Step One: Take your six envelopes and cut the flap off of each one.  Then, punch two holes about an inch and a half from the bottom of the envelopes.  After you punch the first envelope, use it as a template to punch the remaining five.  Using the hemp twine, tie all the envelopes together.  You can make a bow or a not and let the twine hang, it’s up to you.

**Pro tip:  You can use the flap as a template to cut a half moon shape or triangle shape out of the opening of your envelope to give it some unique flare.

Step Two:  Using the envelope as a guide, trim the cardstock to ensure that it can slide easily inside the envelope.  Trim six pieces of cardstock that way. Set them aside.

Step Three:  Decorate the front of your album with ephemera, stickers, embellishments, stamps, ribbon, jewels etc.  We went for a romantic, junque aesthetic for our project.  This is an easy craft so, pick what you feel goes best with your theme.

Step Four: Decorate each piece of trimmed cardstock with your images, and more embellishments.  Then, slide each one into an envelope.

**Pro Tip:  To make this more personal, write a handwritten love note or saying on your project.
