I cut my paper to 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 and made my envelopes. I will post a video explaining this in more detail below. I cut 8 envelopes. I stuck them together by sticking the flap of one envelope into another envelope and so on.
I cut some kraft cardstock and some patterned paper to add the pages of my book. This is a great project to use up some of your scraps of some of the 6x6 paper pads you’ve been stocking up on.
I used My Mind’s Eye paper and alternated between a chevron print and polka dots. Here is a look at the inside pages.
Here is a look at the book from the outside.
I know I’ve done a horrible job of explaining this, so here is a video that will hopefully make it easier for you to understand.

I have had this cute cuddly koala Marci stamp from La La Land Crafts for a while and I decided it was finally time to ink it up. Koalas were my favorite animal as a child and I think this image is adorable. I recently got a new 6 x 6 My Mind’s Eye pad from Kim and thought this image would go great with it. I love how soft the colors in this pad are. The pad is called lavender, but there’s actually no lavender it’s pinks, blues, and yellows.
I colored Marci with my copic markers to match the colors in the papers. I love chevron right now, so I had to make that the background. I picked a few more patterns to add and then finished the card off with one of my favorite Cutters Creek branded flowers.
