"Envelope Invite"

Step 1: Cut a piece of paper, 6" x 6"

Step 2: Line up the top and bottom point at the 6" groove on the Scor-Pal. Score at 4"" and 8, rotate and repeat.

Step 3: Notch out where the lines intersect and fold into envelope shape.

Step 4: Cut two pieces of paper, one 2 " x 2 " (outside of card), the other 3 " x 3 " (for inside of card)

Step 5: Make a mark at 1 1/4" on two opposing sides of the smaller square. Place this 2 " x 2 " piece of paper in the center on the front of the card to cover folds, marks at top and bottom.

Step 6: Make a mark on the envelope, top and bottom to correspond with the marks you made on the

square. Remove piece of paper, make a notch (V shape) starting either side of the mark. The point of the V faces the point of the envelope. Refer to the photo.  (Diana: I used an exacto knife. I did not have a notch tool)

Step 7: Glue the square of paper to the top flap. Glue down the notch you cut.

Step 8: Glue larger square to inside of the envelope. This is the perfect spot for writing your invitation details.
