What a successful day I had in my studio yesterday!
I decided I wanted to make a different style Envelope Punch Board Gift Card Holder.
In the early stages of this project, I found I had reached a stage where I could have gone in a different direction and turned my project into a greeting card.
I photographed it before I continued - see photograph 6.
Obviously the Designer Series Paper is the wrong way round for a greeting card but it shows you the idea.
The first two photographs show the Gift Card holder, open and closed.
I used Pacific Point and Very Vanilla Cardstock and Pretty Petals Designer Series Paper Stack.
The stamp sets I used are Sprinkles of Life and Cottage Greetings.
I stamped onto Very Vanilla Cardstock using Pacific Point and Olive Green Ink.
I stamped the flowers heads three times
before re-inking to get the variation in the colour.
I put Gold Glitz Dazzling Details in the centres of the flowers.
Photographs 3, 4 and 5 show how I created the sentiment I adhered to the belly band.
I punched out circles of the DSP using the 3/8" Circle Punch and adhered them around the sentiment.
Then I punched out the template using the Decorative Label Punch so I could lay it over my stamping to see if I had adhered the circles in an attractive pattern.
I have now put this template in with the Cottage Greetings Stamp Set so it's ready if I want to copy this idea again some time.
Photograph 6 shows the greeting card which can be made standing as shown or turned horizontally with the fold at the top.
Photographs 7 shows the tab file I made for the recipe box video Recipe Box.
To make the tab I used the Decorative Label Punch and adhered to a piece of cardstock.
Photograph 8 shows tab files I made using the Envelope Punch Board - so much easier and so much neater.
Finally, photograph 9 shows a box I made using the EPB last Christmas.
Yesterday I said I had an idea about putting an insert into a box.
Although it needs a bit of fine tuning, this is the idea I had.
It would be better if the box was deeper so it would take much bigger jewellery than the pieces I have used to demonstrate my idea.
How often do you buy fashion jewellery as gifts for birthdays, Christmas, etc and really need a nice box to put it in?
Well, that's quite a lot for one day - I hope you've enjoyed seeing today's ideas.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
