3D Envelope Tutorial in Various Sizes!!

Dear All,
As per the request I am trying to give a simple step tutorial for couple of popular sizes 3D envelopes.

Before I get into tutorial I wanted to give answers of some questions.


  • Can I use We R Memory Keeper's Envelope Punch Board?
Yes, We R Memory Keeper's Punch Board is made for making envelopes. But measurements are different than my simple tutorial so I will be giving those sizes as well if any of you are using this punch board.


  • We have to have Martha Stewart's or any other scoring board?
No, Scoring board is really really handy but if you don't have it then simply mark the points with the pencil and use the ruler and whatever tool you can use to make the score marks. Long back when I didn't have these fancy tools I was simply using empty Ball-pen to make my score marks. But make sure to get few news papers or planner underneath. Do not do it on table of hard surface. To get nice score marks you will need some kind of cushion.





  • Can we use chipboard or some strong paper?
Yes, you can use thin chipboard. But I prefer to use basic card stock to make envelope and then I cut this beautiful designer paper as per the sizes and stick on the envelope. So layers makes this box more sturdy and look beautiful as well. You will need 4 triangles and one square or rectangle which depend on what size envelope you are making.

Alright...lets get started.

I will start with my all time favorite and most requested size - 6x6.

For 6x6 Card Envelope we will need 10 3/8" square paper.

First Score at 3 3/4"  and Second Score at 4 1/4" 








Turn the paper and repeat the same step for all 4 sides. Then your score lines should look like this. I know I know these are hard to see...but believe me they are there...LOL!!




Now we need to cut two large triangles on the bottom side and two small one of each sides on the top. I have highlighted those for you.



Then your final shape of unfinished envelope will look like this and now if you want you can round the corners. 
And if you are using plain cardstock to make basic envelope now this is the perfect time to layer your designer paper ( 4 Triangles and one Square) so your envelope will look pretty and because of the layers it will be more sturdy. Hope it make sense :-)







Then glue the bottom edges of both the sides of the triangles and the small notch and stick carefully. You can use any strong glue or score tape.





Here is your finished 6x6,  3D envelope....wasn't that easy :-)




 Now insert your beautifully decorated card inside...



Ready To Post !!



What do you think?? You can do it right :-) I know you can!!

Measurements for We R Memory Keeper Punch Board Users.

Paper size - 10 3/8" Square
First Punch at 4 7/8" and score
Second Punch at 5 1/2" and Score
Repeat these steps again and fold and assemble your envelope!!


Now time to move to the next requested and most useful size - 5 X 7

For this size we need the same size paper as we used for 6x6 which is 10 3/8" Square.



First Step - Score at 4" and 4 3/8"



Second Step - Turn the paper and score at 3 1/4" and 3 5/8"




 


Turn the paper and repeat the First Step and Second step so first and second step will be used alternately. Hope you got it.

Now all score lines look like this. You can hold your card in between and check if it fit within all inside lines.



Now please cut the highlighted triangles. Large two from bottom and small two of each sides on top ( as per the picture, it is vice versa ). The purpose of cutting small triangles on top or bottom however you can see your score lines is to get that tiny notch which we need to stick inside so our envelope will be sturdy.



This is the shape you will get before fold and assemble your envelope.


Time to glue now.



This is your final envelope.



I am sure your card will be happy and safe inside :-). This envelope is bit larger then the card. Sometimes our flowers or decoration come outside of the card size so for some wiggly space I created it bit larger than the card size.


One lucky recipient is waiting for this beautiful card !!



Measurements for We R Memory Keeper Punch Board Users.

Paper size - 10 3/8" Square
First Punch at 5 1/2" and score
Second Punch at 6 1/4" and Score
Repeat these steps again and fold and assemble your envelope!!

For 5x5 " Card

Paper size - 9" Square
First Punch at 4 1/8" and score
Second Punch at 4 7/8" and Score
Repeat these steps again and fold and assemble your envelope!!


