Envelope Punch Board Reunion Book

Hey there We R fans! I’m writing this post from the condo we’re staying at for our family reunion. That’s such a special part about summer–traveling and getting together with family. And this summer we happen to have three!

Family reunions are awesome, but can be a bit overwhelming with so many people you don’t see very often. Sometimes we have to give our kids (and ourselves) a little refresher before the big event to help them remember everyone’s name. Here’s a fun and crafty way to do just that–an Envelope Punch Board Reunion Book!

We R Family Reunion Cinch Book by Aly Dosdall

This easy little book is 4 1/2″ x 7″ and fits 4×6 photos. I created five 4″ x 6 1/2″ envelopes using patterned papers from the Farmers Market collection and my Envelope Punch Board.

I trimmed off the top flap and embellished the front of each envelope, adding the names of our relatives so our kids can learn them.

Once I finished each envelope I made some simple covers and then used The Cinch tool to bind them all together. Our family loves browsing through the photos and remembering who all our relatives are. That way we don’t feel so awkward when reunion time comes! What’s great about using the Envelope Punch Board is that you can make whatever size envelopes you need to fit different size photos–everything from full 4×6, to phone size, to wallet size, to Instagram.
