How to make a homemade envelope - Back in the day when I started making cards, there was no such thing as envelope templates that you could buy so I created my own. It is still my favorite way of making them today! I never did break down and buy one neither! So here it is: Make yourself a cardboard template by first cutting the cardboard 8” high by 5.75” wide. The sides are about 5” high. Cut another piece of cardboard at 4/3/8” high x 5-3/4” wide.
Cut any kind of paper 8-1/4” square. Place the point of the cardboard template into one point of the paper.
Fold the sides in to hug the cardboard template. Pull tight and crease.
Bring up the bottom to fit tightly to the cardboard and crease.
Remove this template. Place the smaller template tight to the bottom fold.
Then fold down the top flap. Crease.
Remove template. Press all 4 folds using the bone folder.
Bend the bottom corner back.
Cut with decorative scissors.
Clip the 4 triangle corners where the two fold lines meet.
Open the bottom flap and run snail or glue along these edges and press up (except the decorative edge).
Stamp the front as you desire to match the card.
There is an excellent Fork Bow tutorial HERE.
