I have a couple of articles that I've made copies of and would like to put in my scrapbook. I was thinking about putting them in an envelope and gluing the envelope in the back of the scrapbook. I hope this makes sense. I would love to buy an envelope for this size paper that is acid free for crafting? I found some online, but they were around $6 with $7 shipping costs. I would love to find them locally but have no idea where to look. Where would I find them?

Thanks,

I have a box of envelopes (8 1/2 by 11) from one of the large retail stationary stores and used my pH testing pen to confirm that they are acid free. I simply cut off the top flap portion that has the adhesive on it that is used to close the envelope. I use them in a number of my albums to hold keepsake birthday cards and trip ephemera.

Why not use a page protector?

I wanted to do the same thing so I bought one of those 3 prong folders you use for reports, put the articles in 8 1/2 x 11 page protectors, put the protectors in the folder (wanted them in a specific order) and then just slipped the entire folder in a 12x12 page protector. I put a thin piece of cardboard covered with patterned paper to match to put behind the folder in the page protector to keep it from being so "floppy".

I was thinking about suggesting just a 8 1/2" x 11" page protector - they're all over the place at office stores - but an envelope would hold more and have a little more stability. I think it would depend on how much stuff you want to put in it.

I was thinking about a page protector but didn't think it would be sturdy enough. I have one, so I'll try one and see before buying an envelope. Thanks for the input everyone.
