(What works best is extending the lines with a ruler and cutting with a trimmer or paper cutter; and double check that your final square is true to size. Tracing around the template actually gives you a square a little bigger than you want.)

Photo 3 is the completed envelope. This one is just a tiny bit wonky, because I threw it together in a hurry and didn't double check to make sure my final square was really 8". But see how the stripe is where I wanted it?

Any other questions, just give a yell I've only done one template for my A2 envies, since that's what I usually make, but this should work for all the sizes.
Perfect! I was cutting my paper down to 8x8 first! Silly me. Thanks for taking the time to post pictures. You're super!
