Bow Making Using Envelope Punch Board

Good Morning Everyone,

Happy Wednesday or hump day as everyone says. Today I wanted to share with you a fun way to dress up a card, box or anything with a bow. In our annual catalog on page 207 there is a bow builder punch which I don’t have, so I had to make an alternative plan.

If this is your first time visiting my blog, hello and welcome. This is my first time taking part in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights Hop. For this month’s Kylie’s International Blog Highlights Hop the theme is “Teachers Gifts”

 

I decided to do a coffee mug and fill it with wrapped hershey’s nuggets and add a gift card to Starbucks!

Cutting and Scoring

  • Used early espresso card stock and its cut at 5 ½ by 8
  • With the 5 ½ along the top of the scoring board you will score it at 1 and 3 5/8
  • The with the 8 along the top of of the score board you will score at 1 ¼, 2 ½, 3 ¾, 5, 6 ¼, 7 ½
  • 6 Pieces of DSP measuring 1 by 2

Instructions

  • Cut the cardstock to the length you need
  • Start scoring all the score lines
  • Enforce all the score lines with a bone folder to get a nice crisp clean edge
  • The piece that is bigger you will cut the corner off

  • Also cut the bottom off

  • On the bottom with the smaller squares you will use your envelope punch board to punch out notches along all the score lines

  • Once you notched out all the way along. You are gonna cut up the notches

  • Use tear and tape and add tear and tape on the top of the larger squares and below the score line and also the small tab front and back of the tab

  • Remove backing and fold down the large square, not all the way as the small tab has to slot ingo the folded down piece

 

  • Flip the mug upside down and start gluing the tabs down

  • Use a 2″ circle punch and punch out two circles, one for the inside and one for the outside

  • Take the 1 ¼” circle punch and punch out the circle, then take the 2″ circle punch and punch around the 1 ¼” circle

  • Make two score lines, this is your handle
  • Place the DSP all around your mug and then attatch the handle
  • Put glue between the two score lines, once it is all dry put some glue on both sides and close the handle

Triangle Origami Box

 

Side View

 

So cute and what is nice is you can add anything inside and you can make it any size depending on the size of paper you start with! All you need are 3 square pieces of paper – you pick the size depending on how large or small you want the finished treat holder.  So fun!

Divider

Cutting and Scoring

  • Start with three pieces of DSP cut the same size, I used 6 by 6

Instructions

  • On all three pieces the paper is gonna be folded the same way
  • First fold the paper in half , then you will fold it in half the other way so when you open your paper it looks like a cross on your paper
  • Next fold point to point and you should have a triangle shape
  • Once you have the triangle shape, take the point of the paper and fold down and do it on both sides
  • Repeat on all of the 6″ by 6″ pieces of paper
  • You will then interlock all the pieces
  • Glue down the bottom and that’s it

Aqua Painters – Stamp with Shar

Good Morning Stamping Friends,

I have recently found a wonderful technique using Aqua Painters. Who knew. Today’s card is so beautiful. I love how this card turned out.

 

How stunning is this card!

Card Inside!

 

Cutting and Scoring

  • Card base is whisper white cut at 5 ½ by 8 ½ scored at 4 ¼
  • Pool Party piece is cut at 4 by 5 ¼
  • Whisper White piece is cut at 3 ¾ by 5

Instructions

  • I used the flower and stamped two of them on the 3 ¾ by 5 piece.
  • While I still had the flower on the block I opened the card and stamped one on the inside too.
  • On a scrap piece of paper I stamped the sentiment “Sending wishes your way” I pressed ink into my lid of my ink pad and with the aqua painter I let a few drops go into it, making it watery and picked up the color and brushed the color over the ‘”wishes”
  • Punched out a 2″ circle out the pool party cardstock.
  • Using the different colors I colored in all the flowers and really not paying much attention to the lines.
  • I adhered the pool party to the whisper white and then adhered the 3 ¾ by 5 to the pool party piece.
  • My sentiment for the front I used the 1 ¾ circle punch and punched it out, then adhered it to the 2″ pool party piece.
  • On the 2″ pool party I put fast fuse on the back and went around with the twine and I then put dimensional’s on it and put it on the card front.
