Mini Box made with Envelope Punch Board Tutorial

Hello Papercrafters,

I'm so sorry for the delay in posting this, with the holidays and being sick I'm finally getting around to it, I created a photo tutorial, it was just faster and easier with all the activity going on around me. 

This box is really easy to create and works great for treats, jewelry or other small little trinkets for gifting.  You will start with a piece of dsp cut at 6" x 6"

You will then line up the 1 3/4 " line, punch and score, then you just slide your dsp over to the  3 1/8" punch and score....keep sliding to the 4 1/2 " punch and score.....


 Now you will turn, line up to the score lines you made, then punch and score, make sure you do this on each score line you made, this step will be completed on each remaining side. 

You will end up with this shape,  I am using a piece of white paper above to show you where you do your trimming.  As you can see you will end up with 2 tabs more narrow than the other 2, you will remove the 2 smaller tabs, just continue to remove the pieces that I have illustrated above......
Here you can easily see what you will need to remove, then just fold all score lines, the 2 large tabs will be the top......
As you can see from this photo I used the mini scallop punch to create a handle in the tabs, I also used a hole punch to attach the ribbon so it can be tied closed. Then just decorate and embellish as you like, of course with a swap out of dsp this can be made for any occasion.  Enjoy!


Thanks for stopping by I hope you all have a wonderful Merry Christmas full of much love, laughter, and merriment!  
Have a wonderful day!
Tamara
