This is a chart for pointed flap envelopes. In my opinion they are not as pretty or practical as the fold down wide flap in our previous tutorial but this way you can make the choice. Larger size envelope tutorials will appear in upcoming Ezines.

REMEMBER: Square envelopes are non-standard and require extra postage.

Our common letter and cardstock size  is 8 1/2” x 11”.

For countries using metric sizing it is called A4 paper and is 210 mm x 297 mm, 8.27” x 11.69”

Perfect for bulky cards

In each step pay attention to the orientation (points) of your paper.

 

Step One:  Paper size is 8 1/4"square. Align top point at 6” score line.  Ensure bottom point is also in the same groove.  Score at 3” and 9.”

Step Two: Move point to 6 Ό.” Visually line up between 6” and 6 ½” as there isn’t a marking at 6 Ό,” and score at 3.”

Step Four:

Turn the paper a quarter turn, align top point at 6.” Ensure bottom point is also in the same groove.  Score at 3 ½”, 3.66 (inverted [upside down] triangle) and 8 ½.”  There are three scores in all.

Step Six:

The score lines intersect along the outer edges of the paper.  At each intersection, cut out a “v” shape, cutting to the inner score of the intersection.  Be sure to cut on the outside of the score lines.

Step Three:

Move point to 5 Ύ.” Visually line up between 5 ½” and 6” as there isn’t a marking at 5 Ύ,” and score at 9.”

Step Five:

Move point to 6 Ό.”  Visually line up between 6” and 6 ½” as there isn’t a marking at 6 Ό,” and score at 8 ½” and 11.”

Step Seven:Now, to complete your Envelobox, carefully fold score lines on one side, you are forming the edges of the box.  Fold the remaining sides in the same manner.  Fold and form box.

 

 

 

 

 

Step Eight:

Place Scor-Tape on as illustrated.

Glue down the little flap.

 

Step Nine:

Remove backing and adhere box together.  Create matching cards with the remainder of your patterned paper.  Seal your Envelobox with envelope glue, stickers, ribbons, etc.

 

Watch for other size “Enveloboxes” in upcoming Ezines.

Scoring Measurements

For cards smaller than 4” square there is far too much overlap and wasted paper. Use the size table on the previous page.
