Thursday Tutorial with Michelle

Hi! I know a lot of you probably have this cool little tool, but I can't believe it took me so long to get one! A lot of us make cards-and how many times have you had to abandon a card because the envelope was too big for your Cricut to cut?  Not any more-there are at least two companies that make Envelope Punch boards-Stampin' Up & We R Memory Keepers. Here is a video from Stampin' Up that demonstrates the ease of which you can make a custom envelope!

This is so handy to have to make an envelope for an odd sized card! You can make over 66 different sizes of envelopes, and there are quite a few YouTube videos for making boxes, file folder cards, etc.  It's really great to use up all those papers that you'll never make a card or layout with, like these:

Just a little hint-on really thin paper, be very gentle with your score lines, or your envelope will tear all by itself!

Remember, this would make a great gift for yourself or someone else!

  1. Well, how cool is that!! I love it! I think I know what gadget I HAVE to get next. Thanks for sharing this video.

  2. Once I saw this video, I knew I had to have one of these. So I went out and bought one, and I am in love. So easy to use and a great addition to my card making tools.

  3. Thank you for posting the envelope punch video. I got one for Christmas, just watched this video, which was a big help. Thank you!
