Great product. I'd suggest starting the crease from the edge of the board and push inwards.

This board is ideal in every way for making envelopes. The envelopes are precise and professional looking and take very little time. They also have the peaked flap at the back, even for rectangular cards, which I like. I've always made envelopes to match cards and not the other way around so this tool is ideal for me and I really wish that I had invented it! It is so much easier than using an ordinary score board. The punch on this board makes the gaps between the sides look so professional and does away with the need for a crafting knife and I appreciate the corner rounder on the other side of the punch which makes the envelope flaps look so much more professional and thus the overall envelope is very aesthetic indeed. And they all come out square! No more squinty envelopes.

As has already been pointed out, there are tutorials on YouTube for this board and the myriad of other things that it can make too so not just a one trick pony, which is also useful for crafters.

A word of warning though. This board has been created for the American market and all measurements, including the enclosed centimetre equivalent, are for American sizes of paper/card, which are different to British sizes of paper/card. And I don't mean just because America uses imperial measurements, they don't know what A4 is, for example. It doesn't seem to be holding back other reviewers but I thought I'd mention it, especially since a lot of thought has clearly been put into all other aspects of this board.

All in all, buy it, you won't regret it. Highly recommended

This does exactly as you'd expect - it makes making envelopes nice and simple. A great addition to any crafters collection.

The envelope punch board has been on my wish list for ages and I finally succumbed. It's a great compact tool with integrated cut outs and corner rounder and storage space for the bone folder. I'm looking forward to making the envelope sizes printed on the board as well as following some of the youtube projects to make boxes.

I really LOVE this envelope board. It makes wonderful envelopes... search YouTube and you will find tons of other things that can be made with this basic board. People are brilliant!
If I could change just one thing it would be to have a bigger base for larger envelopes as the score line can be tricky for larger projects.

Awesome so much easier now to make some jazzy envelopes in practically size I want! Better than the crafter's companion one. I am a very happy little bunny right now.

TOP 500 REVIEWERon 26 July 2014
I bought this item for my wife, who as a crafter, said it was a ‘must have’ after she had used a friend’s. It makes great envelopes and is so easy to use. She does give a word of warning though - always start with the right size paper and no matter what size the finished envelope, your paper is always square to start with. The board has instructions printed on it, and imperial measurements (inches) for the card size and the paper size to use for the envelope. These instructions were followed and in no time at all made some envelopes for the first time ever! There is also a glossy instruction leaflet giving slightly clearer instructions with pictures. On the leaflet, the measurements are all in metric (cm) and there is a printing error – the last card size is shown as 12.2 x 21.6, this should read 15.2 x 21.6. The board itself is small at only 10.5” x 7.5” (27cm x 19cm) and lightweight with the creasing tool stored in groove underneath when not in use. It has two built in punches, to take out notches where the folds come together and another to round of the corner of the envelope flap. It must be said that it is a very neat unit. This gadget will make 66 sizes of envelope, to fit a card size of 5.1cm x 9cm (2” x 3.5”) up to a maximum card size of 15.2cm x 21.6cm (6” x 8.5”).

• Fabulous results were achieved when lining the flap with a matching paper to the background of the card to fit the envelope and when using scrap booking papers, with the pattern as a lining and the plain side outside.
• Crafters narrow double sided tape on a wheel was used to seal the sides and base and worked a treat
• Envelope gum can be bought if you want to add this option for sealing or use a narrow double sided (peel off backing) tape.

There are quite a few hints and tips in the other reviews for this product, so it is well worthwhile reading them to help get the best out of this piece of kit.
