Try pushing the punch into it's slot. Mine seemed to be slipping out of the slot and I thought it was broken, but I pushed the punch up towards the top of it and it snapped back into place!

Thanks, but that didn't work. It is acting like an "old worn out" punch ans we all know what that's like.

Are you discussing that new envelope punch.. not sure of the company... goes for about $20? do you like it??

I saw it on HSN... looked really handy.

Are you having problems? Does it work as well as the advertise?

I personally love it! I got it from HSN as well the day it debuted, used it maybe 3 times and it just fell apart.

I was really bummed, but I sent WRMK a message on Facebook and they promptly replaced it for me! Now it's perfect again and I love it. I actually use it for the cute file folder cards more than envelopes and today I read a tutorial on how to use it to make crackers .

Yes that's how mine acted too but pushing it back into position fixed it for me. I'd contact the company. I love mine !

Here are a couple of links for videos on how to use the envelope board to make gift boxes:

Video 1


Video 2


I've tried these with 12x12 paper scored at 4", and it makes quite a nice box.

These links were posted on another SCS thread about the gift box punch board, but I was thinking it would be handy to have them posted along with the other envelope board tutorials here.

You are very welcome, TLady! I don't know if you're interested, but the demo from the 2nd video has a tutorial for sale on her blog HERE for only $2 Australian - I downloaded it today and it worked out to about $1.89 US and it includes instructions for 12 different boxes, with a video link for each. I'm quite happy with it

Oh that's Sam! She makes amazing custom boxes too. In Britain they call custom made- "besoke," so Sam's are bespoke boxes.

I am delighted to hear that, Kristen. I've been worried that you wouldn't ever make any envelopes....And you were the one who started this whole ginormous thread with 850 posts a year ago! You sure know how to get a conversation going!

I finally used mine to make envelopes for my Thanksgiving cards The cards were 4"-ish by 6"ish. I was able to make an envelope to fit without any problem.

Since I make cards in various sizes, I'm really happy with this tool.

Default Envelope punch board paper

Hi All,

Can anyone recommend the best paper to use when creating envelopes with the punch board? I seem to be having an issue with the paper ripping or cracking when I score it. I'm not using heavy pressure, but it still seems to be causing me issues. Any suggestions on specific paper that everyone uses would be very helpful. I have several cards that need envelopes and would like to utilize my punch board more.
Thanks for the help!

Mine actually came with a paper pack; it's 12x12 cardstock, but on the thin side.

I don't use cardstock. I've pulled out all my thin scrapbook paper and score lightly and have no problems. Think of weight of the paper as the same as envelopes you would buy. A good thing is that I was not using the thin paper so it gives me a way to use it up.

If you use the envelope board to make boxes then use regular cardstock. There are some cardstock, especially if they have a shiny coating, that cracks no matter what I do.

SOMEONE, on this thread recommended using 24 lb./weight paper for envelopes---they come out like the kind you would buy. That's what I bought & I LOVE IT!!! Check Wal-Mart! AND when making your envelopes, do what has been said before, use a light hand when scoring!

I have quite a few of the large "stack packs" of patterned paper, the kind that has 180 sheets and costs about $20. I usually get them on sale at Hobby Lobby for 50% off, and Michaels and Joann's carry this kind of paper, too. The paper is a thinner weight and works beautifully for envelopes. You can put the pattern inside, and have a white outside for the address. If you are adventuresome, you can put the pattern outside, and use a label for the address.

Even if you only get one envelope per sheet, envelopes are a bargain. You can get 500 out of a ream of paper and at Walmart 24 lb. is under $5. I use the 110 lb. cardstock at walmart that is $5.48 for 150, which is also a bargain for 150 envelopes.

Thanks to everyone for your great suggestions. I'll have to check out that lighter weight paper at Walmart. Sounds like that will be a good place to start.

HELP, Ladies! HELP! QUICK!

Sure hope you get an answer QUICK because I am in the same boat with you!! I need a bunch of envelopes for a 4 1/4 X 6 1/4 and have tried a bunch of different markings and nothing has worked so far. I would love to use the printer paper also but I have even tried the 8 7/8 square from a 12 X 12 and it was a bit too big. Ugg.

I was also in need of a bit of help.
I was trying to make envelopes for the inside of my 6x6 paper pads. You know...to put the scraps in to keep inside the cover.
I am not able to make one just right. It is either too wide or a bit too short for 6 inch scraps to fit in.
Has anyone made a 6x6 that is actually 6 inches and not bigger to fit a 6 inch card?

Valerie

I just made one that is perfectly square and cut a piece of cs to 6 X 6 and it was like a perfect fit. (It was probably 1/16" bigger to hold more than one piece of paper but if it was right on the 6 X 6 it would be hard to get anything in it.) I am using the We R Mem. Keepers board and I used the dimensions for the 6 X 6 card. Love this little gadget.

And, Gale, I tried everything and I couldn't get one to work out of an 8 1/2 X 11 sheet of paper. Had to give in and use a 12 X 12. But I had a huge stack of white that I had removed from scrapbook pockets when I made pages that were tight. Still hoping someone comes up with one but I don't see how it will work. I went to the internet and found an equation that works for all sizes, using the score pal.
It was at:

http://www.scor-pal.com/envelope/Sco...20tutorial.pdf

I felt the width was perfect but it was a single sheet card so it had a bit of 'play' in the top so I subtracted 1/4" from the measurement for the second score line. It's a perfect fit. I just made 30 envelopes in a short time.

So many of my finished envelopes just don't line up right. I am getting very discouraged with this tool.

Sharon, besides the standard rule of being very careful about the initial measurement and the lining up with the scores, you might want to try this. After the initial punch and score, turn your paper 180 degrees and measure and score the opposite end. Then proceed the normal way with lining up and scoring the remaining two sides.

I am very careful in my measurements, but the "corners" of the paper don't meet evenly and often the card is not the exact size it should be.

I like the turn 180 method too. I noticed that although I was careful that my envelopes are more in squared off if I measure th opposite sides.

A word to the wise:

Some of my envelopes are made with very dark paper; so I need a label for the address. I cut some Cricut decorative labels from adhesive cardstock and thought that would be a nice alternative. The first card that went through the mail (with a check, no less!) almost got lost in the postal system. The label got caught in their machines. Fortunately, it did reach its destination, just a few days late with an explanation from the post office. I've gone back to using the regular computer adhesive labels to play it safe. If I use a cardstock label again, I must remind myself to brayer or burnish it as well.
