During February – my classes have focused on the Envelope Punch Board tool. Not only is it useful for making envelopes - and box envelopes - as you would expect… but it is incredibly versatile and can also be used for cards, boxes, bows, crackers, bags , mini albums, file folders etc etc etc.
Visit my Pinterest Envelope Punch Board board here to see many ideas and tutorials using this fabulous tool….
It really is an awesome bit of kit for just £17.95…
So my posts for the next few days will feature projects we made to demonstrate the versatility of the tool – whilst ensuring that everyone went home with their Envelope Punch Board and the knowledge on how to use it!
The first project is a simple box envelope for sending a card with dimension… well until I decided to add a bow made using the Envelope Punch Board too!!! So this one will have to be hand delivered after all…
I used this tutorial by Chris Slogar for the box envelope tutorial. Thank you Chris! Now as I know I have a few readers that will find the measurements useful for this particular card…. the dimensions of this card are 3” x 4” x 3/4” deep – so my paper size is 7” Square. The first score is at 2 5/8” and the second is at 3 5/8”.
I used this tutorial by Nadine Hoessrich for the bow. I did add a few shortcuts by leaving the paper pieces folded in half… which just meant that I cut through 2 ends etc at a time….
And the card itself….. this one is thanks to my uber-talented SU! mummy Julie Kettlewell. Think it is one of my favourite team training projects ever Julie!! So - here are more details of the original from Julie - I just added an extra greeting and a few flowers so here are a few more photos of mine….. a truly stunning concertina card using the absolutely wonderful Scallop Tag Topper Punch…. ( my favourite product!!!) and the Banner Punch which is my favourite SAB freebie item….. I have already made a few more of these concertina cards but those will be for another day…..
And here are more details on the Envelope Punch Board from the Stampin’ Up! web site.
