How to make an envelope

From a scrap piece of paper and the Envelope Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers

What if you have a left over piece of paper & the envelope punch board, but you don’t really know how to use it? Let me show you!

I’m sure that a lot of you have a lot of pieces of paper left over from some project. And now you need to make an envelope, and you know you could do that with the envelope punch board, but it seems too difficult. It took me a little while to get the hang of this tool. The instruction booklet is rather tiny. All of the numbers and measurements, it’s not really intuitive to use.

Still, it’s a great tool, that gives you beautiful envelopes, so I decided to make a video for you. To show you how to do it. With little time or effort. How does that sound?

In essence this is what you do:
  • measure the size of the paper you will work with
  • look up the number that is closest to that size in the column paper size
  • trim the paper if needed
  • look up the number in the column score line that goes with the paper size you choose
  • align the left side of your paper with the number from the score line column
  • when you work in inches you find that number in gold at the top
  • when you work in centimeters you find the number just below the gold numbers
  • line it all up, keep the paper straight
  • score along the score mark
  • turn the paper counter clock wise
  • align the score in the paper with the score guide
  • score again
  • repeat until you have 4 scores in your paper
  • now you are ready to fold
  • you can round the edges with the corner rounder at the top
