Facebook Page, you'll know that I have been pretty faithful with the Retirement Parade this month (a card each day showcasing the Stampin' Up! sets that will be retired in less than a week now!!).
I have been thinking about sharing this for a while, so today I want to give some hints for creating your own envelopes with the Simply Scored and Diagonal Plate. First, a video from Stampin' Up!
(Or if you are in too much of a hurry to watch the video, scroll down for a quick picture of how to create envelopes with the Simply Scored Diagonal Plate)
The Diagonal plate comes with measurements for a few basic cards, so let me share a quick reference for some other envelope sizes: Mary Fish (of Stampin' Pretty) has created a fabulous chart HERE...print it off and then come back to add these sizes:
* For a 6x6 card size, the finished envelope is approx. 6 1/4" square. Cut your paper to 10" square and both "A" and "B" scores are at 4 1/2" (BONUS: I'll be demonstrating this envelope along with a scrapbook page you can mail at my JUNE workshops, so book yours today!)
* For a 2x2 card size, a finished envelope is approx. 2 1/8" square. Cut your paper to 4" square and score at 1 5/8" on both A and B sides. I love to make these envelopes using vellum and the cards are a petite size for gift giving :)
REMEMBER: Some of these envelope sizes are too small to mail, so they must be given in person, allowing you time to visit with a friend as you deliver your thoughtful hand-crafted gift :)
