I love my Envelope Punch Board from Stampin’ Up!  Not only can you make envelopes with it but look at this cute box that you can make!


Our double-sided Designer Series Paper is perfect for this project.  I used a 6″ x 6″ piece of paper so that means you can get 4 boxes from each sheet of Designer Series paper.  Here is how I made it –

  • Start with a 6″ x 6″ piece of Designer Series Paper.
  • Line it up at the 2″ mark on the Envelope Punch Board and punch and then score it.
  • Slide it over to the 4″ mark and punch and score again.
  • Turn the paper and repeat on the next side.  Do it again on the other two sides.  Now your paper has two diagonal scores lines on each side.
  • Now use the corner rounder and round all four corners.
  • It should look like this (I marked the score lines on this sample with a black sharpie so you could see them)envelope-box-1
  • Next you need to fold on all the score lines.
  • Now you are going to fold in the corners of the box by taking the rectangle sections and bringing them together so that it creates a fold in the little triangle between each pair of punches.  I added the sharpie here on this picture so you can see where those are.envelope-box-3envelope-box-2
  • Punch holes in each of the corners so that you can pull your ribbon through to tie the box shut.
  • On my example I used the Natural Ribbon to tie the box shut
  • Add a tag – this one is from the Perfectly You Hostess stamp set in the Holiday Catalog.


Fill the box with a little treat before you close it up.  Some candy canes or chocolates.

Well it may be late in the day but I got a second post done after my shopping today.  I am almost done with all the Christmas shopping.
