Our Project of the day is an envelope-box made for the gate-fold card(here) in our previous post.
The envelope-box was made using the enveloplus board of Crafter’s companion.
A5 gate fold card/ card according to your choosing
Enveloplus board,its score tool and its manual
Cardstock: size is specified on the manual of the Enveloplus
STEP 1: place the card on the enveloplus board, and score one end on the channel as stated in the enveloplus manual’s chart( for the specific card and depth of envelope/envelope-box required). Score the other sides using the stated channel/score-line in the manual for the envelope/envelope-box that is being made.
Remember that when making envelopes, the/each opposite ends are usually scored using thesame score-line that makes them thesame size.
STEP 2: fold the score lines. If you take a closer look at the picture, you will notice that the upper/north and lower/south flaps are thesame size; also they are larger while the sides/east and west are thesame sizes and they are smaller.
STEP 3: cut the slots to enable the box to be formed. Glue the flaps, except the upper flap which is left for opening.
