Zakka Life...She makes them from recycled envelopes and uses them for little love notes or filling with treats. I decided it could be a great base for a mini album for Valentines Day!
I used DCWV papers, a Bazzill flower with a punched flower and a ribbon flower center. The punches on the cover were Martha Stewart. The mini flowers are from Prima, I used Glimmer Mist to color them. I used Tim Holtz distressing inks. The ribbons and the heart charm, I have no idea where they came from, they were in my stash. The pearls are from Queen and Co.
I used brochure envelopes, which gave me two hearts per envelope. I sealed the envelopes, free handed the heart shape and started cutting. I made 6 hearts for this album, using three envelopes. I inked all the edges. I made a second heart, a bit smaller, which served as a template for the cover papers and the tags that I put in the pockets. I made 6 of them. The overall size of this mini is about 5" tall by 5 1/2" wide.