For 3x4 " Card

Paper size - 6 7/8" Square
First Punch at 3 1/2" and score
Second Punch at 4 1/8" and Score
Repeat these steps again and fold and assemble your envelope!!

For A7 ( 5.5"X7.5" )Card

Paper size - 10 3/4" Square
First Punch at 5 3/4" and score
Second Punch at 6 3/8" and Score
Repeat these steps again and fold and assemble your envelope!!




For 10 X10 " Card there will be whole new tutorial on the blog soon!

Sunrise Lily Layout - New Release by Heartfelt Creations

Dear All,

I can't wait to introduce this new Heartfelt Creations Release called, "Sunrise Lily"

Rich and regal in appearance, along with a divine fragrant beauty and ornamental trumpet shaped blossom makes the lily flower a well known garden variety and a sure sign that spring has sprung.  Heartfelt Creations invites you to prepare to welcome the season of new beginnings, fresh starts and the bursting forth of nature with the new Sunrise Lily Collection. As the title of this assemblage suggests, it is filled with the romantic hues of a beautiful sunrise or sunset...glorious shades of pinks, oranges, and yellows  which also reflect the stunning color palette of the lily blossoms as they appear in the gardens themselves. Ravishing shades of greens, creams and whites bring a crispness and a breath of fresh air just as the spring season itself. Patterned papers reveal regal ornamental iron like scroll work, dainty lace elements and lovely vintage like floral details.  Beautiful imagery of lily filled vases, pretty flower adorned garden hats and luscious floral bouquets grace varying sized card panels, scrapbook layouts and embellishment tags, and are replicated in five sets of delicately detailed stamp illustrations.  The crowning glory to the collection itself is the dimensional lily flower that will add a touch of reality to each of your springtime creations.  So, chase away those winter blues brought on by old man winter, combat spring fever by filling your creative space with a touch of splendor as you begin creating with the Sunrise Lily Collection for the upcoming spring and Easter season. 



Here are product details and how I created this project in detail.

Heartfelt Creations Products:
HCDP1 -263 Sunrise Paper Collection
HCPC=3720 Sunrise Lily Cling Stamp Set
HCD1-787 Sunrise Lily Die
HCD1-788  Sunrise Lily Swirls Die

HCST1-401- Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Kit

Other Products : 12X12 recollections chipboard, Tulip Fluffy paint, Foam dots, stampin up yellow and orange ink, Tim holt olive green distress ink, Rhinestones, Yellow and Dark Brown floral centers



Project instructions :
This is 12X12 layout, I have used one of the designer paper from the Sunrise Lily Paper Collection which has beautiful lily cluster graphic on all 4 corners. For sturdiness, added a backing of 12X12 chipboard. Those two decorative frame card panels are from the collection and used as a focal point or as a picture frame. A small frame is overlaying on one corner of the large frame and they are raised using foam dots. Those frames layered on cream color paper.
On the left side this beautiful floral design created using flat bouquet as well 3D flowers. In the collection there are printed images that match the Lily Swirls Dies. Simply diecute couple of these swirls images and a cute hat and added on the both sides of the 3D flower bouquet.
Those pretty lilies created using Sunrise Lily Die and Sunrise Lily Cling Stamp Set, stamped in Black ink. This realistic flower shape was possible because of the Deluxe Flower Shaping Tool Kit. Each petal colored in orange and yellow ink using sponge daubers. Also all these leaves are colored with olive green. Couple of Lily buds created using two of the small size lily petals. One petal colored in Orange and Yellow and rolled in a bud shape and wrapped with the other petal which colored in olive green.
Tulip Fluppy Paint gave a 3D effect, simply using on the edges of petals, buds and leaves. 
Rhinestones gave a sparkle touch to this project. Some Yellow and Dark Brown stamens in the center gave a realistic look to thees flowers.
Hope you will like this project. I had so much fun since this one is one of my top favorite HC collections.
