ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD------Bags, Bows and Cards Oh My!

Hi everyone! As promised I wanted to share the beautiful fun projects created on my Facebook LIVE with the Envelope Punch Board last week. If you missed this don't worry, all the instructions will be listed right here so you know how to make the cute projects. 

The Envelope Punch Board tool is so great for all your envelope needs, but it can really come in handy for creating some fun bags, boxes, and even adorable bows.  I hope you enjoy these fun projects and come back next week for another fun project tutorial.

Bow Instructions:
1) You will need a 1" x 12" and 1/4" x 12" piece of designer series paper(DSP) or cardstock of your choice. For these projects, I choose the Animal Expedition DSP and FREE Sale-a-Bration Botanical Butterfly DSP. (You may grab this DSP with a $50 purchase as your FREE item).
2) Take your 1"x12" piece of DSP and cut it down to a 1x7" and 1x4" piece. This will leave a very tiny square you may use on another project or discard if you do not keep leftovers. 
3) Next take the 1/4x12" piece of DSP and trim this down to 2x1/4"
4) Next you will need your Envelope Punch Board. Take your 1x7" piece and punch all four corners by lining up the end of your piece of DSP right down the middle of the punch. Then center this piece so you may punch both sides right in the middle at 3 1/2". This will give you a flat looking long bow.
5) Next take your 1x4" piece and take the short side and line it up in between the 4 and 5" measurement on your envelope punch board and make a mark in the center as a guide. Do this on both ends.
6) Next center the 1x4" piece of DSP and punch in the center on both sides again in the middle at 1 1/2"
7) Lastly, punch the tails out by lining up the 1" side with the guide line you made in the center of the punch to create the tail by punching here.
8) You will now grab your scoring tool from your envelope punch board and curl the loops of the bow. 
9) Now take your glue dots and create the bow loops on the long piece by bringing the loops in towards the center of the bow.  Adhere down and now add this piece to the tail piece with another glue dot.
10) For the final piece, take your 1/4x2" piece and loop this over the center adhering to the back of the bow with a glue dot in the center of the back of the bow. Tear off the excess. Congratulations, your bow is done.

Bag Instructions:
1) Start with a 12 x 12" piece of DSP of your choice. 
2) Take your envelope punch board and punch and score at 1 1/2" only down the end of the board. Do not let the score fall off the board or you could tear the paper.
3) Next turn the paper to your left and punch and score at the 3" mark.
4) Continue again with the paper turning the your left and score and punch at the 1 1/2" and then again turn the paper and do the 3" score and punch. 
5) Now flip over the paper and do the other side the exact same way. This will allow you to connect your score lines. 
6) Next you want to take your corner notch pieces at the 1 1/2" and 3" notches and score the flaps at all four corners so the notches connect and a flap forms.
7) Now you will fold on all the score lines.
8) Next you will take and cut right on the long score lines of the 3" flap side to the first center score line. 
9) Now flip the paper to the 1 1/2" flap side. You want to make sure you do not cut right up against the score line on this side but about a 1/2" away from the score line which is about the distance to the notch.
10) Next take some adhesive of your choice, Tear and Tape is recommended but you may also use snail adhesive, and add it on the side flaps you just cut.
11) Next begin to assemble your bag by bringing the flap side to the non-flap sides and adhere them down.
12) fold the two side flaps down inside the box and take the front flap of the box and glue dot it down.
13) Add your gift or treats and take the back flap and adhere that to the front allowing a hint of color from the front flap to line the top flap.
14) Add your bow with glue dots and you are all ready to give your gift.

1) Start with a 3x6" piece of whisper white cardstock and fold it in half.
2) take a piece of scrap whisper white cardstock and layer snail in a square shape on the cardstock.
3) Take the leftover piece of 1/4x12" piece of DSP and begin to line it longwise across the adhesive creating a mat on top of the adhesive. Use part of the wing cuts extras to fill the square.
4) Next use your butterfly punch to punch out a couple butterflies.
5) Take a sentiment from the Butterfly Gala stamp set and stamp this in what coordinating ink you would like.
6) Crease your butterflies down the middle and adhere them with a mini glue dot.
7) You may use either the antennas from the stamp set or use a writing marker to add them as seen in the picture.

As always if you have any question please do not hesitate to ask. Happy creating!!
