Scor-Pal 3x3 envelope!!! Here's how...

I recently designed a 3x3 envelope that I made on the Scor-Pal. I emailed Diana Crick, designer of the Scor-Pal and she is going to post the directions (see mine below) to her Yahoo Group, 'Scorpalpals'. Here's the link to join, http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ScorPalPals/ if you are as much in love with the Scor-Pal as I am!

Begin with 5x5 text-weight (computer) paper. Turn square so you have a diamond shape. Align top and opposite points on the first triangle groove (which is just past the 3 1/2" mark). SCORE at the first dot (2 1/8") groove. Rotate paper and repeat three more times. Fold into envelope shape.



To aid in folding the text-weight paper, I made a 3x3 template from plastic but you could easily use one made from cardstock. Place in center of scored paper and fold sides in first, secure with a drop of adhesive. Then fold bottom up and secure with adhesive. If you get a little heavy handed with the adhesive, the plastic template will keep you from gluing the envelope shut. You won't need a template if you're making a cardstock envelope.
