Easy Envelopes! (with Greensneakers)

Howdy! I was so excited to find a We R Memory Keepers Punch and Envelope board at the stamp show last month only 2 problems, they were sold out and only taking orders and when I want to try it the punch felt sticky and I was less than thrilled with the results. Of course it could have been crappy paper and overuse at trade shows but I was not as over the moon about the product as I thought I would be. After I came home I had a few people on my blog ask me where to buy cheap envelopes and I replied that I either buy the 5″x7″ card/envelope multipacks of 50 when they are on sale for $5 or I simply make my own from leftover “stack” scrapbook paper with my Greensneakers Fold-a-lope templates that I bout at Joann Fabrics years ago. Since you asked here is a quick demo:

I have to admit, I am addicted to cute envelopes and ways to make them, I use my score-pal, my die-cutter and of course templates and if I saw the punch and envelope board at my local big-box craft store I’d be willing to buy it with a 50% off coupon but sometimes the best tools are the simple, inexpensive ones;) Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
