This Chic Bebe Boy Card Kit can be used for either 4 sets of Baby Boy Cards with diecuts to match

Image

OR you can do what I did and make a lovely little Envelope Mini-Album!
Image



Step 1
Press out the envelopes and fold and stick leaving one end open (thank-you to Paige for being my 'hand' model while I held the camera!!!)
Image
Should look like this when you squeeze the envelopes together
Image



Step 2
To make some covers - cut out cardboard just a little bigger than the envelopes
Image
Should look like this when held together
Image



Step 3
I painted my covers (you could also glue matching cardstock or pattern paper if you prefer) but first I sealed the cardboard with gesso as I knew my paint was 'thin'.
Image
Then painted the blue which is a 'glaze' blue
Image



Step 4
Once the paint was dry (I did seal it with impasto - or you could use modgepode etc) I measured and hole punched x2 into the covers and envelopes and join with 2 jump rings
Image



Step 5
Punch out the invitations from the kit and fold in half. You might like to sand off all the little 'taggy bits' from tearing away the diecuts
Image


Step 6
Holepunch once in the middle and get ready to thread some ribbon
Image
It should look like this:
Image
Image




Step 7
Insert into envelopes
Image

Image




Step 8
Time to decorate the cover...
Image

Image

Image




EXTRAS:
On the inside...
I painted on one side of the envelopes - which will probably have quotes on it - and the otherside with the joins will have a photo attached..
Image




LETS NOT STOP AT BOY COLOUR...
Why not try this too:

Image

I've only placed some pink prima rosettes here - but you get the gist!
Image

Image


If you want to give the album away as a 'baby shower gift' like I do, then I'm going to add into my gift the extra ribbon and embellies so my friend can change it to a boy or a girl mini-album..

This was a joy to make! :biggrin: :biggrin:

Thanks Ann!! :biggrin:


The embellies on the cover are only laid out on it because of being unsure of the sex of the baby..... it will look much better once done properly! :biggrin:
