Apologies for those of you that have been desperate for a tutorial on this one… but I had to share my Envelope Punch Board projects first…. I hope that you will understand…..
I have been completely WOWED by the comments, emails and blog hits on this little card… within days it has actually shot up into my Top 20 Blog Posts ever!! Thank You. Thank You. Thank You…. it has made my week very special!!!
Thought I would first share a photo of the back of the Box Card too…..
So definitely time for a share of how to make one for yourself… though people local in the York / Harrogate / Boroughbridge / Wetherby / Thirsk / Easingwold area of North Yorkshire could come along and make it here instead…. I would love to hear from you…. this will be one of the projects that you can make during March using Amanda’s favourite new product ….. the Scalloped Tag Topper Punch…..
First up – the Metric /European A4 card size version (which is what I used as I find that the very marginally less wide 5cm sections fit better into the Scalloped Tag Topper punch than a 2” section! Even though I am usually an inches gal!!)
1. Start with a piece of card A4 wide (aka 21cm ) x 11.4cm (aka 4 1/2” ) long
2. Score LANDSCAPE* at 5, 10, 15 & 20cm
3. Score PORTRAIT* at 5cm (with the narrow section at the top)
And the Imperial/US Letter size version…
1. Start with a piece of cardstock 8 1/2” wide x 4 1/2” long
2. Score LANDSCAPE* at 2”, 4”, 6” and 8”
3. Score PORTRAIT* at 2” (with the narrow section at the top)
PS… *for those of you that aren’t used to the terminology…. as I do love to used one word instead of a long sentence…. where I can….
LANDSCAPE means put the wider section along the top “stop bar/ruler” of your score board or trimmer - and score down across the narrower section
PORTRAIT means the narrower section along the top - and score down across the wider section!!
And then for both….
4. Bone Fold all your score-lines
5. Cut off the smaller narrow section
6. Cut up the 3 shorter score lines to form the 4 tabs
7. Pop each section/flap into the Tag Topper Punch & Punch ( x4)
8. Adhere together to form the box using the narrow section
9. Score two small 1.5cm x 7 cm card pieces at 1 cm from each end to form the slats to go across the centre of the box (or score two 1/2” x 3” pieces at 1/2” from each end )
10. Decorate as desired…. come back tomorrow for tips on paper sizes and how to best punch the paper pieces for decoration... I have to admit that my little box sat for a fortnight undecorated… as punching small pieces of paper wasn’t too successful initially!!!!
