mini gift box made with the envelope punch board

This itty, bitty gift box was made using the Envelope Punch Board!  I never would have thought to use that board to make a BOX, but it was super easy, and you can adjust the size of the paper and score lines to make all different sizes!  This one is 2-3/8 x 2-3/8 x 1-3/8 inches in size, and is the absolute perfect size for party favors.  While I am not set up to do videos of my own just yet, there are many, many videos already out there that you can watch to learn how to do this if you’d like to make your own. Simply Google “Gift Box with Envelope Punch Board” and a bunch of different videos will pop up. You can easily make these for any occasion, simply by changing the paper!

To make this particular box, I started with a 6 x 6 inch square of Delightful Daisy Designer Series Paper. I used the Envelope Punch Board to punch and score at both 2 and 4 inches all the way around the square.  Once that was done, I rounded all the corners using the reverse punch, which can be found right at the top of the board.  I then folded the paper on all of the score lines. There are a couple of places that you need to cut with scissors in order to fold the box correctly (this is where a video definitely helps!) Once the score lines were folded, I applied some Fast Fuse adhesive to keep the box together. Before closing it up, I put in a few Hershey Kisses, and then just folded the top flaps down and added a bit of adhesive to keep it closed. I wanted to keep the top of this box flat in order to wrap the ribbon around and use the mini bow on top, but there are many other ways to finish them instead. For instance, in the video I watched, small holes were punched in each flap that had ribbon threaded through. The ribbon was then tied a bow. Definitely check out Pinterest and/or Google for lots of examples of how these little boxes can be finished, and what they can be used for!

Other items used to finish this box include the Leaf Punch, Wood Words Bundle (for the sentiment and tag), and Silver Mini Sequin Trim.
