Small Thank You Card With A Custom Envelope

I made this little Thank You card so it could be tucked into a bouquet or gift.  And since the card is so thick, I had to make my own 3D envelope.  Those of you who know me, know I hate making envelopes.  But this one wasn’t that hard!

The card opens up to a fan shape.  It has lots of drawings of flowers on it which makes it look classy.  I really like the improvements Cricut has made to the drawing feature!  This project is the August Patreon only file.  The tutorial is free but the to get the download you must be a Patreon supporter of The Crazy Cricut Lady.

 

You will need:
        • Heavy 2 sided cardstock for the base
        • Various Cardstock scraps
        • Pen
        • Glue
        • Download File
Paper Selection

I did this card in green, but you can choose any color you want.  The base card needs to be two sided because you do see a little of both sides, but not much.  Patterns would work well with any part of this card as long as the pen showed up.  

Cutting the Thank You card

Cut the thank you card and the Cricut will do the writing.  I used a black gel pen.  Did you know that you can use any pen in your Cricut?  You can see the trick here.  I used a font called Avarta Cadavra and you can get it free at DaFont.

Assembling the Tiny Thank You Card

First re-crease all the folds.  Then you need to fold the medium green pieces like the first picture below.  The tab glues to the back of the piece like in the second picture below (click the picture to see the tab batter).  Then fold up the diagonal pieces and fold the card flat.  Glue the big sides of the pieces together with all the diagonals facing the same way (picture 3 and 4).  The four pieces make a stack which unfolds to the fan shown above.  Finally, attach the triangles to the folded sections with liquid glue.  Then attach all the squares to the remaining panels.

 

The envelope is assembled by first folding up the edges around the center square.  Then fold on the outer fold lines.  The thin rectangle shape between the fold lines form the box.  Fold over the bottom of the envelope leaving the “box” side straight up and the other rectangle perpendicular.  Fold the sides up the same way and glue them down where they overlap the bottom piece.  Try to be as neat as possible with the glue and don’t get any glue on the rest of the envelope.  Next insert the card folded flat.  Close the top flap but don’t glue it.  You can tuck it inside the envelope, if you want.

 

And your Tiny Thank You Card and Envelope are done.
