"Miss You" Envelope Book

This is a little project that I sent to my husband while he was away on his last business trip. The finished book measures 3" x 4.75".

The front features a string and grommet closure. The back has faux stitching detail and a sentiment printed on a transparency film and attached with eyelets. I also inked the edges to give it an aged look.

The flap opens to reveal five pockets containing tags with "Missing You" sentiments - also printed on transparency film and attached with eyelets.

I got the instructions for this project from one of the Weekly Webisodes on the Paper Wishes website. You can find the webisode for this project here and the instructions here.

This is another (more feminine) version that I designed. This one features a hook-and-eye closure and a ribbon accent. I sanded the edges for a worn look. I also added some faux stitching on the back, this time with white "thread."

Thanks for looking!
