Our February 2024 valentine month workshop will be a wonderful little flag book with many envelopes to hold messages or small pieces of art. Our instructor will be Kris Nevius. Templates and paper suggestions for the envelopes and inserts will be sent when you register.


  • Accordion Cover: 2" x 18" grain short
  • Envelopes: 6 envelopes for inside of the book and, optional, 1 or 2 more for the front cover and inside or outside of the back cover.
  • Inserts: one for each envelope
  • Belly Band: 5/8" x 8 1/2"
  • Envelope folding guide: (on the envelope template page) and insert guide (on the insert sheet)
  • Thread: 8" or so for each envelope. Waxed linen is good.
  • Attachments for pull string: beads, at least 2 per envelope. Or use a 3/8" circle punch or 3/8" square punch to punch out 2 circles or squares per envelope. Or just cut out small squares.
  • Tools: scissors, Exacto knife, ruler, pencil, cutting mat, awl, bone folder, corner rounder, glue stick or other glue to glue the envelopes, scrap paper to glue on.


Print out:

  • Envelope template page onto cardstock or acetate
  • Insert page onto cardstock or heavier scrapbook paper or the like. Add content if desired.

Cut out:

  • Accordion cover paper: Mi-Teintes works well for this.
  • Envelope template and envelope folding guide
  • 6-8 envelopes, using envelope template. Use a paper that will fold easily, but not tear easily. Kris used paste paper done on Arches Text Wove.
  • Inserts: 6-8. Use a corner rounder on all 4 corners if desired.
  • Insert guide (on insert page)
Keep envelope template handy for reference during class.
