How to make an Envelobox

Hi everyone. Sandie here and I'd like to share with you how I make enveloboxes to accommodate bulkier embellishments on my cards. Firstly I must apologise for the quality of the photos, it's very gloomy here and impossible to get good photos.

This will make a box to suit a 5.5" card
10" x 10" piece of cardstock
Scoring Board {I use Martha Stewart}
Panel for envelobox front {optional}

Start by positioning the envelope attachment which is stored on the back of the scoring board onto the board and laying your cardstock as shown below. Ensure that the corner of the card is touching the side of the board and that it sits along the edge of the triangle. Score at 4" and 4.5"

Repeat for all 4 sides, then cut out the corners on the inside scoreline 

If you are adding a front panel to your envelobox then this should be done now

Apply double sided tape or other adhesive to the flaps as shown

 Place the cardstock, with your front panel attached, face down now and attach together the side flap and bottom flap placing the side flap underneath. It helps to slip something, like a 1/2 " thick book inside the envelobox, so that you can align the corners more easily.

 Next, tuck the other side flap in under the already adhered flaps and secure it with adhesive.

and your envelobox is completed.... 

 Thanks so much for stopping by.

  2. Great tutorial Sandie - thank you.

  3. Awesome!! Question, if you left the front blank, could you actually mail this envelobox as is?? Has Sandie tried that? Or do you just use this for hand-delivered cards?

  4. WOW! Sandie, such a nice creation! Your work is beyond words girlfriend! You are truly one of a kind, with your creativity!

    Absolutely stunningly beautiful! Thanks for the levely post & all the great pictures!

    "INKY" HUGS!
