DIY Wedding Anniversary Album

Hi, friends! It’s Yui here today. I will show you how to make a beautiful anniversary mini album. It has 11 envelopes with numbers from 0 to 10. You can put wedding anniversary photos, letters, journals, etc. in the envelopes for 10 years.

I used the Market Square collection by Maggie Holmes and American Crafts. It’s so beautiful and gorgeous!

First, I made envelopes using Slimline Punch Board. I need 4″ × 4″ envelopes, so I used 6.5″ × 9″ patterned papers. Set the paper horizontally and trim along the track according to the instructions. Then score along the guide. Don’t assemble yet! It’s time to decorate with beautiful embellishments! I used 6×12 sticker sheet, puffy phrase and accent stickers, ephemera packs, puffy stickers, paper clips, paper bows and sticker book! 

Before sticking envelope with double sided tape, let’s make a cover!

I used three pieces of chipboard, two of which measured 4.5 x 4.5 inches with the spine measuring 4.5 x 2 inches. I wrapped these using patterned paper. The size of paper is 5.5 × 12 inches. And the size of paper for inside is 4 × 10.5 inches.

Then tie a thread to spine. Insert the side of envelope and assemble the envelope with double sided tape. I made 11 envelopes, so I tied 11 threads. I added enamel dots on the spine and title sticker on the cover.

Next, I personalized it using a print maker! I need our year labels. I decided to print on washitape, and put it on the flap.

Touch “+ create” button in print maker app. Touch “tool”, “text” and input numbers. I changed font to great vibes. Then, I added a cute icon! Push “tool”, “import” and choose favorite collection and clip art. I used “Fresh Bouquet” and “Dearly Beloved” collection. It’s so easy and fun! So I also made a name label for back of the cover.

Yay! Done!

Last, I need to take a gooooood photo and video! I used shot stand by WeR memory keepers. I’m a dining table scrapper, so I need to take a video also at the dining table. It’s better to attach the camera to a place other than the work table so that it won’t shake. So, I set the shot stand at the kitchen counter. I took all of this minialbum’s photos and videos using this!

Here are some detail photos! I hope you like it and refer to it with your project. Thank you for stopping by.  There is also a video on YouTube so check it out!
