Envelope Punch Board – Box for deep card

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Box for yesterdays card

Well embellished cards are lovely but do leave us with the problem of the envelope not being big enough or even being protective.

This is where the Envelope Punch Board is ideal, not only does it make flat envelopes you can also make deeper envelopes. Although it was not made to do these deep envelopes, so does not have instructions for them, but its pretty easy to find these on pinterest.  I will give you the link to the one I use at the end so that you can make these for any size card you want to.

For mine I needed a 9″ Square of DSP, the following photos show my process.

For mine I needed to punch and score at 4 5/8″ and again at 5 5/8″I turned my paper anti-clockwise, lined up the score lines and punched and scored again, do this on all sides. Using the corner punch on the board round the 4 corners.

Fold and burnish all your scores and you will be left with the first picture above. With the paper lengthways in front of you, cut up the the scorelines either side but only as far as the first scoreline going the other way. Turn the paper and repeat the other end.

Fold the 2 short sides in, add adhesive to half way each side of one large side and fold in on top of the two short sides.  You then have your envelope box, add a panel on to the front to write on, I also added a flower for decoration. Put your card inside and fasten with a glue dot.

I don’t think my instructions are great, but you will find video tutorials on YouTube.

As for finding your paper size and score measurements, I have added a  link to what I use on pinterest here – Crafty Owl’s Box Buster.

Happy Crafting
