I promised you yesterday I would provide the details on how quick and easy creating the designer paper envelope above can be! This size (4 1/4 x 4 1/4) is perfect for a 4 x 4 card!
STEP 2: Create a template by carefully "dismantling" a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 envelope. I "swooped" mine from my Stampin' Up! Fresh-Cut Notes card and envelope set. It's a small sacrifice since you can use the template over and over. Use Dotto along the edges of the template to attach to the designer Paper.
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP:
I use Dotto Repositionable Adhesive (103305) to keep the "template" in
place instead of tracing it. It's ready for cutting and saves me a step.
STEP 3: Paper Snips (103579) are my favorite scissors for navigating curves. In about two minutes, you have a pretty envelope template
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIP: Be sure to line the envelope template up square with the pattern, if necessary.
STEP 4: Score, fold, adhere and say "that was so easy!"
