Making Envelopes on a Close to My Heart Score Board

IMG_0084

Some lovely lady’s that I go to craft workshops with asked me to show them how to make some envelopes on the Close to My Heart score board. So I went home and had a little play and came up with two types of envelopes that you can make.

I much prefer the second one ( the flap over as opposed to the ‘V’ back one) as its much easer to make, but the choice is yours 🙂

This one I call the V back.                        This one I call the flap over.

As usual I got a bit carried away and made a whole bunch of different sizes so that you would have a choice.

Here are the measurements for printer paper that measures 11-5/8’x 8-1/4′:

For square V back envelopes

Make sure that the guide arm is firmly in place before you place your paper  on the diagonal line.

2’x 2′ card: cut paper @ 4-1/4′ x 4-1/4′  score @ 2-1/8′ on all four sides.

3’x 3′ card: cut paper @ 5-1/4’x 5-1/4′   score @ 2-5/8′ on all four sides.

4’x 4′ card: cut paper @ 7’x 7′                 score @ 3-1/2′ on all four sides

5’x 5′ card: cut paper @ 8-1/8’x 8-1/8′   score @ 4′ on all four sides.

I have decided to make another little video on how to make the rectangle envelopes as I have realized that I didn’t show you how to score it because their are two different measurements for it.

Now for the flap over one:

Pull the arm on the score board all the way out for this envelope.

For square envelopes

2’x 2′ cards:  cut paper @ 5’x 3-3/4′ score on the long side 1-1/4′ & 3-1/2′, and score on the short side @ 3/4′ & 3′.

3’x 3′ card: cut paper @ 7-1/2’x 5-1/2′ score on long side @ 1-3/4′ & 5-1/4′ and score on the short side @ 1′ & 4-1/2′.

4’x 4′ card: cut paper @ 9-1/2’x 6-1/2′ score on the long side @ 2-1/4′ & 6- 3/4′ and score on the short side @ 1′ & 5-1/2′.

5’x 5′ card: cut paper @ 11’x 7-1/4′ Score on the long side @ 2-1/2′ then turn to the other end and score @ 3-1/4′. Score on the short side @ 1′ & 6-1/4′

For the rectangle envelopes

4-1/4’x 5-1/2′ card: cut paper @ 9-3/4’x 7-3/4′ score on the long side @ 2-1/4′ & 6-3/4′ and score on the short side @ 1′ & 6-3/4′

4’x 6′ card: cut paper @ 9’x 8-1/4′ Score on the long side @ 2-1/4′ @ 6-1/2′ and score on the short side @ 1′ then turn to the other end and score @ 1′

3’x 8′ car: cut paper @ 10-1/4’x 7-1/2′ for this one you score on the short side first @ 2′ & 5-1/2′ and score on the long side @ 1′ then turn to the other end and score @ 1′, this will give you a long thin envelope.

Here is the video.

So for Rhonda, Meg and Seleste I hope that you will be able to make your own envelopes now.

Oh by the way I say card in the video when I should have said envelope …..what a numpty head I can be sometimes.

I’ll just go and make the other video for you now,  so till next time

Keep on creating 🙂
