Designing A Custom Sized Envelope With A Tuck Tab Closure In Canvas Workspace

You like making unique cards BUT, what about the envelope to put it in?

Nay fret pet for in this week’s Scan N Cut Saturday video I shall reveal a simple and quick way of creating custom sized envelopes with a tuck tab closure.

I will be working in the installable version of Canvas Workspace however this could also be achieved in the online version too using the same tools.

This is a pic of the finished cutting file layout. It has the main outline, the scorelines and the tab/tuck feature ready to go.

This can be cut from any sort of paper or cardstock depending on what you want to achieve.

I found that it works REALLY well with double-sided cardstock as you can then fussy cut an area to feature on the front or over the tab. You can also decide which side of the cardstock shows on the outside and which shows on the inside.

Here are some examples.

Nice, ain’t they?!

Anyhoo, video up in a just a mo. Quick word about resources first.

  1. Awesome and clever tutorial. I love this. Normaly I am making them by hand but I see here also other purposes such as an envelope for a booklet or a mini version for a giftcard. Thank you so much for this great tutorial John and have a great Sunday.
