Hi everyone i am trying to make a A5 size envelope-box i have a crafters companion board which tells you to score on certain lines but when i try it comes out small like a A6 size i just can not get my head around it.
Does anyone know how i can do it.
Any help or advice would be most appreciated.
best wishes and kind regards kim xx:confused:

Sorry i can't help, tbh I'm not sure what an envelope-box is :confused: I can't remember where my booklet is so I make a simple box by deciding how deep I want it and then use the 'lid' and 'base' lines as the depth/sides of the box. I cut 2 pieces of card the same size (laying the card I've made in the middle of them first) and emboss a faint line around it and then make it final when i use the grooves on the board. This way you can make a box for pretty much any size card you want. (I really must try and find the booklet!) :)

I've got the crafters companion ultimate pro so will have a go on mine in a bit and let you know how I get on, and will let you know the alternative lines that I used if I need to
