Envelope Mini Album: A Little Treat

Inspired by some YouTube videos and an article in my fave crafting magazine, I decided to try my hand at making a mini envelope album.

What is that? Well, an album made from envelopes! And of course, the plus side to this is that you can store all sorts of goodies in your mini as little treats.

You'll need a pack of envelopes (any size, but here I am using 4x9) and some hard board or chipboard for the front and back cover. 
You can make as many pockets/pages as you like but make sure you consider this when choosing your binder ring. I am using a medium sized ring and only four pages but after stuffing 'goodies' into the pockets, they're filled to the brim.

Journaling cards to write your personal messages.
Fill the pockets with little treats! I chose tea and hence, the tea party 'invite' on the cover but you can put anything in that isn't bulky. It will work great for gift cards and 'ang pow' money. It will be like an exciting surprise treasure hunt for your loved one!
