I think the Envelope Punch Board is awesome! I really do, it’s such a great tool and I use it all the time; not only for envelopes but boxes and bows too! I was putting together the blog posts for this week, and realised how perfect it would be to have all your wedding stationary completely coordinating – even down to the envelopes. And then I thought, we have the most perfect tool for that! So, here we are; How to Make an Envelope using the Envelope Punch Board!
What great Designer Series Paper to work with too, I have been loving this Sahara Sand / Whisper White combination recently, and I think it makes great neutral wedding stationary. In fact I have some of this paper hoarded away ready for the Wedding Album! (Its getting rather close now!)
To create an envelope perfectly sized for a A6 card, you will need a piece of Designer Series Paper that measures 8 1/4 x 8 1/4″.
Now, I know, normally I try to give you both metric and imperial measurements, however, when your using the Envelope Punch Board, the imperial measurements are much easier to see and use, so this time, I’m sticking with inches!
Insert you Designer Series Paper into your punch board punch, and line the left hand side of the paper up with the 3 5/8″ mark.
Punch and score using the scoring tool provided.
Turn your Designer Series Paper a quarter turn and line the previously made score line up with the guide on the punch, and punch and score again. Repeat this on all 4 sides.
Turn your Envelope Punch Board around and use the reverse side of the punch to round the corners of your envelope.
Fold and burnish your score lines using the side of the scoring tool.
Use your adhesive of choice to stick your envelope together, using a glue dot to secure the top flap (once your handmade card is inside, of course!)
