Today I have done something extra special, a matchbook style booklet with sleeves made of envelopes with tiny little note cards. For the opposite page I did a narrow design that allows for a picture and some journaling.

- Seal each envelope and then trim so it is open and is now a pocket at one end and using the 1 inch circle punch each envelop so when you put the little cards in you can pull out easily.
- With the pocket scored and folded like an accordian and using adhesive add an envelope to each section.
- Using circle Velcro dots add one to the Crushed Curry and then remove the other stick and close the top to ensure positioning.

- Take a blender pen and Melon Mambo Classic Ink and remembering to work from the inside out – dark to light to give each flower shape and form.
