EPB Project 4 Plus Other Ideas

Hello Crafters.

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. 

If you have any questions, please leave a message in the box below or email me at - I'd love to hear from you.

Until tomorrow, happy crafting.
