1) Glue envelopes together in four rows of three, adhering flaps behind the bottom of each envelope. Fold top flap back and adhere to back of its own envelope. 2) Overlapping by about 1/4", attach envelope “strips” together to make a panel that is 4 pockets wide by 3 pockets tall. 3) Cut paper rectangles from scrapbook paper and cardstock to fit fronts of pockets; adhere to each pocket. 4) Cut three rectangles of cardstock the height of one envelope.
