Tips & Techniques Tuesday - November 19, 2013 - Boxes of all sizes with the Envelope Punch Board.

Good morning,

Do you have the Envelope Punch Board? Do you like making your own envelopes?  Do you think that is all the Envelope Punch Board Does?  Today I will be showing you how to make boxes for any of the 66 size envelopes. Yup 66 and more size boxes.

These are just a few of the boxes you can make. 

The Secret is really simple say you would like to make a box for 4x4 cards, and you would like it an inch deep. Look up the paper size for the envelope for a 4x4 card. which is 6 7/8 x 6 7/8 Score at 3 1/2. So to make a box to fit those cards and envelope and about 1" deep you will need to add an inch and score a second line at 4 1/2.  paper size 7 7/8 x 7 7/8 score at 3 1/2 x 4 1/2.

After trying to find box instructions for a few different sizes, it hit me.  Yes I know my daughter says I am not to bright (she is 17, so knows more than anyone else), but I was elated when it came to me.

It may be easier to understand on the video.  I do three different sizes on the video and try to explain it in more detail.

Here are the details on the envelope punch board.
