Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Envelope Punch Board : Presents & Pinecones Christmas Table Favours
Last week I made my Christmas crackers so this week I have added matching Christmas table favours, they are just so small and cute and will look fab on the Christmas dinner table, ooh Its making me feel all excited for Christmas now, yes I love it just as much as my not so young children 🙂
Hopefully next week envelope punch board Saturday will actually be on the right day, there are two more Saturdays this month so thats two more EPB projects for me to share with you.
Are these not just the cutest little things, they hold two of the chocolate hearts but I am going to put mint chocolates in them for Christmas day.
I still haven’t braved doing video’s, no surprise there though lol, but I will do them eventually but for now here is the photo tutorial for you.
When I made the crackers the left over DSP measured 12″ x 4″, these little boxes need just a 4″ x 4″ piece so you will get 3 of these just out of the off cut how great is that!
The finished box size for these is – 1 1/8″ square inside, but the outside height is 1 3/4″.
- Cut a piece of DSP to 4″ x 4″.
- using the Envelope Punch Board, punch and score at 1 1/4″ and 2 3/4″, repeat on all 4 edges.
- Round each of the corner tabs.
- Fold and burnish all score lines.
- With the outside pattern facing you cut as shown, cutting either side of two opposite corners up to the first score line.
- Add adhesive to each of the 4 tabs you’ve just cut.
- Fold these inside and press to adhere, repeat with all 4 to create your box.
- Add your chosen filling.
- Fold two tabs into the centre as shown.
- Punch a 1/8″ hole in the corner of the remaining two tabs.
- Thread your ribbon through as shown (I changed my mind about the ribbon after the photo was taken and used a thinner one).
- Tie in a bow.
- Stamp out your sentiment and punch out using the classic label punch, I punched out with the sentiment to one end then punched the end again to make it fit nicely
- Punch out two more pieces, I used Emerald Envy and Cherry Cobbler, cut away the middle section and then add the ends under the stamped piece to create a border on the ends.
- Add half a dimensional to the back, quick tip to save waste, snip either side of zig zag round the outside of the sheet, these are ideal for when smaller pieces are needed.
- I looped some Silver metallic thread round two fingers 8 times, then carefully removed from my fingers and added to my dimensional before sticking sentiment to front of the box.
- Finally I added a metallic enamel star on the top flap under the bow.
I just need some bands for my napkins and some printed candles to match now and my Christmas table will look great. These will be projects for another day though.
