Q: Phyllis asked: 'I would like to make envelopes to fit the little thank you notes 3" x 3" and my standard cards which are 4.5" x 4.5". Is there a tutorial please?"
A: We don't have a tutorial for that yet, but we have one planned for May of this year. Until then, check out this forum thread. It has links to several different places that might help you create your own envelopes for that size card.
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Toni has a suggestion for the Heart Box tutorial: "I loved the Heart Box so much I made one the day I saw your tutorial. I changed the top and did not use ribbon for "hinges". Instead, I just added another "side" to the top (just slightly smaller that the side on the bottom of the box) so the top now fits inside the bottom and it seems more sturdy to me. Thank you for all you contribute!"
