  2. Great tutorial. I have just been wrestling with trying to find envelopes this deep for all our beautiful embellies. Thank you so much for this really timely and wonderfully explained tutorial.

  3. Totally awesome tutorials Pam! I’m going print out all those measurements and tape it to the MS score board : ) TFS!!

  4. Hi Pam!
    I enjoyed watching your video’s. Very easy to follow. I wondered how to use that envelope thing on the Martha Stewart scoreboard. I am very much a visual person so this helps a lot.
    Hugs Maz

  5. How cool of you to come up with measurements for thicker cards! I have the Martha scorepal & have made my own evelopes a lot, but never did the “thick” ones before. And I had never left a little tab in my cut outs. Leave it to you to find something better! I printed your measurements out & have it by my scorepal.
    You’re awesome!

  6. Another great tutorial to use! Thanks a million!

  7. Hi Pam, Thank you for the wonderful tutorial on how to make the envelopes. The measurements are going to be so helpful!! I’ve printed them to keep near my scoreboard. Have a wonderful weekend!!

  9. Hi Pam, TFS all this great info! I especially appreciate the info on the paper, was looking for the right paper to make envelopes, now I know where to go and what to buy! Great video, Pam, thanks!

  10. Fabulous! Thanks! One question though, can you make a dimensional envelope for a 5″ X 7″ card also with the Martha Stewart Score Board. For me the 1/4″ deep envelope would be perfect. My email is ……….. dvmc99@yahoo.com If you don’t have time to answer, I understand, and thank you anyway.
