Any Size Envelope

Any Size Envelope

Learn how to create an envelope for any size card.


  • Scoring Tool
  • Paper trimmer or knife, ruler and cutting mat
  • Corner rounder
  • Adhesive - double sided tape or glue
  • Scissors
  • Cardstock (double-sided cardstock and designer paper work beautifully for this)
  • Finished card


  1. Step 1

    Check the length of the paper for correct size by flipping the finished card twice over the cardstock. Leave about 2" extra. No need to be exact. Trim excess if necessary.
  2. Step 2

    Rotate the cardstock leaving the card in place. Lay the card approximately 1" from the side.
  3. Step 3

    Trim the opposite side so that there is 1" of cardstock on either side of the card.
  4. Step 4

    Lay the paper with the card on scoring board so that the card is centered at the top of the board. Score1/8" away from both edges of the card.

    Black lines show score lines used here.
  5. Step 5

    Rotate the cardstock with the card in place on the scoring board to score the flaps. Slide the card up to the top of the scoring board. Score one notch 1/8" away from both edges of the card.
  6. Step 6

    The cardstock should now have four score lines.

  7. Step 7

    Cut out the four corners as shown.
  8. Step 8

    Round 4 corners of the cardstock.
  9. Fold the flaps down and round the 4 remaining corners.
  10. Step 9

    Apply adhesive to the lower flap.
  11. Step 10

    Finished! Embellish your envelope if desired.

    This works with any size card. However if the card is 5x5 or greater, a larger paper must be used- even a grocery bag, heavy weight gift wrap or legal paper.
