Today is the last day of the box,bag, envelope tutorials using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge. I have not figured out what I am doing next week yet, so in the comment section tell me what you want to see. Do you want to see more tutorials? If so what tutorials would you like to see?
Today's tutorials are not full projects. I am going to show you how to assemble the envelopes, what size to cut out your envelopes, and a few things you can do to dress up your envelopes.
*edited to add: I used Close To My Heart white cardstock to make these envelopes. It is a medium cardstock. Not too thick, not too thin. It works really well for making envelopes!
|I cut the square envelope out at 5" which is what you get when you choose the 'fit to page' option on your machine. Once assembled the envelope is 5" x 5".|
|I then scored it using my Score Pal.|
|When you add adhesive to your envelope, I recommend you add it the the bottom flap only. It just seems to work out better than way. I am not sure if you can see the shiny surface of the envelope, but that is the adhesive.|
|For today's tutorial I used my ATG gun.|
|The is the envelope after it has been assembled.|
|I quite often dress up my envelopes. This particular envelope will have a Winter theme.|
|I used this stamp set which coordinates with the Art Philosophy cartridge. It is called Snowflakes.|
|I stamped the border across the bottom.|
|Then I decided to add this snowflake which I cut using Art Philosophy at 2".|
|Then I added it to the envelope's back flap. It just adds that little something.|
|The rectangular envelope cuts out at 6 1/2" when you use the 'fit to page' feature. When the envelope is assembled the dimentions are 6 1/4" x 4 3/4".|
|I scored it using my Score Pal.|
|Again I recommend adding the adhesive to the bottom flap as shown above using the ATG gun.|
|This is the assembled envelope.|
|To decorate this envelope, I used one the of the stamps from the Pair a Phrase stamp set.|
|I then colored the image with these markers.|
|This was super fast to do and adds just a little bit of needed color and makes the envelope even more custom.|
