How to Make a Mini Coin Envelope Book

It's time for Club Scrap's December Shades of Winter Blog Hop! Check out the full line-up at the CS Blog, and if you just left Pam's blog, you're good at following the route.

I was inspired by a project posted at Free Range Bookbinding. It didn't have a tutorial, but after a bit of trial and error, I figured it out.

These are tiny booklets made from 3x4.5" coin envelopes and materials from the Shades of Winter collection.

Rather than explain how to make one with written instructions, I chose to film a short tutorial. Enjoy!

Here is a supply list:

  • 3x4.5" Coin Envelope
  • 18" Ribbon Closure
  • 10" Waxed Linen Thread and Needle
  • 2-1/8x2-7/8 Outside Back Cover Paper
  • 2x2.75" Outside Front Cover Paper
  • (2) 2-1/8x2-3/4" Pocket Inserts
  • (3) 2-7/8x4" Inside Pages, Folded
  • 2-3/8x3" Pocket Flap Cover, Folded Vertically
  • Corner Chomper
  • Piercing Cradle
  • Awl
  • Bone Folder
  • Envelope Punch Board

Your next stop on the Shades of Winter hop is with Roni.

I wish you an efficiently crafty new year!
