EnveloBox Tutorial

Hello ladies. Most of my square cards are 6"x6".  And i never can find an Envelope to fit my cards, so i made one.  I know we have many tutorials on the web, but i just didn't understand them. So here is how i did. I used MS score board, if you don't have one you can use ruler and score tool. I have here on first Photo Paper12"x12" square. I put my 6"x6" card right in the middle of this page, and that's how i find out where to make my first score, make sure to have your page in this positions like on this Photo.
I made my Envelope little bigger then a card, so my envelope is 6"1/4x6"1/4.  Score like you see on the Photo. Do this on all 4 sides. Then you need to put your card flat and see thickness of your embellishments. Measure that,  and that's where your next score will be 4" 3/4.  do that on all 4 sides of your page.
after you did all scores, cut out all corners
You will have something like this. Fold your scores.
You can use corner punch, to make your flips round (but you don't have to do this)
all you need to do now, is to glue all together.


I find Zip Dry glue is the best, it's drys very fast and strong. I got mine from Wall-Mart. 
And now you have prefect envelope for your bulky cards. If you like you can also decorate your envelope to match your card

 And here is my card with gorgeous digital image "Kisme T" by Rick St. Dennis. You can find it at Etsy Shop.
 As you see here, i have some bulky Flowers on my Card, and my EnveloBox just prefect for it.

Look out for another tutorial, how to make 6"x6" Box from your 8"1/2x11" printer size cardstock. I like to know what do you think about this tutorial, and i hope this will help you to make your own EnveloBox.
