I'm back continuing with Christmas in July.
I've received several emails requesting info on how
to make these Envelope Punch card holders.
The holders are sized to fit A2 cards, and can hold 8 cards and 8 envelopes.
You will need 2 pieces of 12 x 12 cardstock.
Cut one of the pieces into a 9x9 inch square.
Place one edge into the envelope punch board at the 3 1/2 inch mark.
Punch then use the score tool, and make a score line following the diagonal groove in the board.
Now slide the cardstock to the 4 1/2 inch mark. Punch then
use the score tool, and make a score line following the diagonal groove in the board.
You will not need to use ruler at the top of the board again after completing the above steps.
Now turn the cardstock just as you would when making an envelope on the board.
I've darken the score lines so you can see. Place the first score line so
it lines up with the marker. Punch then use the score tool, and make a score line following
the diagonal groove in the board. Slide the cardstock over to the next scored line. Punch,
and score again.
You will continue to turn the cardstock, punch, and score till all 4 sides have been punched and scored.
This is how the scored cardstock will look when you are finished with the above steps.
Cut and remove the top two flaps. See the shaded area.
Those are the two pieces to remove.
On the bottom end cut on the bold line on each side.
Now use the bone folder on all the score lines and make sure to get good creases so
The cardstock can be folded into a box.
Apply adhesive to the flaps. They will be folded up to form the box.
You will also need to apply adhesive to the flaps.
After the box is made apply adhesive to the back of the envelope as
it will be adhered to the back of the card holder.
Set the box aside for now.
With the second piece of cardstock cut two pieces each measuring
5 7/8 x 11
Score one end of each piece at 3/4 of an inch. If you plan to stamp
on the cover that now. Apply
adhesive to both and adhere to the bottom of the envelope card box.
Adhere the the back of the envelope box to the cover.
I used the large oval punch to make the handles of the holder.
Here is a view of the inside. You can decorate the card box however you like.
Side view of the holder closed. I used ribbon to keep the holder closed.
I also wanted to share some more of the cards I made using that One Sheet Wonder that
I posted yesterday. The wooden snowflakes go great with the natural colors I used
on the holder and stamped piece.
Not going to post them all as this post is getting pretty long.
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial. If you have any questions just write me a post.
