3 Ways to make any size of Envelope
1. Use an existing envelope to make a template, quick and easy, but something we don’t always remember to do.
2. Square Envelope – Mark the diagonals and measure from the centre to the outside corner add that measurement to the size of the square to get the size of paper you need.
e.g. Square is 6″ measurement from centre to edge is 4″ paper needed to make envelope is 10″ square
3. Take your card measurement Length and add 1 1/2″ and the Width and add 1/2″, then double that measurement and add 2″. This gives your paper measurement for the envelope. You then score at 1/2″ along the sides of the length and at 2″ and the the width measurement (plus the 1/2″).
e.g 8 1/2″ (L) x 4 1/4″ (W) card, 8 1/2″ + 1 1/2″ = 10″
4 1/4″ + 1/2″ = 4 3/4″ double this 9 1/2″ + 2″ = 11 1/2″
(L) score at 1/2″ and 9 1/2″
(W) score at 2″ and 4 3/4″
I hope you have lots of fun making envelopes for all your cards. Do send me pictures I love to see them!
