Envelope Punch Board Box

Happy Friday!

Back on schedule finally and here is the box I was going to showcase last week.

As the title suggest this box was made using the envelope punch board and here is how to make it.

To start pick a cardstock colour you like and trim it down to 8″ x 8″ then line the card up to 2 1/4 and make the first punch then score. The next is a little tricky as the measurement is longer than the punch board provides so I suggest using a ruler to help. Slide the card along till it is at 5 3/4 (that’s the bit you need the ruler for) punch then score and then repeat on each side. Use the opposite side of the punch board to round the corners.Then burnish each score line choose which sides you want for the tabs ( it doesn’t really matter which just as long as you do the opposite side in the same fashion) cut them then stick them to the inside of the other parts of the box.

Next cut some dsp 4 pieces of dsp to the size of the box faces and stick them on. On top of the box punch a hole on each flap roughly in the same place and then thread through some ribbon or twine and tie it off. You could just leave it there but I decided to add a little extra in the for or a tag that’s not a tag. You can use any shape or stamp for this part but I used the “For you” sentiment from the Hello There hostess stamp set and mounted it on a scallop circle and threaded this through one of the ends of my ribbon.

Thanks for stopping by, come back again.
