Martha Stewart Score Board Tutorial

Martha Stewart's new Score Board The board holds a 12x12 piece of paper and you can score every 1/8 inch without moving your paper.
It comes with a Scoring tool and an envelope template that I dearly love. Below I am showing you the steps in making an envelope to match your cards. You can make several sizes and I chose to make the 6x6 using a 10x10 square piece of paper.
$19.99 plus shipping.
Please e-mail me if you would like to purchase one or more of Martha Stewarts new Scoring Boards.

The envelope template



A closer view of the envelope template showing
the different sizes you can make.


You place the template in the top corner edge
and then place your paper along the edge that contains
the measurements. Using the 10x10 paper,
my paper hangs over the template slightly. That
is okay.
I scored all 4 edges of the paper at 3 3/4 for the 6 inch

envelope.


After scoring, you clip the corners where the
two score lines meet which allows you to fold
the score lines smoothly.


A close up picture of where I clipped it where
two lines meet.



Fold on all 4 score lines using a bone folder (I
used the one that I scored with that comes with the board).
Then I ran a piece of tape on the 3 sidesthat are folded together.
Notice the inside of the envelope is printed which
is what you will get when you use double sided paper.
I can't wait to get in my new Graphic 45 paper, as
it will be so beautiful!!!



The envelope is completed and ready to insert
my card. It looks longer than it really is, as it
is a 6x6. It is just the way I had to photograph
the picture.



This shows a better view of the finished envelope.

This process didn't take 5 minutes and I so love the look.
How about you? Fun, fun and more fun. I can see the
beautiful envelopes now.

Joan,

I'm in love with this score board and your awesome customer service! I order the board and as soon as you had it available, you sent it to me and I received it the very next day!

I've been playing with it and I am thrilled with the way it scores and makes the envelopes!

Thank you so much!

Besides my Cricut this is my next favorite tool!

Very good instructions. I was able to complete your size envelope in just a few minutes. As I am lousy with measurements I am interested in making envelopes for 5 1/2" cards. What size paper would you suggest and the measurement for the score board. Thank you.

Can you make a real A2 envelope? I had the other british envelope maker and the A2 was not the same size as ours.

Thank you so much for this tutorial. I have been trying to figure out how to make a 6x6 card - when the paper wouldn't fit entirely on the board - now I know :-)

I know this is an old entry, but thank you, thank you for your excellent tutorial about the MS envelopes. I read and re-read the directions on the board, but seeing your pictures made it all make sense to me!
