Envelope Tutorial…..

2 Jul

Good Afternoon crafty friends… I have received several messages asking me to do a tutorial for the punched edge envelopes so here it is!

This envelope measures 5″ x 6″

These instructions are for the Martha Stewart Scoring Board.

Start with an 8 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ piece of card stock.  With your triangle corner tool in place score at 3 5/8″ and then turn your page 90 degreesThen score at 3″ and again turn your page 90 degrees…

Score at 3 5/8″ again and turn 90 degrees…

Then score again at 3″….

Now cut out the little pieces where your score lines go over each other  (I know I am not explaining this well) here’s a picture to show you….

Now round off the bottom widest flap using your corner rounder…

Now use some strong adhesive Sookwang tape works the best I find.  Oh and PLEASE note where I put the tape…. Like a dunce I taped the actual flap twice and ended up gluing my envelop shut TWICE!  *roll eyes*  here’s a pic…

Still with me?  LOL!!!

Now using a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch set start with the corner and punch the envelope flap… once you have punched the corner line up your punches and punch down both sides of the flap….

Almost done!!!  Now cut a 4″ x 4″ piece of matching design paper to decorate your envelope and adhere it to the inside flap of your envelope…

And there you have it!!!…..

How slick is that huh? 😉  Here’s a peek at the card and envelope together…

Well, I hope you have found this useful and if you make one, let me know how you made out!

Thanks for stopping by!

    Your Tutorial is awesome! Love it, also loved it when we took the class! Now, I have a question……is there a simple way to adapt this to other sizes, without to much trouble?
