Envelope for Dimensional Cards

Dear all,

I make lots of cards using 3D flowers on it and there is always a question, how to handover it to the person. Most of the people use plastic bags. But here is a wonderful way to present this card in matching boxed envelope.

I hope this tutorial will be helpful to you. I am giving all the measurements and instructions for standard A2 size card which measures 5.5" X 4.25". If you like this tutorial and you want me to give in certain sizes feel free to ask.

Material :
12X12 paper, Glue, Cutter, Score board, corner punch (optional), pair of scissor.

Instructions :
First cut the paper in size of 9"X 9" using your paper cutter.


Then get the score board and use the extension comes with it for making envelops ( Martha Stewart cutter has this additional triangular shape measuring thing)

Get your paper on the score board and score on 3 5/8" and 4 1/8 "



Turn the paper at 90 degrees and score at 2 3/4" and 3 1/4"





Turn again and score at 3 5/8" and 4 1/8 " and then last turn and score at 2 3/4" and 3 1/4"  So your two opposite sides are large and two sides are small.

Your score lines will look like this when you done your scoring job.


Now if you want you can trim all 4 corners or just top and bottom corner in round or any of your choice shape.


Now please look at the pencil marked triangles. We need to cut two of the small triangles from both side of the bottom and whole both large triangles on top....hope you got it ;-)


Then your envelope shape will look like this.


Now just cut those bottom squares like this. Do not cut all the way. But if you cut it all the way do not worry still your box is safe. But just for extra sturdiness we just need to keep them. 


Now fold all the score lines and it is now getting in shape :-) 

Assemble your box using strong glue or sticky tape inside the bottom fold on both edges and also on those two square notches.


Here you go...isn't this easy, neat and pretty :-)


My beautiful card using handmade 3d flowers and Matching Envelope 


Lovely....



Perfectly fit and ready to present...

You can even decorate the envelope from out side using flowers, sentiments, ribbons....options are limitless.



Now no more worries of presenting your wonderfully decorated dimensional cards.
Have fun !!




Love,
Archana

Great tutorial and I thank you very much for doing such a step by step for us! This is generally the size I do but as you know it is so easy to go crazy when making a card using Heartfelt Creations dies and stamps. What would the paper dimensions be for a 5x7 card be please? I don't have a Martha Stewart score board with that handy triangle.

Many thanks

Fabulous tutorial. I often do cards in a 6"x6" format or a 5"x5" format so instructions for those sizes would be much appreciated.
Hugs!

Thanks so much. Most of my cards get mailed, butthis would work. Anyway, I mostly make A9 (half fold) cards. I know that a 12X12 sheet isn't big enough, but could you figure out how to glue two sheets together to make a 5.75 and 8.75 or slightly smaller envelope? Thanks

Thanks so much for doing this tutorial! It has always been a problem once I decorate a card with much dimension to give it to the person. This makes the envelope part of the gift as well
Appreciate you sharing
