Beginning this month I will also have a question and answer.  This month is about customized envelopes.
NOTE:  Any Simply Scored and Diagonal Score Pad purchase will include a chart for making 29 different sizes of envelopes.  It is so chic to have your envelopes from DSP that matches your card.  Contact me today and I will show you how to make them.


Q: Recently I saw a cute card with a small, patterned paper envelope on the front. How do you make those?

Paper Envelope Sample

A: Envelopes in a variety of sizes have become all the rage since the Diagonal Plate for the Simply Scored Scoring Tool was introduced recently. The Diagonal Plate makes creating envelopes a breeze – no more templates to trace and cut by hand! Hooray! Plus, envelopes are a great way to show off our beautiful double-sided Designer Series Paper without feeling guilty that we are covering up one of the patterns! While the Diagonal Plate comes with instructions and measurements to make four popular envelope sizes, one of my favorites is the small envelope for love notes!

Here’s how you can make the 3-1/8” x 3-1/8” envelopes to hold 3” x 3” love notes:

Envelope Pattern
Step 1: Cut a 5” x 5” piece of Designer Series Paper or card stock. Place the Diagonal Plate on the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. Place the paper on the Diagonal Plate. Score the first side at 2-1/4”. Rotate the paper 1/4 turn or 90 degrees. Score at 2-1/4” again. Repeat until all four sides are scored.

Step 2: Fold and crease all four score lines. Use a Bone Folder for crisp folds. Use Paper Snips or Square Punch to cut out the triangular scored sections.

Step 3: Fold in two side flaps to create the sides of the mini envelope. Add SNAIL, Sticky Strip, or Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the very edge of the bottom flap. Fold that flap up over the side flaps and adhere. The envelope is now complete!

You can add the envelope to the front of a card or a scrapbook page. Or use it to hand deliver a special little love note. You can use adhesive to close the top flap, tuck the flap inside the envelope, or use a button or brad and a bit of Baker’s Twine to create a fastener.

Have fun discovering all of the fun envelopes and envelope projects you can create with the Diagonal Plate!

Need help learning how to use your Simply Scored or Diagonal Plate.  Contact me and I will be glad to help.

 That's it for today.
