The new camera added to my great enjoyment of Lindsay Weirich’s The Frugal Crafter blog and YouTube channel made me think of trying to create a video. So, I tried it…When I was in town yesterday I forgot to get the envelopes in which to send our Christmas picture and letter. Since I had purchased an envelope maker from Oriental Trading Post some months ago and only used it a few times, I thought I would get into it…mainly to recoup from my failure yesterday, since it is snowing and sleeting and freezing raining outside making it no day for an old lady to hit the road.
This is called an Envelope Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers. The punch, the scoring channel, and the blue scoring tool make this a snap to use…especially if you read the directions that are on the board itself.
Three other things are necessary to make cool envelopes: Paper, a paper cutter, and glue.
With these tools I was able to quickly make 45 envelopes…Now I need the nice paper for the Christmas letter, which apparently we used up last Christmas! No driving today but perhaps tomorrow the roads will be clear…
Our first effort at a video with the new camera has been posted to YouTube. I hope you enjoy it. You can find it here.
