I've played with my toy and I like it. The slightly larger non-traditional sizing for the A2 is good if you have a card with embellishments on it and need the room but the measurements for a typical A2 provided on here are just fine for making one in a similar size to the envelopes available commercially. I typically make A2 but have been stepping outside my comfort zone and have been making the odd square card. I find a 5X5 square card a bit tiny and a 6X6 square card a tad large, so I'd prefer a 5.5 square card. I avoided square cards because the cost of the envelopes are pricy. I was surprised that there are no dimensions on the board for this size. I'm sure with a bit of trial and error, I'll find the right combination of paper size and score zone to make an appropriate envelope.

My biggest challenge is getting the biggest envelope possible out of a piece of letter and a piece of legal typing paper! I might even resort to buying some of the next size up (ledger - 11X17). A box of 500 sheets of ledger size is $15.51 at my local Staples (3 cents per sheet). I can't see using 12X12 cardstock or designer paper for all cards. At minimum, even on sale, I've typically paid at least 10 cents/sheet, but usually closer to 40 cents/sheet.

There ARE dimensions on the board for the 5 1/2 x 5 1/2".....Paper cut at 9x9 and score first score at 4 1/2"

Leslie, I hear what you are saying about the cost factor. I am a very frugal person also. I am also able to rationalize pretty well, lol.

I usually buy the large paper stack packs of pattern paper when they are on sale half-price at Hobby Lobby or Michaels. You get 180 sheets for $10. That comes to about 5-1/2 cents per sheet.

There are usually many of the patterns that I can use to make cards. So I tell myself I've saved money by not buying a pack of designer paper for card making. Then I use up the other pages not suitable for cards, to make envelopes.

Don't feel stupid. You can feel happy that now you don't have to try to figure it out! And... I once spent an hour looking for a set of nesties that were right were they were supposed to be!

Call me difficult if you like! But I wanted to make an envelope size that wasn't on the board. I'm wondering if anyone has worked out a formula for different sizes. Probably not ......!

Just ordered mine from Fotobella yesterday - so excited! As to earlier comments on the patterned envelopes making it through the mail okay: It doesn't matter what the envelope or package looks like - just the LABEL OR ADDRESSING SPACE. As long as it's clear and uncluttered, you'll be fine. You don't even have to have an envelope or box - you can mail a soda bottle or tennis shoe as long as it's clearly labelled, LOL! (Of course, you'll pay a bit more for postage, because it can't go through the scanners...)

I figure there's enough options (66 sizes) shown on the unit that there wouldn't be much more a person could possibly want to do that isn't already listed. Anything bigger than what is listed would require paper larger than 12X12.

I looked at the change in the increments with the square cards and don't see a specific pattern there.

The increase the starting square of paper for a 3x3 card to a 4x4 card is a difference of 1 5/8 inches, yet from a 4x4 to a 5x5 is 1 1/4 inches, and from a 5X5 to a 6X6 is 1 3/8 inches; so no specific trend there.

Similarly, the increase in the first score line for a 3x3 to a 4x4 is 7/8, then from 4x4 to 5x5 is 5/8, and 5x5 to 6x6 goes to 5/8 as well.

Still excited about my new board! How about the rest of you? Are you using it? I have been making matching envies now for most of my cards.

Still using mine too! It's my most happy purchase in quite a while! I'm sure glad that those that have waited forever are finally getting their boards.

I was wildly using mine this past weekend, getting an envy for each of those weird sized cards I have made over the years. Been wondering if all those numbers on the board's chart will wear off over time.....

I have a large printout of the chart on the board that I printed and have it hanging at my craft table. So I don't really touch the numbers of the board. I think we are safe. Besides, if they start showing up in local stores, you can always get a back up! LOL I did that with my Big Shot. I found a Sizzix Vintaj for $24.97 on clearance at Michaels! It's in the box for now, but if my Big Shot goes cafooooeey I have a back up!

Me, three! I'm still loving mine and so happy I have it.

I'm one of those people that never lets a holiday get by without sending cards.

My parents are both gone now, so on Mother's and Father's Day, I always send cards to all my friends and family who are mothers and fathers.

I made about 16 Father's Day cards. (Link below if you'd like to take a look. I think they are funny and cute.) Look at the front and the verse inside, too.

Anyhow, I used my handy-dandy envelope punch to make the envies for the cards. I went through several of my stack packs of patterned paper, and picked out the "kind of drab, not too girlie papers" to make my envelopes.

Since most of my cards are 5 x 7 I need larger text weight paper for envelopes. If pattern paper isn't right for the project, I would like to have solid color sheets available. I did buy a pack of 10 x 10 sheets from Marco's Paper, but I wondered if there are any 12 x 12 stacks out there with just solid color text weight paper..... Does anyone make/sell that?

I hear you. I've been making a lot of A2 size from 12 x 12 paper, which uses an 8" square, so I have those 4" strips left over. I finally cut them into squares and keep a stack of them by my computer to jot things down.

