Day #1 of 30 Days Of Thankfulness

This is the project for day #1 of our 30 Days of Thankfulness. This project was inspired by two of our sweet subscribers, Gabby Arias and Betty Blevins, who asked for a demo on a loaded envelope and an inexpensive do some Thanksgiving table favors.

This is very easy below are all the measurements and the photos. Any questions just let me know.

Start out with a 12x12 piece of paper score at 3 1/4 and 8 3/4" Turn 1 turn and score at 8 1/2"

The little book that goes inside is 7"x6" scored in the middle of the long side at 3 1/2"

Pocket is 3 1/2"x4 1/2" and scored on all 4 sides at 1/2", fold all sides in putting score tape on the inside of the top flap (one of the long sides) fold this down to finish out the pocket leaving no raw edges. Put score tape on the other 3 sides on the outside of the pocket, place these down and stick to your little book.

All of these measurements are optional and you can alter anyway you like this is just my twist on the loaded envelope.

For all other measurements and how to put this all together just watch the video at the link below.


Thank you Betty Blevins and Gabby Arias for your suggestions.
