How to use the mini envelope template.
I just got this and there are no instructions. Maybe I should be smart enough to figure it out. Do you trace the lines, or could I use my craft knift to cut them out? If you've used this, let me know what has worked for you. Thank you, Amy Jo

I trace the lines and then cut it out with my paper snips and it works great! Otherwise you might cut the template or where it needs to be folded :) Its fun to use but I odntl ike cutting :)

I don't like cutting either and I'm afraid I wont cut straight. I'll try your way. I just got some vellum paper to make little envelopes for my scrapbook pages. aj

One suggestion I read somewhere was to trace the lines with your empressor instead of a pen/pencil. This way, you won't have to erase the lines!

I trace lightly with pencil or the vanishing pen by EK Success but I take my bone folder and score all score lines with the template in place.

I felt like such a bonehead myself when I first received my envie templates. lol I had never seen them before or used anything like them. Now I use mine all the time and the minis are next on my wish list!

I trace and cut with my snips too. I just have to make myself slowdown and be careful.

i think i read the same article about tracing with an embossing tool - i plan to do that as soon as i have my mini templates. sounds like a perfect delightful idea!!!!!
