VIDEO | Making Envelopes

Hello there, quite a while ago Sarah mentioned to me that she struggles a little to use the WRMK Envelope Punch Board. A couple of other people have mentioned that to me too so I thought it was about time to do a video tutorial.
 
 
It is actually an easy tool to use, once you understand the basics. I like to use thick paper or thin cardstock for my envelopes. I have loads of 12x12" Bazzill cardstock so that is perfect to use. I secure the flaps of the envelope using extra strong red line tape. For the flap that the recipient opens, I either use repositionable adhesive or normal double sided tape. You can buy envelope glue but for some reason I have never liked the idea of that stuff!
 
Here is the video:
 


In the video, I used inches but it works the same for mm or cm. Once you get the hang of what measurements matter, it is quite easy and quick to use. I hope that helps those that have been struggling to use it. Thanks for visiting me and have a lovely day!

  5. Thanks Michelle. I measure, punch and score one side, then turn to the opposite side and measure, punch and score, then punch and score the other sides. I find that keeps the envelope from being distorted.

  6. Thanks for this Michelle, I'd just bought the SU one that works on the same way and although I've already used it briefly it's good to know I was doing it right!!! Rebecca x
