How to Make a Paper Envelope DIY with We R Memory Keepers Punch Board

This time of year is my favorite for sending snail mail.  More than Christmas cards, I love sending lavish Valentine's with doily hearts, glitter and layers of pinks and red.  Making envelopes is another fun paper craft I love, but it's never been easier than this tutorial.

Supplies needed:

Paper  (regular copy paper, old magazine pages, old cereal boxes, cardstock, scrapbook paper...)

We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board

My punch board is from Stampin' Up, I bought it years ago.  We R Memory Keepers makes it.  This punch board makes envelope making a breeze--check out this video for the full tutorial:

The board is complete with everything needed plus all the instructions for every size envelope!  Some genius put this together!
To make a regular A2 size envelope--the size to fit a half sheet of paper folded in half, you need an 8x8 square paper.  The board tells you the size of paper to fit in the envelope, the size to cut the paper for the envelope and where to begin the first punch, in this case: 3 1/2 inch.
Remove the scoring tool from the side of the punch board.
Place the paper in the punch so the left corner is at the 3 1/2 inch mark.

Press the button and score down the side.
Now turn the paper to the left and line up the score line with the score line marker on the board.
Once lined up, push the button and score the line.  Rotate the paper and repeat the process.
Until all 4 edges have been punched and scored.
Then turn the board around and insert the tips into the punch and press down to round all the corners.
That's it!  It makes a flawless envelope every single time!  It fits the folded card perfectly.
Fold in the side flaps first.
Then fold up the bottom flap and tape onto the smaller flaps.
Then insert the Valentine, party invitation, thank you note, or whatever...then tape it shut and send!
The best part is that you can make any size envelope desired and the board tells you what size to cut the paper and which mark to start the punching.  It's perfection!  I love tiny envelopes!
