Note Card Box – Envelope Punch Board to the rescue

As promised, I created a box for the lotus blossom cards from Wednesday’s post.  If you missed that post you can see it here.  The cards were such a pretty set they just screamed out for a pretty box to put them in.  I was also able to used some other new products from Stampin Up, specifically the Butterfly Basic thinlit die, part of a stamp and framelit bundle.  This is one of my favorite items from the spring catalog.  Best thing, the envelope punch board is on sale this week.  Order before Tuesday and save $5.

For the butterfly I used the thin-lit on whisper white card stock.  I then spritzed it with alcohol and about 5 drops of strawberry slush re-inker.  I didn’t want an over saturated look, just a light touch of color and the spritzer with alcohol is a really quick way to do this.  Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board Butterfly Basics

To make the box, I  started with a piece of 9×9  designer series paper. You can also easily use card stock or even kraft paper.

  • Using the Envelope Punch Board, punch and score along one edge at the 3-1/2″ and 4-1/2″ score lines.
  • Turn the card 180 degrees and followed the same procedure.
  • For the remaining sides, line up the scored lines with the score guide and scored accordingly.
  • Clip one of the small tabs
  • Adhere with sticky strip or fast fuse.
  • The Belly band was created with an 12″ x 1-3/4″ strip of colored card stock, layered with a 1″ x 12″ strip of from the DSP. adhered together and then scored at 2-3/4″, 3-5/8″, 8″, and 8-7/8″.
