Rolodex Carousel

I decided I'd post my cute altered Rolodex carousel. I am the owner/moderator for a Yahoo Rolodex group. I have received/and sent many many beautiful cards. Thanks to everyone who has contributed to this wonderfully addictive craft!

Trifold Mini Album

2 8 1/2 x 11" sheets of cardstock
3 Envelopes (Width should be less than 4 3/4")
2 12x12 sheets of patterned paper

Score one sheet of the cardstock at 2", 2 1/4", 6 3/4", and 7".
Creased scorelines well with bone folder.
Scallop cut shortest section (flap)

Seal each envelope shut. Cut them along the short side at the following lengths: 6", 7", and 8". Apply patterned paper to each envelope.

Cut remaining sheet of card stock the same length as the envelopes but 1/4" less in width (inserts). Cut 3 strips the same width as envelopes and 2" long. Score and crease at 1". (These will be the hinges for the envelopes) Cut one piece 11" x 2" for the belly band and score at 3", 3 1/4", 7 3/4" and 8". Crease well with bone folder.

Use a circle punch to cut a 1/2 circle in the open end of each envelope.

Apply a hinge to the longest envelope (valley fold to the inside), apply strong adhesive to back side of that hinge and apply to cover. Do the same with the 7" envelope, then lastly the 6" envelope on top.

Apply any additional embellishments to the inside of the album. Close album and apply belly band and finish by embellishing the outside of the cover.
