Today I have another treat holder and this one was created with the Envelope Punch Board. I would hate for someone to shy away from this product thinking that it’s just for envelopes! I make many more boxes with it than I do envelopes!
The candy I used for the inside is actually quite small but I was able to
cram fit six of them inside.
It is quite easy to make these and I have a picture tutorial as well as a few more samples at the end of the post!
You need to start with a 6″ x 6″ piece of paper and an Envelope Punch Board. If you haven’t used the Envelope Punch Board before, for this project you only need to look at the measurements at the top of the board and know where to punch and score. You’ll push down where it says to punch in the picture and score along the groove. Easy!
Line up one side of your paper at the 2-1/8″ mark. Punch and score!
Move your paper over to the 3-7/8″ mark. Punch and score.
This is what your paper should look like.
Repeat this step on the remaining three sides. It will look like this when you’re done.
You’ll cut on the score lines indicated in the picture below. These will be your flaps. Fold on all of the score lines.
This is how the box will be folded up but first, add adhesive.
I’ve used Tear and Tape on the four flaps. Bring the sides up and create your box!
The box won’t stay shut by itself so the vellum band keeps it closed. Cut a piece of vellum 7-1/2″ x 2″. Score at 1-1/4″, 2-1/2″, 5″ and 6-1/4″. Insert each end into the Scalloped Tag Topper punch. Wrap the vellum around the box and thread Baker’s Twine through the openings in the vellum. My sentiment was cut out with the Layering Ovals Framelits and slipped under the Baker’s Twine with a glue dot. I used the stamp set Birthday Blooms.
The Melon Mambo flower with a Brights Enamel Shape in the middle, was cut out using the Basket Builder Framelits Dies. It’s also attached with a glue dot.
I have to give credit to Jessica Walker, a fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator for being the inspiration for my project today.
If you make one of these easy boxes, I’d love to see your creation!!
