How to Create an Envelope Page
A book for altering
Adhesive: Glue stick or PVA Glue
Step 1: Choose an envelope

Step 4: Add items into your envelope
Add any of the following: mini pieces of art, notes to yourself, notes from loved ones, photos, inspirational quotes, stickers, collage pieces to save for other pages ...
