Resizing the Envelope

It's always nice to make a coordinating envelope to go with those special handmade cards. However, sometimes the envelope needs to be resized to fit the card. 
 31/4 X 51/2 Tag Card made with cricut Art Philosophy cartridge page 60 in cricut booklet.
 Resized 5 3/4 X 3 1/2 coordinating envelope

Resizing Tutorial

 Cut the envelop on page 30 in the Art Philosophy Cricut booklet 1/4 inch larger than the length of the
 card. This envelope is cut at 5 3/4 inches.  Score at 3 1/2 inched down from the top fold.
Re cut the bottom flap to 2 1/4 inches. Reshape the side flaps.

Fold side flaps in and secure the bottom flap to the side flaps to make the envelope.
Cover the notch lines with 1/2 inch strip of coordinating paper.
