Box Envelopes

Hi Guys!

Having a larger cutting machine means that I can now cut larger items such as envelopes and boxes in one go, yay! So, today I have a square box envelope cut file to hold your dimensional cards.  If you don’t have an electronic cutting machine, don’t worry, I have a photo tutorial on how to make them by hand using a scoring board here.

If you rotate the cut file 45 degrees you will waste less card but I have left the cut file at this angle deliberately so it is easier to size your envelope to match your card before you turn it and cut. I cut envelopes for 6 inch and 5 inch square cards, the 6 inch envelope is half an inch deep and the 5 inch version is slightly shallower.

    Sweet. Have been doing this by hand for a year now. This will make it so much easier. Thanks Bird. Hope you have a wonderful New Year.

    Oh my gosh…I received a Christmas card in an envelope like this…the card was amazing, but I was so taken with the darned envelope and was going to try to muddle through to make one…I have been saved LOL!!! Perfect timing!!!

    Love this box envelope! Thank you so much! Here’s a little thing I found out quite by accident: If you reduce it to where the outside dimensions read of the entire envelope reads 5.285 x 5.285, it fits a square of Ghirardelli Chocolate perfectly! I used a full sheet of Scrapbook 12×12 paper and got 1 5×5 box envelope and 5 of the candy box envelopes! I used printed paper and they look so cute!!!

    awesome! thank you. I was actually looking for one a couple weeks ago and couldn’t find one. I hope these will ship your New Years curve card well :)

    Do you know if costs extra postage to mail a box envelope the size of a greeting card? I have always wondered how people mail the beautiful layered cards too thick for a standard envelope…

    Fabulous! I was just thinking about something like this so that the lovely ribbon bows would not get smashed. Thank you!

    This is excellent! I just want to know how I could convert the dashed cut lines to score lines now. I’d prefer this but not sure how to do this on my cutter using SCAL3? …Anyone out there can help please??

    Wow! Thank you so much for this file. Most of the cards I make are 6X6 and I have to make boxes with the envelope punch board which is very inconvenient…its great for envelopes but not boxes. This is truly a Godsend.
