How to make a trunk envelope book for ATC/ACEO

Take 10 envelopes, measures are 4, 5” x3”. Glue them through the middle making an accordion.

Cut the front and back of the trunk on fun foam or on a flexible cardboard. Use the template shown here. Measures are 5, 5’x 8” and 3, 5’ x 5, 5.

Cut 2 pieces of hard cardboard. Measures are 3, 5’ x 5, 5.

Cut the 2 top corners of the larger piece of fun foam in a rounded shape. It will be the lid of the trunk.

Embellish the fun foam parts with stitches. They can be real stitches or made with white acrylic paint. If you are using cardboard you can embellish it with collage, decoupage, fabric or whatever your want. The results are always beautiful.

Sew a button to the smaller part of the trunk and cut a buttonhole on the front.

Glue the cardboard pieces to the fun foam parts. Now glue the accordion envelopes to the cardboards. The trunk is ready.

Embellish the trunk using beads, fibers or ribbons.

Put your ATCs inside the envelope. The trunk stands alone and it is a lovely piece of decoration full of your precious art.
You can do trunks using other measurements like the one I did to hold tags.

Let me know or see how your project worked!
