folds and flaps (SCS)

I dnd't really intend to do all the challenges in the Splitcoast Love Fest 2013, but here I am trying to get the last three done!

Love Fest 2013D sponsored by Scor-pal is looking for flaps or folds.  OK.  How 'bout both?

Start with your Aunt's birthday approaching quickly.  Pick a card from your stash and grab the set of rainbow cards you just made (but haven't posted all of yet).  Cuz of course, to get one rainbow you had to die cut 7 different colors.  And of course you can't throw all the rest away.  So you made rainbow cards.  I digress.

See how many cards you can get into a padded mailer for the lowest postage.  And that will fit through the mailbox slot so that you don't have to go to the post office which is a sure way to ruin your day.

Take set of cards and a piece of PP to your scoring board.

Use the envelope making guide that comes with the board (see that triangle thing?) for the very first time.  Duh.

Use score tape to glue the envie sides together and leave the flap unglued so Auntie can use it to store your purty cards.

Dress it up with  a scrap of ribbon and little tag (still totally mailable, mind you) and be proud of yourself.  You've got some flaps, some folds and somethin' sweet for Auntie.  Bye.  I'm off to the mailbox.

Thanks for looking.

Supplies for envelope:
Paper: PP and tag K& Co.
Stamps:  PTI
Ink :Memento
Tools: scoring board and bone folder
Other: score tape, ribbon

Wonderful tute, Maria! And a stunning gift for Auntie! She will love it!! But can you seriously mail it with the bow and tag like that? I don't think we can do that here, more's the pity. How wonderful to gather your mail and find that lovely creation!

This is so pretty! I love making envelopes with my Scoreboard and also with an Enveloper, too. I just realized that I have that same dp, but I've always used the striped side. Must see if I have more. The side you used is way better.
