Winter Frost Card Box


You know I love the Envelope Punch Board, right??? Well, this is one reason why! It makes amazing boxes! There are tutorials all over youtube, so I'll just give brief written instructions at the end of this post.

This is the box to go with the Endless Wishes snowflake notecards. We put three in it, but I'm sure it would hold 5-6 cards. The bellyband is made of Coastal Cabana cardstock. Add Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon with a banner end cut. Punch  1 ¾” scallop circle from embossed silver paper, punch 7/8” circle from Bermuda Bay. Stamp image in Bermuda Bay and punch with 1 inch circle punch. Create medallion and adhere over ribbon.


To make a box to fit notecard sized (3 1/2 x 5) cards:
Cut your paper 8 1/4 x 8 1/4. Using EPB, punch and score at 3 1/8, then again at 4 1/8. 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.
