Tip: Envelope Punch Board

Stampin’ Up!’s  Envelope Punch Board (133774) is a great tool for custom-making envelopes in 66 different sizes.  In fact, you can create your own envelopes from our double-sided Designer Series Paper, cardstock and vellum.  Instructions are printed on the board, along with a sizing chart.  

To use:  simply select the envelope size, trim the paper once, and follow the grid printed on the board to punch the envelope notches. Finally, score and fold the envelope using the included bone folder, which is conveniently stored on the side of the board.  There is even a corner rounder punch located on the opposite site of the board to add that finishing touch. 

Tip:  When scoring, insert the “pointy tip” of the bone folder into the slot, and pull diagonally outward along the scoring track.  The pointy tip seems to catch the scoring track better than the “knife-edge” of the bone folder.

I love multi-purpose tools, and the Envelope Punch board is so useful in many ways.  The same company both Stampin’ Up Envelope Punch Board and the We R Memory Keepers’ version.  Therefore, you will find great ideas for lots of other uses on Pinterest — such as coin envelopes, file folder cards, gift card holders, treat boxes, baskets and bows.

Below is a 4-minute video on how to use the Envelop Punch Board.

Until next time, sending you crafting hugs and inspiration wishes!
