Square Lined Envelope

Hi everyone!

Typically, the A2 size card is the most common. But sometimes it’s nice to change things up a bit. I created a 4 1/4″ square card but didn’t have an envelope on hand that would work. I do however have many A2 envelopes which measure 4 3/8″ x 5 3/4″. So, I altered one of them to create a square lined envelope to coordinate with the card.

You will need: A2 envelope, cutting tool of choice, scoring board, bone folder, adhesive, double sided tape, patterned paper {to coordinate with the card}, corner rounder punch{optional}.

1. Cut off 1/2″ from each end of the envelope.

2.  Round the flap corners with the corner rounder punch. Cut the patterned paper to 4 1/2″ x 4 1/2″. Round the top corners.

 

 

3.  Open up the envelope and lay it flat. Add a strip of double sided tape along the top edge of the flap. This allows the patterned paper to cover the existing adhesive and be placed up higher. The tape backing can be removed when ready to seal the envelope. Adhere the patterned paper.

 

 

4.  Line up the fold line of the flap on a groove on the scoring board. Score along that line, fold and crease with the bone folder to get a nice crisp fold.

5.  Add a strip of double sided tape along each side of the bottom of the envelope. Peel off the backing, fold up and press to seal the sides.

 

 

 

There you go! You now have a coordinating square envelope to go with your square card. My card ended up being damaged and could not be included in this photo, my apologies.

 

 

 

∗Please note: depending on your postal service, there may be a minimum size or extra charge for mailing square envelopes. Be sure to check before popping it in the mail. The information may also be obtained online.
