Envelope MemoryDex by Amber Mitchell

Hello crafty friends! Amber Mitchell here on Paige's blog today to share this fun handmade MemoryDex mini album I created using Bloom Street and several of Paige's envelope cut files.
When it comes to making a MemoryDex mini album, envelopes are a great starting point. Not only do they come with built in storage for photos and memories, they also have plenty of room on the outside for embellishing!

I used the following envelope cut files by Paige to create six individual envelopes for my mini album: Envelope 1, Envelope 2, Envelope 3, Envelope 4, Envelope 5, and Envelope 6. I love the look and texture that the different styled envelopes bring to the project.

Before cutting the envelopes, I first resized them all individually so that they would measure 4 inches in width when assembled. Once cut, I stitched along the outer edges of each envelope using my sewing machine. Next, I used my Cricut to create and cut MemoryDex card slots that I then adhered to the back of each envelope. If you don't have a cutting machine, another option would be to use a MemoryDex punch or a simple hole punch to create the openings.

These envelopes measure 4 inches in width which is just under the standard size of a MemoryDex card. As such, they'll fit perfectly in any storage box you have. I opted to make my own using Paper 22 from Bloom Street and some striped paper straws.

Once my envelope cards and box were assembled, it was time to embellish this cute mini! I used a mix of embellishments from both the physical and Bloom Street Digital Collection. I used the Print and Cut feature on my Cricut to create lots of floral and butterfly die cuts. I also used some stickers from the Cardstock Stickers and 4-Page Sticker Book to layer amidst the flowers.

With the outside of the envelopes embellished, I then took some larger journaling pieces from the Ephemera Die Cuts to use for documenting. I lightly embellished these and added one or two to each envelope.

To add a bit of flair to the storage box itself, I used three of Paige's Rolled Flower cut files to create a couple dozen small flowers. I then glued these to the edge of the box to tie everything together!

After adding the envelope cards to the box, my mini album is complete and ready for memories! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! If you'd like to see more of this project, you can find a project share video here:
