Tiddly Ink Image - Let's Be Friends
  • On computer place image tilted as shown.
  • Print on 8.5 x 11 inch paper and remove 2.5 inches from right side of paper if image is in lower left hand corner (this makes your 8.5 inch square paper)
  • Take the 8.5 inch square piece of paper and place at 45 degree angle on scoreboard or mat.
  • Make a score mark at 3 inches (side A)
  • Flip paper and mark other side at 3 inches (side A)
  • Now score at 3 5/8 inch on each B side
  • Fold each score in - if any corners aren't aligned readjust by creating new fold marks
  • The bottom fold will have a point the point can be scored across at 3/4 inch and folded down
  • Before adhering sides use your 8.25 inch paper and score at 3.25 inches on each A side for a liner
  • On your paper cutter remove flaps and cut along bottom at a length desired for the inside of the envelope (I just make sure that when the flaps are all folded you can't see anything but pattern)
  • Adhere liner and adhere all flaps ensuring no tape will stick to your card when inserted.
  • Make card using same paper used to make envelope.
