Make Your Own A-2 Envelopes

Today is Throw Back Thursday and I wanted to share a fun and useful tutorial.  Tammy Hobbs, one of our past design team members, shared how to make an A-2 Envelope with liner. 

First let's gather some suppliesLunch Bag Kraft CardstockVintage Dictionary PagesStylus
Paper Trimmer
Corner Rounder
Scissors (Not pictured)AdhesiveA Scoring Board

Cut your Lunch Bag Kraft Cardstock to 7 3/4" by 10 ".
Take the long ends and Score at 1" on both sides.
Now turn it so the long side is at the top and Score at 2 1/2" and 7".
Fold all your score lines.
Cut out the rectangles at all 4 corners. 
For the liner, cut your Vintage Dictionary Pages at 5 1/2" x 5 ".

Use adhesive to put your liner inside the envelope. 

The part not pictured and is optional is rounding the corners of your flaps. This is the time to do this before you add adhesive to the lower portion only of the side flaps. (About where the liner stopped and where you see the adhesive sitting. 
Bring your bottom flap up and you are finished! :-)

Thanks Tammy for a great tutorial!
