Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator stampwithpeg – Envelope Punch Board : Presents & Pinecones Gift Box with Instructions.
I bought this lovely candle holder a while ago, it has lots of little christmas trees on it and is a lovely colour. I needed to make a gift box for it so when I was deciding what to make for this weeks envelope punch board project it seemed to make sense to merge the two.
The holder goes really well with the green (Emerald Envy) in the Presents & Pinecones DSP, which is oh so cute, it has little gloves and candy canes on and lots more festive things. I used a stamp from the Jar of Cheer stamp set, I love this stamp I have used it for lots of gift tags it’s just perfect for that.
Here’s the instructions, I hope you try it for yourself it’s a nice size finished – 2 1/2″ across by 2 3/4″ high, full height with top part is 4 1/2″.
- Cut your piece of card to 7 1/2″ x 10 1/2″
- Score on long side at 2 1/2″, 5″, 7 1/2″ and 10″
- Score on the short side at 2 1/2″, 5 1/4″, 5 3/4″ and 6 1/4″
- Fold and burnish all score lines, the 5 3/4″ score line on the short side needs folding the opposite way to create and inward fold.
- Using the Envelope punch board, punch on each fold placing the inward fold line in the centre of the punch area as shown above, repeat for each fold on the short side score lines.
- With the card positioned as shown above cut up each score line to the first fold, cut away the little piece on the left hand side.
- Cut 8 pieces of paper – 4 pieces of 2 3/8″ x 2 5/8″ and 4 pieces 1 1/8″ x 2 5/8″
- Adhere them as shown above
- Add glue to the small strip on the left
- With the back facing you fold the right side in and then fold the left side over it on to the glued strip.
- Open the box up and place it upside down with the back facing you
- Fold the back flap in to the middle and add adhesive to the other three
- Fold the two sides in first then the front flap
- Turn the right way up and use your bone folder or ruler to press down inside the base to make sure its all stuck.
- The sentiment is stamped in the matching red (Cherry Cobbler) ink on to a 1 3/4″ punched out circle.
- I then used both the red and green matching twine, 2 lengths of each tied around and fastened in a bow, then the ends were trimmed.
- Finally I added some enamel shapes and some tissue in the top.
- Remember to insert your gift before tying your bow, or you will have to undo it again (like I had to) and not get the bow as good the second time 🙂
I like the effect the envelope punch board gives these boxes, its like one end of a cracker, perfect for christmas gifts. I have got 3 more of these lovely candle holder to give out as gifts so will be making more of these boxes.
