. Attach the scored DSP to the center section.

2. Layer the DSP to the cardstock scallop pages and insert into the envelopes.

3. Stamp and embellish the scrapbook pages using desired Stampin’ Up! products.

Outside Pages

1. Adhesive the DSP to the outsides of the envelopes for the front and back cover. Hold the scallop circle up to the front cover and measure how much needs to be trimmed off. It is on the front only, it does not fold over and cover the back (it’s too big). Adhere DSP circle to the scallop and fold that piece over to the back. Use the rectangle punch to put 2 holes on the back/top side of the fold for handle. Insert ribbon and secure with Sticky Strip.

2. Die-cut the flower for the flap embellishment and layer on Scallop Circle. Attach the front with Sticky Strip.

3. Place Velcro adhesive circle under the flap and fold together sealing it nice and tight.

4. Add photos and enjoy!
