Hi crafters, if you’re familiar with Stampin’ Up then I’m sure you have a passing acquaintance with our two punch boards. This week I’m going to showcase projects that were created using our Envelope Punch Board, our Gift Bag Punch Board or a combination of the two. There are many demonstrators that are experts at creating more than just envelopes or gift bags with these boards and one is my team mate Julie DiMatteo. The project I’m showcasing today, the Diamond Faceted Box, is one that I case’d of hers that I case’d using primarily the Gift Bag Punch Board. I use the Envelope Punch Board to create the bow on top of the box.
While Julie’s was made using card stock and dsp, I made mine using Foil Frenzy and the bow was made using Berry Burst card stock.
The box starts with a 8 1/2 x 3 1/4 piece of card stock. Using the Stampin’ Scoreboard place the card stock in portrait and score at 3/4. Then using the Gift Bag Punch Board, line the card stock up at the Start Line, Punch, score the gusset and put a small pencil mark at the side line. Line the pencil mark up with the Start Line, Punch, score the gusset and make a pencil mark at the side line. Repeat this process to the end of the card stock. At the end of the card stock will be a smallish tab, that you need to clip off.
Attach the sides together using Tombow liquid glue. Identify the front and back of your box. Close and secure the bottom tabs using liquid glue. To make the lid cut a piece of 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 card stock and score it at 3/4 on all sides. Create tabs by cutting along the score lines. Using liquid glue square up your lid by attaching tabs.
There will be two more Punch Board projects this week. Now on to business. There’s still time to take advantage of the Merry Patterns promotion. Just submit a qualifying order of $300.00, before tax and shipping costs, and earn the Merry Patterns stamp set.
Don’t forget that the October and November Paper Pumpkin kits are going to coordinate. While they work as stand alones why not double your fun by getting both.
See you Wednesday
