Painted Autumn Paper Envelopes for Customer Gifts – envelope punch board tips

I love choosing a free goodie and making a matching box or packaging for my customers.  These are for customers who bought in September.  I hope they like the rhinestones (an essential in my craft drawer).  And I hope they like the envelopes too. 

I thought I’d make envelopes and I reminded myself of how much I like our envelope punch board. It makes envelopes easy peasy (and if you search on envelope punch board, you’ll see how to make boxes and other packaging… also there are patterns in the tab Ideas, Projects, Free Stuff)

I used the Painted Autumn paper.  I measured the rhinestone package and decided on a 4 ½ x 6 envelope. 

The grid at the bottom of the board told me to cut the paper 8 ½ x 8 ½ and it said the first punch is 3 ¾ - can you see where I'm pointing to??

So I punch and dragged the stylus along the groove.

Step 2 – DON’T use the ruler at the top (see my X) line up with the “pointer or score guide” and punch and drag the stylus… do this for 3 sides

Round the corners with the punch at the top.

Fold the sides.  I used tear n tape to secure the envelope.

Insert the rhinestones or card.  

I snipped out some sunflowers from another sheet of the paper.  And stamped the greeting from the Painted Harvest set, securing the envelope shut with a glue dot.

See the pumpkins… the envelope ends up on the diagonal, just so you know, I still think they look cute.  Ok 4 done, and a bunch more to go, thanks for shopping with me and using the host code. 

Happy stamping MaryKate
