Welcome to September’s edition of Teach Me Tuesday. I shared this tutorial over at Lucky Star Lane earlier in the year during a guest post but realized I never shared it here and with school starting this week, I just don’t have time to create a new tutorial so hopefully you guys will enjoy this one. I’m sure it can be improved some so if anyone happens to take a stab at this and makes revisions, let me know. I’d love to see it. 🙂
At my house we have this shelf above the sink that seems to be the dumping ground for anything kicking around the kitchen that does not have a permanent home. Since our kitchen is the main hub I often find myself taking my receipts from the grocery store (and Hobby Lobby!) and tossing them up on that shelf. As you can imagine it gets very cluttered especially since I’m somewhat of a shopaholic! I came across this little project the other day and thought it would be the perfect thing to store my receipts in. I made a few little changes to make it my own but it was really simple.
12×12 Scrapbook Paper (I used Amy Butler double sided paper which worked great)
Paper Cutter with Scoring Blade
Double Sided Tape
I noticed that my cover flap (not really sure what to call it!) was a bit longer than I wanted it to be so I trimmed some of it off. I wound up using it on the front of the envelope (the opposite side of the paper so that there was a contrast) to break up the pattern a bit. I know, I’m rambling, but I did warn you! 😉
Next I added velcro inside the envelope so that it would stay closed.
