Just received this and I'm excited to use it. It looks easy enough...

To address the question I see others asking, this template/stencil makes 4 different sizes of envelopes:

2-3/8" x 3-15/16" (6 x 10 cm) [largest]

2" x 3-1/4" (5 x 8.4 cm)

1-7/16" x 2-5/8" (4 x 6.7 cm)

1-3/16" x 2" (3 x 5 cm) [smallest]

Face it: where else are you going to find tiny rectangular envelopes made from gorgeous papers? What you DO with them might remain a mystery to the unimaginative, but I love this template. It's a great value and straightforward to use. I wish the end flaps were a little larger, to improve adhesion and envelope proportions.

A few caveats.... The template requires some very precise cutting to get the tiny curves just right. Most liquid glues tend to bleed through thin paper or smear onto the outside of the finished envelope; I've gotten my best results with high-quality glue tape. You don't have the option of creating a gummed or "peel-and-stick" closing edge for the envelope closure flap. You have to choose between leaving it open, or you seal it permanently with a sticker or glue. Because I sometimes give these to people as gifts, I dearly wish that someone would market "peel-and-stick" tape rollers.

Tips: "Disappearing" ink is great if you want to eliminate template markings on your paper. Use a ruler to align the tape with the flap edges. If you're using glue, just place some scrap paper underneath the surface that you're gluing. Just make sure the tape or glue reaches to edge of the flaps. Press very firmly and hold for at least 15 seconds, depending on the weight of the paper. If you use heavy paper (e.g., card stock), keep in mind that you may not be able to get the glue to hold--you can try double-sided tape, but you'll have to cut it carefully to size. Keep in mind that there's no simple way of sealing the envelope except with glue or a sticker. I've tried temporary (waxy) adhesives, but they generally make a mess of the paper.

In general, though, this is a generally fun product to use, and an ideal gift for anyone with mild OCD.

I love this little template! I've made SO many little envelopes with this and scrapbook paper. Great for sprucing up little notes by putting them into these adorable envelopes. Also good for packaging charms or other small gifts! :)

These are awesome. You can make little envelopes ridiculously fast with these, especially paired with the lovely kuretake glue pen. Thick and sturdy, this guides your pen or pencil easily. Someone complained of theirs being bent - mine came packed in a thick cardboard envelope inside the bubble mailer and came out perfectly flat. The best part is how you can seethrough the template to get the pattern of the paper exactly where you want it. Very nice - I'll be buying another kuretake glue pen to keep up with all my envelope production.

This is really amusing. My daughter and I find good pictures in magazines and make envelopes out of them. Also fun to make envelopes from wrapping paper. Perfect with the Kuretake glue pen.
