Does anyone else have a thing about envelopes?? I DO!! I want cards that fit into them. Well the Criss Cross card didn't fit any envie's I had! So I had to make a CRISS CROSS CARD ENVELOPE!

I have never done this before so hopefully it works.....well not the envie but the printing of the file. It is a PDF file and I hope it prints out right for you guys! I made my template then made one out of plain with card stock so I would have a sturdy pattern. I have made about 4 of these today and they fit great with the criss cross cards. So now if you are wanting to mail a Criss Cross card you can make an envie to mail it in!!

This is a screen shot of what the file should look like printed off.

I did put the instructions on the pattern. So once you get it cut just score, tape and fold! POOF that easy!!

If you are wanting an recipe for envie adhesive there was one on the MB last week. I subscribed to the thread so I could find it when I needed it. I haven't made any yet but sharing the recipe anyway. I will probably just use tape......I am lazy........HA HA HA

Envelope Adhesive

6 tablespoons white vinegar
(4) 0.1 oz. packets unflavored gelatin
1 tablespoon vanilla extract (or any flavor that you like)


Bring vinegar to a boil in a small pan.
Add gelatin and stir until dissolved.
Add extract and stir until mixed.
Brush on thin layer onto back of an envelope flap...Let dry.
Moisten to apply.

Be sure to store unused portion in an air tight container!
