Birthday Envelope Books

March 17, 2008 at 11:19 am (Birthday Project) (, , )

Following the huge success of the birthday circle books last year, I thought we should find another way of celebrating our birthday and raising money for our charity – the Lymphoma Association.

This year, we will be making our books from decorated envelopes

There will be three sizes:

* DL
* C5
* C6

The themes this year are:

* Messy and Grungey
* Going Postal
* Love Letters
* A Blast from the Past
* Floral Memories
* Nature’s Wonders
* Seaside Fun
* Childhood
* Bugs and Critters

Each theme can be made in each size of envelope – so we could get three books for each theme!

And as with last year there will be teams of 6-8 people (who will elect a leader who will also be responsible for making up the books )

Each team member will obtain an envelope of the right size and cut a piece of card that is 10mm smaller on each dimension than the envelope.

The team will decide whether the envelopes are to be bound together in a landscape or portrait fashion (so that they all work together in the book)

And then you just decorate away – both the card insert and the envelope

Everything is to be sent to your chosen team leader by the published date – ready for the auctions….

    great idea, you can get lots of different finishes to the envelopes too, the laid envelopes would give a fantastic effect for the book covers.
