Over the past year, I started to make greeting cards because I realized how much of a craft supply hoarder I’ve become. There is only so many rhinestones and embellishments you can have. Now that I’m focusing on Cindy Ho Designs, I realized I need larger then average envelopes to ship vinyl sheets. Finding the right sized envelope on small quantities was nearly impossible without breaking the bank.
As I realized the need to have every size envelope available on the planet, I found the Martha Stewart Score Board isn’t fulfilling my small business needs. Then, I stumbled on the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board
- Easy to use. As long as you score the first fold accurately, then the other four sides will be accurate
- There is a measurement template on the board for easy reference for the starting paper size to the final envelope size
- If you are not accustomed to the Imperial System. A metric template sticker is included
- No corner cutting. The Martha Stewart Score Board requires to hand cut notches so they fold. This tool does it for you with it’s punch
- Easy to store. I use this tool a lot so I use a letter sorter and it stands straight up and at arms reach
- I find that the board is too short to score paper larger then the standard letter. I have to fold the paper just to get the crease required to start the second score. Not great when you are in a rush or mass producing larger envelopes.
- The A2 size envelope measurements is not accurate. Cards don’t fit the one suggested by the board. I found that for me, the best is starting with a 8 inch x 8 inch size square and starting the first score @ 3.5 inches
I love this tool. After figuring out the cons, this is my most used paper crafting tool aside from my Fiskars Folding Rotary Paper Trimmer. It’s nice that I can use regular scrapbook paper (which I’ve also hoarded) and find a practical use for them with little waste
