It's Wednesday and almost time for me to be heading up to Anaheim and CHA. I've been busy getting ready to go and not stamping much. However, over at SCS in the Scor-Pal forum there was an interest in the envelobox that Diana (creator of the Scor-Pal) designed. So after a bit of fiddling with the measurements, here is the finished example. It will be coming with me to CHA and the Scor-Pal booth, along with an assortment of projects I've done with the Scor-Pal.
Anyway, here are the directions:
Paper size 8 1/4” square. Use a heavy weight double sided paper.
In each step pay attention to the placement of the point of the paper.
Align top point at 6". Ensure bottom point is also on the same groove. Score at 3" and 9".
Move point to 6 1/4"". There isn’t a mark (line up between 6" and 6 1/2"). Score again at 3". Move point to 5 3/4", score at 9".
Turn the paper a quarter turn, align top point at 6". Ensure bottom point is also on the same groove.
Score at 3 1/2", 3.66" (the inverted [upside down] triangle) and 8 1/2". (three scores in all).
Move point to 6 1/4". There isn’t a mark (line up between 6 and 6 1/2”). Score at 8 1/2" and 11."
The score lines intersect along the edges. At this point cut out a "V" shape, cutting to the inner score line of the intersection. Cut on the outside of the score lines.
Carefully fold each score line on one side. You are forming the edges of the box. Fold the remaining 3 sides in the same manner Fold and form box. The score at the 11" mark is the bottom flap. This will tuck in. Glue the bottom flap to form an envelobox. Tuck in the folded edge. Insert your card, close and glue the top flap.
Double sided papers work great for these as the outside and the inside are both attractive, and there is enough patterned paper left over to create 2 or more cards and decorate the outside of the envelobox. This completed box fit 2 moderately embellished cards and envelopes. It's wrapped with a length of organdy ribbon for presentation and to keep the back flap closed. You could certainly use envelope glue, a sticker, or make a wax impression as well.
Well, as much as I would like to post between now and when I leave for CHA, it's not going to happen, the list is much too long! I'm going to be gone 5 days, no kids, no hubby, meeting lots of friends, and having a blast with Diana in the Scor-Pal booth!
Until I get back, Happy Creating!
