Today's project is a cute coin envelope using the Envelope Punch Board.
|Here's the front of the envelope.|
|Here's the back of the closure. Trimming off the pointy flaps gives this the correct look for a coin envelope. I also love this type of closure, isn't it fun?|
|The brads go through the DSP, so I've added some circle on the back so your card (or money) won't be dented or scratched by the back of the brads.|
To make these coin envelopes, I used a 6" x 6" piece of DSP. I punched and scored it (with the Envelope Punch Board) on one side at 2-5/8", then on the other 3 sides, I lined up the pointer with the scored line, then punched and scored. After you punch and score on all 4 sides, crease your lines, then trim 7/8" from the top and bottom flaps (the smaller flaps), fold in the sides and trim one so it will have a straight edge, then glue together (make sure you don't get glue on the inside). The outside circles for the closure are 1/2" and the inside circles are 3/4". Tie a piece of Linen Thread around one of the brads, underneath the 1/2" circle, and trim off the short end, then wrap around other brad in a figure eight.
