Yep, that's right!
We made a box with our Envelope Punch Board.
I found the instructions from Kim Wilson on Pinterest.
I've only tried a box to fit 3×3 cards–or similar sized items; I'll have to give some other sizes a shot…..
But maybe I should get my Christmas cards out first. 😉
So here's the finished box we made:
It ends up being 1" deep (thick? don't know how you'd describe that.)
So you know how on the Envelope Punch Board there are 3 columns of measurements: (finished) card size, paper size (start of the envelope) and score line.
Well, to make this box, we're using all that info as well:
- card size–this is the height & width of an item we'd like to fit in our box.
- paper size–we're adding 1" to each of those dimensions….The measurement needed for a 3×3 card is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4; our new need is 6 1/4 x 6 1/4.
- score line–we're using this line to punch and score (2 5/8) on each side/edge of the paper, and we're also ADDING 1" (3 5/8) and punching and scoring again.
Now you continue as you typically would a box:
- stamp/design the front as you'd like
- crease well on all the score lines
- CUT on score line for 4 small tabs (see picture)
To assemble, apply Sticky Strip to:
- the inside edges of your bottom flap–whichever is the bottom considering how your front is designed
- the outside of the 2 little tabs adjacent to the bottom flap
- the very corner of one of the side flaps (inside or outside doesn't matter; you just have to use that piece to adhere the 2 side flaps together)
- remove Sticky Strip backing and tuck the 2 little tabs in to start creating the sides.
- secure the 2 side flaps after removing the backing from the small piece of Sticky Strip.
- remove backing again and fold up the bottom flap.
- this leaves the top flap loose to tuck in withouth adhesive or keep closed with ribbon as shown.
