Envelope Punch Board

                                     Envelope Punch Board favor boxes

In my last post I featured our "big winner" box with bow prizes for the Bunco Babes and today I'll show you how to make these cute little mini boxes using the Envelope Punch Board and some decorations of your choice.  Here's the finished product... 

I used a small piece of florists cello and tucked two chocolate hearts in each one - yum,

Here's how to make the little box....

Start with a piece of double sided designer series paper cut at 6" x 6".  Using your Envelope Punch Board, punch and score at 1 3/4,  3 1/8,  and 4 1/2.
Do this on all four sides.  Here's what it should look like.

You'll notice one "pointy end" is larger than the one next to it.  Next you're going to cut off the 2 smaller "pointy ends"... like this

Now orient the paper the way my scissors are pointing and cut along the score lines as shown below.  At this point you should also be pre-folding your score lines

You're going to cut off the "curvy" pieces to get the following shape...

Are you starting to see the little container taking shape?  No?  Well, hang in there, it will become pretty obvious very soon.  Note*** while you weren't looking (*wink*) I rounded the "pointy ends" with the corner rounder which is part of the Envelope Punch Board.  Handy little tool.  Ok, now flip your paper over and put adhesive on those little flaps and turn in and adhere... like this.

NOW you can see it, right?  

There you go.  It's easy and fun and I think it makes a really cute little container for (whatever).
I used the 1/2" round punch, heart punch, word window punch, teeny tiny wishes and the little heart is from the Owl Builder punch.  Using your cropodile (or 1/4" punch) to punch through both layers on both sides and draw your ribbon through and tie in a bow - this closes the box.  

Have fun making these - bet they'd be cute holding a Cadbury Easter egg too - but I'm getting ahead of myself. 

Hope you've enjoyed this little tutorial - I love reading your comments (if you'd like to leave one - hint hint).

Enjoy your stamping - back soon.

Hugs,  Pat
