We’re just back from our Road Trip that I mentioned in my April post. We had a wonderful time exploring the North West of our state and even managed to get as far as Darwin in the Northern Territory. All up we covered over 12,000 kilometers in the 11 weeks in our Camper Trailer.
I pre scheduled my regular weekly posts while away and you may not have noticed I’ve been gone! Despite a wonderful time away it’s lovely to be home and living under Brick and Tile again instead of Canvas !
Back to basics for this week’s post…..
When I made the Prime Number Card for Dad’s Birthday in June, I made an envelope to fit the 5 x 7 inch card size. I’ve already shared a cut file previously for another 5×7 envelope here which fits on letter size or A4 paper and is perfect for printing out.
However, this time, I was using 12 inch paper to match the card and gift wrap and I wasn’t restricted to the smaller printer friendly paper size , so today I’m sharing the cut file which makes use of the larger paper size.
You could cut the design from any 12 x 12 inch paper you have on hand.
When cut, fold the side flaps in and apply double sided tape or glue to the inside of the bottom flap.
Don’t cover the curved middle bit though or it will stick to inside of the envelope.
Fold the bottom flap up to secure
Pop the card in and seal the envelope with double sided tape, adhesive, stickers or a wax seal.
See how all the lines align on my striped paper in the picture above. I’d like to say it was because I did something very tricky and clever, but alas, it was just pure coincidence and good luck!
Here’s how I used the envelope to coordinate with the card and Gift wrap. You could add a contrast address label or decorate it more.
I didn’t use the fold lines – I prefer to fold the envelope manually or with my scoring board. I’ve included both ways – with or without the dotted lines, in the cutting files.
