Now use any size circle punch you have laying around and punch out half circles at the top of the envelopes like done below. Only cut threw the front layer of the envelope. This makes it easier for your flap to come out and looks nice.
Do the same for the center of the mini album and the flap on the right. I purposely left the left inside flap as is to use it as a big space to put a picture on or journaling. I also did not want too many tabs for this project but you can always add one if you have alot of journaling to do.
I then used my Stampin' Up ink and distressed ALL the edges of the mini album.
Note that I also glued back the half circles I had cut out. I glued them to the back of the envelope and distressed around the cut out areas.
Here is a view from the inside of the mini album.
This is to show what the half circle looks like when you glue the cut out piece to the back layer of the envelope. It's a little trick and looks nice.
