What I absolutely love about this project is that you can adapt it to any size envelopes that you have lying around. There no set size. I chose to use 5X7 envelopes (which is really 5 1/4" x 7 1/4") because I don't make a lot of 5x7 cards so, I have an abundance of them. The inserts for the the photo were 5x7, with a 4 1/2 x 6 1/2 matting, and a standard 4x6 photograph (save some time from cropping photos). Then all you do is attach one to the other by gluing the flap to the front side (the side you would address) of the bottom of the other envelope. Fold it like an accordian (refer to pictures) and begin to cover and decorate however you like.
Thanks for stopping in and hope I inspired you to create your own mini envelope album!
