I make a lot of my Christmas presents, and since Boyfriend's birthday is a week before Christmas, I often have to come up with a lot of ideas quickly. So where do you go? Craftster!

I saw this awesome envelope book by shanaelle (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=361417.0) and loved it.

So I made something similar:


shanaelle cleverly altered her cover to allow for expansion when things go into the envelopes, but I opted for a simpler ribbon to tie the book closed


end pages


notepaper in front...


envelopes in back!

In the first envelope, I put a letter, and then I put a coupon in each of the others. They're really simple, nothing fancy. [coupons are fun; you can do whatever you want! tame things like this one or some naughty ones... Wink]

Thanks for looking, C&C welcome and encouraged (:

Yes, I agree with hgddm - I love the envelopes you used too.  Of course, this would be a future project for me - no boyfriend, atm.  Smiley

Cheers lads (:

They're just air mail envelopes; I think I found them a while back at a pharmacy. I wish I'd taken a photo of the stitching.... For the notepaper, I did coptic stitching, but the envelopes were a bit different. Maybe I'll do it again sometime; an envelope book for me!

I love the colour that the enveplopes give to the book. It just makes it stand out so much more.
