I think that my most neglected piece of kit is my Stampin’ Up! Envelope Punch Board, which is such a shame because it is useful for more than just envelopes.
I thought that it needed an airing so I pulled it out, dusted it off, and put it to use making this little gift box.
If you want to watch the video, you can do so here. I should warn you there were a couple of senior moments though, and the camera did its autofocus thing again.
The finished dimensions are 3″ x 3″ x 2″ and is pretty simple to make. It fastens using a belly band that slides on and off, and has been decorated with a layered flower.
For the box, you need a piece of card 8″ x 8″ which you score at 2 1/2″ and 5 3/8″. Because the punch board does not extend to 5 3/8″, the easiest thing to do is use either the Stampin’ Up! Trimmer or Simply Scored.
The belly band is a piece of card 1 1/4″wide, 11 3/4″ long (or the full length of an A4 sheet) and scored at 3″, 5£, 8″, 10.” Then it is simply wrapped around the box and the decoration is then added to the top.
The stamp set used is “Bloom for You” and I have used the following punches:
2 3/8″ Scallop Circle punch
1 1/4″ Scallop Circle punch
1 ” Circle punch
If you have any question, or would like to get your hands on any of the goodies I have used to make these pretty boxes, please feel free to contact me.
