Altenew Build-A-Flower: Daffodil Release

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Build-A-Flower: Daffodil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the amazing daffodil flower.  If you arrived here from the talented Laura Jane blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my envelope journal:

Daffodil’s are my favorite flower! They are so pretty and petite. Plus, they aren’t expensive!

Here’s how I created this envelope journal:

Gather 5 envelopes that you want to use.

Add adhesive to the outside flap of the envelope. Not the side that already has the tape.

Slide the flap inside one of the envelopes so that the edges meet.

It should look like this.

Continue to add envelopes.

Cut the flap off of the first envelop to create the book.

Decorate the book to your style. This stamp set has amazing sentiments. So encouraging.

Stamp each page and add journaling cards inside of each flap.

Add photos of daffodils thought out the book.

Add tabs and sentiments on the back page.

Let’s take another look:

  1. Very creative idea creating a journal out of envelopes and I love the way the daffodil stamps look with the sentiments you chose. Thanks for the inspiration. I love daffodil’s

  2. Lovely envelope journal! Love this beautiful BAF set! Daffodils are a favorite! We have lots of them in our yard and I look forward to them as our first sign of spring!

  3. What a creative idea. The daffodil being the symbol of spring and starting a journal is super. I cannot wait to try this. Thank you

  4. I absolutely love what you did! Yellow is my favorite color in the whole wide world so of course daffodils are one of my favorite flowers. Looking at your page with all the yellow flowers is making me drool all over my computer! LOL That’s not good for my computer!
    What you did is so cool! I never would have thought to do that with envelopes! I love what you did with those envelopes & all the yellow & daffodils & I thank you for showing us what you did. Thank you for giving us the chance to win something.
