Day 2 - fun with envelopes

Day 2 of Unity Week here!!!
This is a little 'portfolio' made from 5x7 Kraft envelopes I had lying around. You can use any size envelopes, but I went with the bigger ones since most of my photos are 4x6 when printed.
I've been wanting to try one of these since I had see it HERE on Becky Oehler's blog. I made mine for my {in between} photos.........printed, but not scrapped yet. You can use these little envelope "folios" for just about anything........images, receipts, recipes, coupons, etc.
The top photo is of the outside and the next photo is of the inside where the pockets are.
I stamped distressed dots in Creamy Caramel for my own DP and added buttons, twine, and more stamps from my Unity Kits of the Month from April and back to September.
It all folds up nice and neat and the twine and buttons hold all in place!
Thanks for stopping by...............back tomorrow with more UNITY!!
