Success! 9″ x 4″ Envelope Created!

After quite a few attempts — with scratch paper — I managed to make envelopes that would fit the three cards I just completed for my neighbor.

The largest 4″ x anything” on the Envelope Punch Board is 4″ x 8-1/2″ and my requirement was 4″ x 9″.  After some thinking and lots of trial and error I settled on a 10-1/4″ x 10-1/4″ piece of Envelope Paper (2015-2017 In Color) and made my first punch and score line at 3-1/4″.

You have to be very careful with the scoring on the long side of the paper.  The result was a perfect fit.  I did have to seriously trim some paper from the flap that comes up from the bottom of the envelope as well as the final flap that closes the envelope.  I also attached a strip of Tear & Tape to the closing flap of the envelope for sealing once the gift certificate was placed inside the card.

Here are my finished projects:

Now I’m ready to move on to some fun projects using product from the upcoming 2017 Occasions Catalog and Sale-a-Bration brochure.  Do let me know if you don’t have a demonstrator, , and I’ll gladly send you these publications.
