Now, I have looked and looked for envelopes to fit a 4x4 card and they are fairly inexpensive, but shipping is ridiculous! However, I accidentally stumbled on to a great tutorial on how to make an envelope to fit a 4x4 card using a standard Stampin' Up Medium Envelope while looking to purchase 4 1/4" x 4 1/4" envelopes. How cool is that?!? Not only is it inexpensive, but they are way cute! The Medium Envelope measures 5 3/4" x 4 3/8". To make one just simply seal the envelope and cut it so it measures 4 3/8" x 4 3/8". Next, punch a half circle on the side with the seam. Finally, using a piece of DSP measuring 3" x 4 3/8" score it at 1" (on the 3" side) and snail the 1" flap to the front of the envelope. Also, you can click here to see the original tutorial. She gives all the details with pictures.
Before I forget, I have also added a Pin It Button as the bottom of each post. This was a request as per my fabulous Mother- in- law Joyce. :) She mentioned that I should have a Pin It button, but I couldn't find one that really worked. However, this weekend I finally found something I think will work. I got it added and working I believe. Anyway, I hope everyone has a fantastic Tuesday. Take care.
