A Christmas tradition and my trusty Envelope Punch Board

Each year I give my friend a Christmas Ornament. I like to find something handmade as she is a quilter and loves anything handmade. This year I found a lovely glass Angel and I found it from a new shop opened at Wellington Point called Quirkylicious. The best thing about this is, that it is run by a Paper Angel (a Stampin' Up! colleague) So I am very excited that I have found a lovely gift for my friend and at the same time can promote a lovely shop.

Of course I am still addicted to the Envelope Punch Board, sooooo, I had to make a box to hold the Angel. She nestles quite nicely in this box. If you are wondering how I got the measurements for the box I will try and explain how you can make any size box using these rules.

(I am using inches as I find it easier for my brain)
If the card or in this case Angel measures 41/4" x  51/2" Find the closest card measurement on your Envelope Punch Board. I was lucky there was a card size for 41/4" x  51/2". Then check the paper size you need. In this case it said 8x8.

Now this is the rule - add 11/4" So you need to cut your Paper Size to 91/4" Now place it on the Score line that it says, for me that was 31/2", punch and score. Move the paper along one inch to 41/2 (I only wanted my box one inch deep), punch and score. Now turn the paper and just follow the score lines punching and scoring all the way. If this sounds a little confusing this is all that you need to know.
  • Add 11/4" to any paper size and then use the usual score measurements for that size . 
  • Slide along one inch for the depth of the box. I found one inch was a good depth. That's it. I hope you have fun making some boxes using these rules.
This is the box for my Angel
