Two Tips that work well together

Card Size & Envelope to Try
I found two tips that work great together.

From Nichole Heady:
My new favorite card size is 3 1/2" x 4 1/4". They are so cute AND cost efficient. From an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper I can make three cards.

Note from Sue: Cut your 8 1/2" x 11" cardstock every 3 1/2" down the page and when each piece is folded it will be 3 1/2" x 4 1/4". You will have a 1/2" strip left over.

For an Envelope to fit these small cards see Julie Ebersole's BLOG:
'A-2 Envy for a square card'.

Note from Sue: You will have to adjust the size of the paper inserted into the envelope to 2" wide X 4 1/8" long to properly fit with the 3 1/2" x 4 1/4" card.
