Envelope flipbook
Would you like to send something other than just a card? Then have a go at this DIY project and make an envelope flipbook! The great thing about an envelope flipbook is that more and more fun details are revealed as the envelope is opened. Simply make an envelope with our scoring board and decorate the inside with stickers, scrapbook paper, paperclips, mini envelopes, mini banners and fun pictures and messages. These products from our Love It collection make this project a joy to make, and definitely a joy to receive.

  • How to make an envelope. Envelope Flipbook - Step 1
    Step 1

    Take a sheet of Love It paper measuring 30.5x30.5cm. Make sure that the corner is at 11.7cm on the diagonal ruler and make a score line downwards starting from the notch in the diagonal ruler. Turn the paper 90 degrees and set the first score line parallel to the projecting corner, as you can see on the photo. Make another score line downwards. Do this twice more so that you end up with four score lines.

Next, trace each ‘flap’ of the envelope onto different sheets of Love It paper. Cut these flaps a little smaller than the envelope flaps and stick them onto the envelope.
