Top Tip Tuesday #12

Make your own card blanks and envelopes

Don't get me wrong, I do love my shop bought card blanks as they are so quick and easy. I tend to buy a the 5"x7" size and sometimes if that size wont work for me I just chop it down to fit what I need. But sometimes you just want a one off coloured card or something a bit different, so I take a piece of card and make my own.  I simply use my Fiskars paper trimmer to cut down a piece of card stock as required and then score a fold line down the middle, and there you have it, a perfectly sized card blank.
I now hear you cry, but how do I get an envelope to fit!? ell, the Envelope punch board by We R Memory Keepers is an excellent tool for creating envelopes of any size which is my tool of choice. I find it so easy to use and it even has a size chart on it so that you can make various sizes of envelope. Also, if you have a little nosy around the internet, you’ll find there’s many more things you can make with it too like boxes, bows and much more!


  1. My WRMK Envelope Punch Board is the best thing I've ever bought! I love it. Xx
