Easiest Ever Envelope Video Tutorial

Stampin up designer series paper promotion punch 4 x 4 envelope

Love the look of a coordinating envelope?  Need the perfect size for a 4 x 4 card?  Want it fast?  Today's Easiest Ever Envelope Video Tutorial shows you how quickly you can create a basic envelope (4 1/8" x 4 1/8") using Stampin' Up! Designer Series Paper and  the NEW Simply Scored scoring tool (available Sept. 1 in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog). 

NOTE:  I won't be able to show the Simple Scored tool until Sept. 1.  However, the video walks you through how it was used to create the envelope 🙂

  1. I love the cards and envelope. Thanks for the tutorial on the envy. I was browsing your blog and saw a card that used the lattice die and there was a Halloween card made with it and like quilting in several colors. I went to where it said there was a tutorial on it, but couldn’t find it. Can you help? I have the die and would love to do that.

  2. Thanks for the great tutorial. That is very easy to do. Will give that a try. Such a pretty card. Can’t wait to see the set & the special box. Such a great gift idea!

  3. Love the card and the envelope. The video explained it perfectly. I can’t wait to order my scoring tool and use it. I love the size of the cards and that pop of the white just really set the card off. Looking forward to the seeing the rest of the set. Thanks Mary!

  4. Dear Mary, You are so amazing and so talented. I love the tutorials l and I love the card. Thanks for sharing so much with all of us. Ellen

  5. Oh my you have a lot of patience Mary – love it! I will definitely try it when I have my patience hat on! Beautiful and colors, too! Thanks for sharing the tutorial…

  6. Everyone does this differently. Depends on how your brain works. For a square envelope, I figure 1/8″ to 1/4″ larger than the finished card. Then add 1/2″ to 1″ on each side (where it will be scored and tabs folded in–the measurement total will be for the shorter direction). For the opposite (longer) direction, again figure 1/8″ to 1/4″ larger than the finished card plus a flap (top) and fold up (bottom). When folded over the card, the top and bottom should overlap by about 1/2″ to 1″ (but you can be creative). Score the two equal sides and then flip and score for the sizes you allotted for the flap and bottom. Hugs, M

  7. I love your quick tutorials. I do make my envelopes a lot of the time. My problem is…how to determine what size to cut your paper for different sized cards. Do you have suggestions

  8. I confess….I am one of those that admires my DSP rather than cut it. THANKS for this amazing video – and this will FOR SURE help me to get the trimmer out and start creating all those WOW envelopes for the cards I make. Just know that others are going to LOVE the new Simply Scored scoring tool when it’s released on September 1st…..once again….You have hit this one out of the park Mary. Thanks for Sharing!

  9. I always learn so much from your tutorials, and this one was exception! You do such a wonderful job of making things clear and “doable.” You are amazing and I really appreciate that you take the time and effort to share your incredible tips and tricks with us! Thank you!!!

  10. Thanks for the holiday catalogue. I am SO looking forward to Sept. 1st. Great video. Those who need DSP should get some now with the special that is on now. They could make so many of these cute envelopes at a savings.

  11. I love it! Calling all the paper crafters out on our hoarding. Great way to use that designer series paper rather than admire it — should be a mantra for me! So very true.
