When I told you last week that I'm on a die-cut kick... well I really am on a die-cut kick. Last week I added a funky floral cut-out along the edge of an invitation pocket (and the pocket template is yours for FREE!). This week I'm adding the floral cut-outs to an envelope flap. The Martha Stewart punches are so easy to use and the results are so spectacular, that it's hard not to want to punch every piece of paper in sight. I'm using a daisy punch in this tutorial to coordinate with the bright blooms on the new Allison invitation bundle, part of the Budget Savvy Bride Collection here at Download & Print. But you can use any punch you like to coordinate with your invitations and wedding theme.
I'm a fan of Euro flap envelopes, which have the pointy flap. I think they are elegant and not like every other envelope that arrives in the mail. The straight punch will work equally well on a square flap envelope though.
This quick tutorial shows you how to punch the flap and line up the design seamlessly.
This DIY project isn't really rocket science. Use the corner punch on the pointy part of the flap first. Then finish with the straight punch on either side. I'm using an A7 envelope to pair with the Allison 5 x 7" invitation and it took two punches down each side. Line up the punches seamlessly by matching what you have already punched to the silver design on the top of the punch.
This simple project really adds something special to your invitations. It's quick. It's easy. It's inexpensive. Yet the results give such a 'WOW' vibe. Try it for yourself. Once you start punching there's no turning back!
