How I make my skinny envelopes

I have been asked a few times if I make my own envelopes. The answer is yes, so I thought I would come on today to show you how.

Toady's project will be an envelope for my long skinny card. They are so easy to make, this envelope fits a card that measures 6" x 2.1/2" see my card below, there is also a tutorial on how to make this card.



Here is a few pictures of the envelopes I have made for the cards I recently showed on my tutorials,
Today's envelope will be for the just because card I made. Its so easy to change up the measures to suit any card project you are working on.

Here's how we make it.

Card or paper size 8" x 6.1/2" scored on the long side at 3/4" turn your paper 180 degrees and score again at 3/4"

On the short side score at 1.1/2" and 4.1/2
I used a corner rounder to give a more professional look to the end flaps.

To see me make this envelope go over the tutorial on my channel.

I hope this has answered any question you might had and helps you to make your own long skinny envelopes.

Happy crafting Danielle x

Don't forget the winner will be announced on my channel today, They will win the last two weeks of my projects..
