Can’t stop making these boxes

I am in love with the envelope punch board. Once you learn how to make these boxes, it easy to play around and make a variety of boxes on different sizes.  My original Christmas cracker box was made with a piece of card stock 6-1/2″ x 8″.  I then played around with a 6″ x 6″ piece of DSP and came up with Christmas cracker/bonbon that will fit a 2 Ferrero Rocher chocolates. What’s not to like about that.

To make this cracker/bonbon box from 6″x 6″ DSP you need to score at:

  • Score at 1-3/8″, 2-3/4″. 4-1/8″ and 5-1/2″
  • Line up on the Envelope Punch Board at 1-1/4″ mark

My friend Monique shows the process for making a cracker/bonbon on her blog.

Wouldn’t you like to get one of these for Christmas. The example in the photo was made using retired DSP, ribbon and brad. The colour scheme is in Real Red and Old Olive.  The current items I used were:

Paper: Real Red, Whisper White

Ink: Old Olive, Real Red

Stamps: Label Love, Petite Pairs

Accessories: Big Shot, Apothecary Label framelits, Artisan Label punch.

Happy stamping
