Last Friday was my birthday and I have such great friends and family that I needed thank you cards. One of my gifts was the envelope maker. What a great tool. Easy enough for even me to use it. So I made some mini envelopes, designed some mini cards and had a lot of fun. So much fun that I decided to share the instructions here.
I pulled out a pack of 6 x 6 paper. (All measurements are in inches) The chart on the envelope maker says 6 x 6 paper makes envelopes that are either for 3-1/2 square cards or 3 x 4 cards. I choose the 3 x 4. Each card takes 2 pieces of the paper. You make the envelope according to the directions on the maker, Then with my paper cutter, I cut white paper 6 x 4, scored it at 3 and folded. I rounded the corners which you can do right on the envelope maker. I cut the colored paper at 3 x 4, folded it in half and taped it to the card. I stamped the thanks - one of those clear stamps, stamped a flower to match, although you could really use any stamp you wanted, had dh cut out the flower for me, (lymphedema makes scissors hard) and put the flower on with a pop dot. I used Stickles for the sparkly accent.
