Vendor Spotlight: Crafter’s Companion The Enveloper

Reported by Kelleigh Ratzlaff

How many times have you created THE most adorable card, only to discover that you don’t have any envelopes that will accommodate the beautiful, bulky bits that make it so fabulous?

Unfortunately, that happens to me all the time. In the past, I would just hand deliver the card or tuck it in the gift bag sans envelope. All the while, I was wishing that I had the time and patience to create the perfect 3-dimensional envelope to encase my card and lend it that additional touch of elegance.

Let me introduce you to my new friend, The Enveloper by Crafter’s Companion.


According to the manufacturer:

“The Enveloper Pro has the capability to make nine different shape and size envelopes and comes with its own double ended scoring and embossing tool and a full colour four page booklet detailing how to make the various size envelopes and tricks of the trade such as achieving a professional finish by lining the envelopes.”

This unassuming piece of plastic was SO much fun to play with, once I got the hang of it. It makes flat envelopes and dimensional envelopes to fit my bulky cards.


I’m embarrassed to say that it did take me a while to figure out the envelope sizing chart included in the pamphlet that arrived with my Enveloper. I had a 3″x5″ card, and I needed an envelope to match. However, (and, it does take guts to admit this, so be gentle in the comments) I could NOT for the life of me figure out which envelope size would work! I mean, what does “1/2 US Letter Paper” mean? Does that mean that my finished envelope will be 8.5″x5.5″, or will it mean it will be 11″x4.25″?? And, what in the world is a “1/2 depth tri-fold”? I promise I am not a math dummy, but I simply couldn’t wrap my brain around those measurements without having to take out a sheet of 8.5″x11″ paper, folding it in half and then tri-folding it. Huh?


So, I decided to just make a “short slimline (5 1/2″ x 3″)” envelope, even though I didn’t know for sure that my card would fit inside.

I cut my cardstock to the size indicated on the chart (7″ square), then followed the directions to create an “envelo-box.”

First, I scored the lines:


Then I clipped the corners:

And adhered the edges of the envelope:

I folded the additional paper to the inside of the envelo-box and tucked my card inside. My card FIT!! Wahooo!


The finished envelo-box measurements were 5.75″x3.25″, even though the chart said “short slimline (5 1/2″ x 3″)”. This, of course, leads me to believe that the size indicated on the chart is the size of the CARD, rather than the envelope. Hmm. Good to know.

Check out the profile of the envelo-box:


Too cute!!

Okay, you know what gets me? Crafter’s Companion has a chart on their website that includes over 100 custom envelope sizes. I didn’t find this out until AFTER I made this little beauty. I could have avoided all of the frustration if I had known to look on the website. D’oh!

There is even an awesome video to show you how to use The Enveloper!!

A few days after I made my first little envelo-box, my son was wrapping a present for a friend and couldn’t fit the packs of gum inside his envelope. Taa-daa! I became the hero, because I had The Enveloper!! I quickly (super quickly!!) whipped up a 6″x6″ envelo-box, which held the gum perfectly!

I’m so excited about the possibilities of The Enveloper. I have a feeling that it is going to have a prime location on my craft table.

Pros:

  • The pictorial instructions are very easy to understand (once you can figure out which size you need! LOL!).
  • ENDLESS possibilities. I am super excited about the chart that I downloaded from the website. I think I will have to laminate it! I have no doubt that I will find an envelope size to match any card size I can make.
  • The Enveloper is made of sturdy plastic and includes some fun shapes that can be embossed on the flap of the envelope to further customize it.
  • The website includes a handy video to explain how to use The Enveloper!

Cons:

  • I think the pamphlet that came with The Enveloper is confusing and outdated. According to the very useful chart on the website, The Enveloper can create over 100 custom sizes, although the wording on the website and the chart both indicate that it can only create 9 sizes. This may be something they are planning to remedy in the future (hopefully!).
  • I would have liked to see a place to securely attach the scoring tool to the bottom of The Enveloper. As it is, the scoring tool is in danger of getting lost on my desktop.

    I have one of these, and I love it. I had sent an email to the company suggesting two of the additions I made. One, I attached a vertical magnet to the back groove, and then attached a vertical magnet to the scoring tool..no lost tool.

    Next, I typed up a chart with the most common envy sizes, paper size, and the scoring grooves in a table. Printed, laminated, and taped that to the back of the Companion. All together and ready to go.

    I’ve been considering my enveloping options for the last couple of weeks and leaning towards this tool. I have a cricut and have looked at SVG files for envelopes but I just think this will be more user-friendly and right at my fingertips when I need one. I’m working on Birthday, Thank-You and Christmas cards while school is out and would really like to make coordinating envelopes to match. Thanks for the post – I’m more inclined to purchase one now (if I’m not your lucky winner).

    I am so glad that you reviewed this product. I never quite understood why I need this. I have made some “boxes” similar to this without a tool and it does take some time to put one together. This looks to be able to put a dimensional envie together quick and easily. Thanks for the opportunity to win one of these since I now would really love to have one.

    I have the Crafter’s Companion, which basically has the enveloper built into it. I love it, but I will admit that it sat in my craft room for about a year before I actually watched the dvd and started using it. I learned a tip for storing the scoring tool at a craft show… attach self-stick velcro to the handle, with the other side of the velcro on the base, then just stick your tool onto it.

Over the course of a 6 month time period and sending several emails through their own website. I NEVER received one solitary response. I know it looks like a wonderful product, but this situation left me feeling a little cold. I wonder about their customer service. I would love one of these and would have gladly bought one, back when they first came out, if I know I could have. Are they not the company that also makes one of the scoring tools?

    I am new to card making and scrapbooking but I have yet had a card turn out that would fit an envelope I have. I thought it was just me and my lack of knowledge. I need this tool and much more help!

    I’d love to use this for my Christmas card envelopes. I just purchased some templates, and I’m not in love with them. This sounds much better!

    I am so tired of trying to match my cards with my envelops. I hate cutting down the card if I don’t have an envelop that fits. I would love to have this. ambrerose(!AT)aol.com

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU soooo much for this review!! I’ve had my enveloper for over half a year now and never used it for I couldn’t figure it out so I kept making the A2 card sizes and not too much embellishment. You have opened pandora’s box lol. This is the best blog I’ve ever found and am I ever glad I did.

    Thank you once again πŸ™‚

    This is way too cool! I make a lot of cards and most of them are the traditional size because it’s hard to find envelopes to fit different sizes. Thanks for the chance to win one…my fingers are crossed!

    Your review sounds more positive than Beth’s so maybe I would give this a try. Envelopes that match cards look so much better than plain jane ones.

    Sounds like a great tool that I NEED! But don’t be so quick to accept any blame for not understanding the instructions. You are probably above average when it comes to figuring out new tools, so the average user will probably have a lot more trouble figuring out how to use the Enveloper. My guess is that the instructions could have been written better and were never tested on real crafters.

    This seems like a cool and useful tool for quick envelopes that have room for ‘bulky embellishments’ on cards. I love the concept and will be helpful sending out cards of any size.

    I already own the enveloper, so don’t need to win it, but I want to say thank you for that link to the sizes. I have barely used mine because I can’t figure out how to make envies for odd sized cards, which is why I wanted it in the first place. The instructions weren’t so hot, but the link helps a lot!

    WOW. This is something I have been looking for right from the start of my Cardmaking. I have always struggled with Envelopes and for this reason have always stuck to the plain old standard size. This would change my whole Cardmaking choices. If I’m not lucky enough to win one I will most certainly buy one anyway. In fact after looking at the Website I think I want everything they sell LOL.
