4 Inch Square Cards with Envelopes

You can make a card set quickly with this size – the paper-piercing part is also breeze to do (it will probably take 5 minutes, 10 minutes if you’re very precise, LOL). What’s more, it is quite economical; you can make four cards out of a 12” x 12” piece of cardstock. And if what’s stopping you from making these cards is, you have no envelope to fit them, then just check out the template at the end of the instructions – now you don’t have an excuse!

Picture - 4-Inch Square Card


  • white cardstock
  • colored cardstock of your choice (I used 12” x 12” pearlescent card stock)
  • your choice of paper for envelopes
  • your choice of adhesive
  • images and square paper-piercing patterns from Paper Piercing Floral Set
  • tools: paper-piercing tool (I used a push pin!); pricking mat (an old mousepad)


  1. Print the flower images and the square paper-piercing patterns on white cardstock. Cut out the floral graphics with a 2” circle punch or your preferred cutting tool. Set aside.
  2. Using the paper-piercing tool, punch holes where there are black dots on the patterns. Trim the piece so that it measures 3” x 3”. Adhere the floral image to the center of the paper-piercing.
  3. Cut the colored cardstock into 4” x 8” pieces. Make into a card that measures 4” x 4”. Adhere the framed floral image to the center of the card.
  4. Optional: Cut a piece of 4” x 8” paper for a card insert. Adhere to the inside of the card.
  5. For the envelope, print the envelope template below. Cut along solid lines, fold along the dotted lines. Glue where bottom flap meets the side flaps.
