Happy Monday, ladies! Hope you all had a lovely weekend. :)
This is Shruti here and am going to share with you girls a quick tutorial on how to make a boxed envelope using your Martha Stewart score board. To be honest, I am really bad when it comes to making envelopes except this particular one! Most of the cards I make require a boxed envelope due to all the embellishments I use on them.. I am sure there may be many ways to make a boxed envelope but this is how I do it.. :)
This is how my boxed envelope looks like with a card inside.. Cute, eh?! This particular envelop holds a rectangular or an oval card. The card I made here is measured 5.5 x 4 inches
Now, lets get on to the tutorial..
Cut a card stock to 8.25 inches square. Now place it along your envelope maker like so..
Score the card stock at 3 inch mark on the envelop maker
Score the card stock again.. this time at 2 and 5/8th inch. The width of the envelope depends on how thick your handmade card
Now rotate the card stock at 180 degrees and repeat the same step on the that side.
Now rotate the card stock at 90 degrees and score it at 3 5/8 inches on the envelope maker
Now score the same side again at 3 1/6 inches
Repeat the same step on the other side as well.
Cut off the overlapping score line.
Now you can start embellishing your envelope before you glue them together. I decided to use my Martha Stewart circle cutter to cut a circle in the center.
The circle is measured at 3 1/2 inches.
Now put the envelope together using glue or a double sided tape and your envelope is DONE!
I decided to go ahead and embellish my envelope further so I cut out some circle frames using my Silhouette Cameo.
I used my favorite mist from Tattered Angels to color the frame.
I dabbed the excess mist using a tissue and later dried it using my heat gun.
As for the simple circle frame I colored it using the Stazon ink in black.
Put them together and viola! your pretty envelope is ready!
Thats all folks!
Hope you find this tutorial useful!
