Every Other Tuesday

So, how about a tutorial AND template for the first Every Other Tuesday event? Here is a little envelope template to get you started: You can download it be clicking here. (You'll need Adobe Acrobat Reader to download it.)

Here's a quick tutorial on how to put it together:
The template will print out onto one piece of letter sized paper. For this project I printed it directly onto the back of the patterned paper. You could also print it, cut it out, and use it as a template. Whatever works best for you. :)
Below I've got the envelope and alternate flap cut out and scored on the dashed lines.
Fold the sides in, and adhere.
Fold the bottom flap up and adhere that too.

Adhere the coordinating paper flap on top of the flap. Now we'll add the brad fasteners. Just make a pencil mark about 1/2" from either side of the bottom of the flap. (See mine below:)
Place the brads into the holes you marked. Then cut a piece of embroidery floss 10" long. Tie it around one of the brads and wrap around the brads.

This envelope will hold an index sized card note, or recipe card. It would also work great for a journaling holder on a scrapbook page! Enjoy!

I'd LOVE it if you let me know what you make with it!

Now, since this is also a tutorial there's a giveaway! Yippee! Just leave me a comment with a joke or short funny story. Let's get each other laughing! I'll pick a random comment on Thursday night, August 14th. The prize will be as follows:
One package of the brads used to make the envelope. Don't worry if you don't live close. If you win I'll send you the brads for free!

Can't wait to hear your jokes/funny stories!


  1. Love the tutorials and template. Your projects are so cute and after seeing the tutorials I know I can complete them, and also modify them to fit any project I might want to do! I'll be looking forward to Tuesdays!

  2. The church organist was in her eighties and had never been married.
    She was admired for her sweetness
    and kindness to all.
    One afternoon the pastor
    came to call on her and she showed him into her quaint sitting room.
    She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea.
    As he sat faci ng her old Hammond organ,
    the young minister
    noticed a
    CUT -glass bowl
    sitting on top of i t.
    The bowl was filled
    with water,
    and in the water
    floated, of all things, a condom!
    When she returned
    with tea and scones,
    they began to chat.
    The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity
    about the bowl of water and its strange floater, but soon it got the better of him and he could no longer resist.
    "Miss Beatrice", he said,
    "I wonder if you would tell me about this?"
    pointing to the bowl.
    "Oh, yes," she replied,
    "Isn't it wonderful?
    I was walking through
    the Park a few months ago
    and I found this little package
    on the ground.
    The directions said
    to place it on the organ,
    keep it wet and that it would prevent the spread of disease.
    Do you know
    I haven't had the flu
    all winter."

    I hope this joke is OK..lol Too funny.....I love papercrafting and have put your site on my desktop to check often....
    thank you for the pattern...

  3. Hi just found your blog.. Great things. Thanks for the pumpkin tut.plan to use soon. keep it up and Thanks again Jude on old gal

  4. The family rule for church is "Nobody leaves the service for any reason." All bathroom and water breaks are handled before or after the service! Having chili for Saturday night supper, his tummy began to rumble. He whispered to his wife "I gotta go!" She gave him that "you know the rules" look, but nonetheless, he couldn't wait. Upon finishing he re-entered the sanctuary, where the pastor was amidst his opening prayer. He bowed his head reverently and tried to slip in quietly. Head still bowed he placed his arm around that sweet woman, and tried to pull her in close to hopefully forego the after church lecture. As he scooted close he felt her elbow firmly in his ribs and knew he wouldn't get off the hook easily. He scooted cloer still and pulled her even closer, just about that time someone tapped him on the shoulder, he opened his eyes and quietly looked back....it was his wife!

    I love papercrafting and enjoy your blog! Thanks!
