Petal Fold Envelope

I hope everyone had a great weekend, and for those of you in the States, I hope you had a nice long Labor day weekend.
Today I have a project and an scut file to share with you :)
This is a petal fold envelope that I decorated with some coffee filter flowers that I made using some Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist, my Tim Holtz Alterations Die (with my Cuttlebug) and a THIS tutorial I found on YouTube by Laurel. You can use whatever color Glimmer Mist you like to match your project, for mine I used : Dragonfly, Pomegranate, Rose Tea and Olive Vine.

Once folded, the envelope measures 5 7/8" square, perfect for a square card, a small mini album or a great way to present a gift card.

This is the other side of the envelope. See how each flap folds in like a petal and you don't even need any adhesive to hold it closed. The beautiful paper I used is the Prima Watercolor Rainbow double sided paper. So for all of you that don't like double sided paper because you feel like you are "wasting" one side, this project is perfect since both sides will be seen.

Here is the envelope opened. In this view you can see where you need to score the flaps to fold in. You can also see the other side of this beautiful paper.

Click HERE to download the SCAL2 scut file. Don't have SCAL2 yet? get it HERE. I'm also working on creating a file for DS and an SVG too. If you'd like me to let you know when they are available just leave me a comment on this post.
