I received my envelope maker a few days ago, and just love it. I agree with everything in the detailed review above, but don't have a problem with the fact that it doesn't handle larger sizes of paper.
I mostly make the standard A2 size cards, so this is perfect for me. Very occasionally I make a larger card for one of my grandkids, but then it is only a 5 x7, and the board will handle the paper to make an envelope for this size card just fine.
I have the Martha Stewart board with the envelope template, and if I need to make a really large envelope, which is not at all likely, I can use it.
The ease of use is amazing! I love not having to get out my corner punch to round the corners, and having to cut out the little notches with scissors. This little gadget does it all - and does it beautifully.
Definitely this is the best tool I have purchased since I got my Cuttlebug! You get a lot of bang for your buck!
This makes envelope making so easy and quick! I've made quite a few envelopes and so far I haven't found any size discrepancies. However, the first couple of practice cards I made did score wrong. I finally figured out that you only have to measure for the first cut and score. After that you work by rotating the paper and just lining up the score line with the little point. Once I figured that out I was good to go and no more issues. Just have to read those directions real good. I would definitely recommend this product. Another plus is that it also includes a corner rounder that comes in real handy. I love how the little scoring tool stores right in the product for easy access too.
The Punch Board does exactly what it is designed for. I love the fact that everything is right on the board and I don't have to go looking for the size charts. If you are a cm user instead of inches, there is an adhesive overlay that can be applied to the board.
Making the scoring lines takes a little practice. Because you can't really feel it with your fingers, you have to learn exactly where to begin scoring at the top. Also, don't press too hard with the scoring bone if using thin paper because it would be fairly easy to cut it.
I am looking forward to making many envelopes that actually fit my cards and also on scrapbook layouts. The possibilities are endless!
I had my eye on this for awhile. I have to say, I am so glad I finally bought it. I've made envelopes by measuring and using a regular scoreboard, but this takes a fraction of the time to make a perfect envelope. Everything you need is right there in a compact package -- the score line and bone folder (which is conveniently stored in a slot on the side), the notch cutter, the corner rounder, and dozens of measurements for different sized envelopes. Easy Peasy! I will get a ton of use out of this, not only for envelopes for cards that I make, but also to make envelopes for scrapbook pages and other projects. Nice job, WRMK!
