Autumn Envelope Punch Box


I think this is the last of my Autumn projects! I'm trying to get them all in before Thanksgiving, even though my craft room is covered in Christmas projects. 

The Envelope Punch Board--mmmm, mmmm, mmmm. You need it. Really, really need it. The best thing since cupcakes! This box is made with the Envelope Punch Board--super easy to do! The box holds at least 6 A2 cards and envelopes. You can make boxes to fit any card sets--great gifts for birthdays or . . . Christmas! :-) Or a hostess gift at Thanksgiving. 

This one is stamped with Woodgrain in Early Espresso, then decorated with Birch Paper (get it before it's all gone! in the Thankful Tablescape Kit) and leaf die cuts (also from the Tablescape kit). I had to throw a little Gorgeous Grunge stamping at the maple leaf. Can any project really be complete without a little spattering????

To make a box to fit A2 (5 1/2 x 4 1/4) cards: 
Cut your paper 9x9. Using EPB, punch and score at 3 1/2, then again at 4 1/2. Turn paper 180 degrees and repeat. 
On the two opposing sides, line up the pointer with the score lines and punch and score (twice on each side). Trim your bottom flap off about 3/4 of an inch. Cut off all 4 tiny flaps. Adhere sides and bottom. Make a belly band to hold the box shut.
