Handmade Envelopes

I mentioned on my FB this morning that I had made some unusually large graduation cards yesterday. (can't show the cards 'cause the recipients {or at least moms of the recipients} *might* be reading this blog post! come back next week and I'll have them posted after they've been received)

 Anyhoo, I thought it would be okay to at least show the envelopes. What a process this was...a bit more difficult than I first thought. I guess I thought since I had the MS Score Board with it's handy-dandy envelope making tool the envelopes would just pop right out! NOT! A lot of measuring and mathematical skills go into figuring out the dimensions for odd shaped cards. Have I mentioned I'm NOT A MATHEMATICALLY INCLINED PERSON??!! However, I am a DETERMINED person and that worked in my favor today! I give you...drumroll please...handmade envelopes!






Definitely a learning experience. And that's what it's really all about...learning and growing in our craft...and in life. GO LEARN SOMETHING!

  1. The envelopes look great! I usually find the scor pal formula easier myself, but these do look nicer.
