How to Create Envelopes

By Cards, Planner Stationary & Accessories

Hi Everyone!

As promised, I’m back with a continuation to my previous post on folding cards. I mentioned I would share a how-to video on creating quick envelopes for standard size cards. To refresh your memory, here’s a picture of the folding card & envelopes…envelopes

I have 2 different methods to create this card.

Method One: Martha Stewart Scoring Board (or a ruler and something to mark your page)
Step 1) Cut a piece of scrapbook paper to 8.5″ x 8.5″
Step 2) Turn the paper so it is in a diagnol shape (or use the tool provided for with the board)
Step 3) Score your paper at 3″ rotate & score it again at 3 5/8″ (then repeat for the other 2 sides).
Step 4) Add some glue and adhere your envelope together.

Method 2: Digital Cut File – I used silhouette studio
Step 1) Cut your envelope template
Step 2) Crease your folds
Step 3)  Add some glue and adhere your envelope together.

Although both methods produce the same result, I tend to lean towards using the digital cut file to create my envelopes. It is a great way to mass produce envelopes when you are in a time crunch.

I hope you found this tutorial helpful! Feel free to leave comments or questions =)

See you next time!