I also have a stack in the kitchen. They are great for making my grocery lists. I can find the little patterned square in my purse when I get to the store.

They also make ugly, but useful disposable bookmarks, lol.

I hear you

I'm getting ready for a garage sale and I just cleaned out my paper. I have a huge stack of the ugly paper I set aside for envelopes. It feels good to know I'll use instead of selling it for pennies.

take your scraps (pretty or ugly) and make a very simple card to go with the envelope. If you do not want to use donate to a group or nursing home or the troops.

So sorry you are in pain, but glad you have your wonderful gadget to look forward to!

I only had sciatic nerve pain when I was pregnant, and it went away afterwards, thank goodness. It is no fun. I still remember it. Hope you get some relief soon.

I got mine and was thrilled - until I went to try it out and found I had one with INCORRECT MEASUREMENTS on it. Wondered why in the world the envelopes didn't come out correct. I'm still waiting for the correct decal to put over the markings on the board so I can use it. TOTALLY FRUSTRATING!

While you are waiting, here is a link if you would like to print off the corrected chart. Also, if you want to make a standard A2 size envie, cut your paper 8-1/8" square, and score at 3-1/2.

The corrected chart STILL shows the A2 size as 4-1/2" x 5-1/2", which is not the correct size for A2. None of us can figure that one out! Everywhere you look, the A2 size is 4-1/4" x 5-1/2".

I made the cutest envelope today! I have a story to tell. My granddaugters (ages 3 and 5) were here one day to visit. Also here was my niece (age 21). My niece told the girls she was going to be away all summer working at a camp and asked the girls "will you send me a letter while I'm gone?" The youngest one was so excited. "yes, but what letter do I send?" She asked as she ran out into the kitchen. She grabbed a small container I had on a shelf near the fridge and ran back into the room. In the container?? A bunch of "letters" she uses on my refrigerator!! We laughed so hard because she thought that was the kind of letter my niece wanted her to send while she was away! So darned cute! So, the story continues, today we got some scrabble letters out that I use on cards and the girls each scribbled some things on paper, put a few butterflies and flowers and stars on them and each taped the letter of their first name to their paper! Now I can't wait to hear from niece to see if she got their "letters" !!

Just wondering, RiverIsis,

Since you are the one who started this huge thread with now nearly 700 replies - do you have an envelope punch yet? If not, are you going to get one?

So, I have not read all the entries... but I picked one up at my LSS last week. They had a bunch some in for orders, and two folks had picked theirs up elsewhere, so i was able to grab one without waiting. Lucky me.
Once I found that A2 cards take 8 x8 inch paper, I was able to get rid of an entire package of 8x8 paper I have not been very wild about. So delighted to find a new use for that paper.
And today I made a 6 x6 card for a challenge, and VOILA, I was able to whip out an envelope in a matter of moments.
Love this thing! Best invention ever!

I purchased one on the weekend. WOW.....how good is this tool!!! I have made heaps of envelopes using all the papers from paper pads that get left behind. It is especially good for using up papers that only have pattern on one side - white on the outside, and not so great pattern on the inside. So easy to use. Best money I have spent in a long time ($30 US here in Australia - but still worth it). Highly recommend!!!

If anyone is in the Portland, OR area and wants one, Craft Warehouse in Gresham has a huge display full of them. I got mine last night during a 20% off everything in the store sale. Craft Warehouse is a family-owned regional chain of stores that sell really nice paper craft things (and fabric, yarn, beads, etc.). I am going to miss them so much when I move to Canada. Anyway there are also stores in Salem & Medford, OR, Vancouver, Yakima, Kennewick, & Wenatchee, WA, and Meridian, ID. It might be worth calling them to see what they have in stock if you are close enough to make the trip. It probably won't be the only thing you buy, at least I can never get out of there with just one thing.

I just bought mine this week, but just wondering if anyone has the measurements for the European size C6 envelope? It's all well and good having it, but you US ladies have weird sized cards and envies. Lol.

My board came with a metric sizing chart sticker, and I know it's from the updated production run. What is the metric sizing of a C6 envelope? I can check for you - I've got it in front of me right now.

I found this on an internet chart:

C6 114 x 162 centimeters, or

4 1/2 x 6 3/8 inches

For A5 sheet folded in half, A4 sheet folded in quarters; Very common size

International Envelope Sizes

Don't know if anyone else has encountered this, but I thought I'd share. (A2 size)

After using my new envelope punch board, I went to the P.O. to mail a few things, including the card sportin' my envie.

I didn't know whether to laugh or be annoyed when they tried to charge me extra for that envelope (contents were flat). When I asked why the upcharge, the employee told me that "square envelopes cost extra." (that I knew already). I pointed out that it really isn't square, just close; she measured to her satisfaction, harumphed, and charged me regular, first-class postage.

So, guess the moral of the story is that, if you're making A2 size envies, be sure the P.O. knows they are NOT exactly square, and to charge accordingly.
