Punch Board Box

 

Yep, that's right!

 

We made a box with our Envelope Punch Board.

 

I found the instructions from Kim Wilson on Pinterest.

 

I've only tried a box to fit 3x3 cards--or similar sized items; I'll have to give some other sizes a shot.....

 

But maybe I should get my Christmas cards out first. ;)

 

So here's the finished box we made:

It ends up being 1" deep (thick? don't know how you'd describe that.)

 

So you know how on the Envelope Punch Board there are 3 columns of measurements: (finished) card size, paper size (start of the envelope) and score line.

 

Well, to make this box, we're using all that info as well:

  1. card size--this is the height & width of an item we'd like to fit in our box.
  2. paper size--we're adding 1" to each of those dimensions....The measurement needed for a 3x3 card is 5 1/4 x 5 1/4; our new need is 6 1/4 x 6 1/4.
  3. score line--we're using this line to punch and score (2 5/8) on each side/edge of the paper, and we're also ADDING 1" (3 5/8) and punching and scoring again.

 

The finished/punched-n-scored paper looks like this:

Now you continue as you typically would a box:

  • stamp/design the front as you'd like
  • crease well on all the score lines
  • CUT on score line for 4 small tabs (see picture)

To assemble, apply Sticky Strip to:

  • the inside edges of your bottom flap--whichever is the bottom considering how your front is designed
  • the outside of the 2 little tabs adjacent to the bottom flap
  • the very corner of one of the side flaps (inside or outside doesn't matter; you just have to use that piece to adhere the 2 side flaps together)

  • remove Sticky Strip backing and tuck the 2 little tabs in to start creating the sides.
  • secure the 2 side flaps after removing the backing from the small piece of Sticky Strip.
  • remove backing again and fold up the bottom flap.
  • this leaves the top flap loose to tuck in withouth adhesive or keep closed with ribbon as shown.
