This box coordinates with the long envelope and card I shared in last week’s post. Yes, for those of you who are keeping track, this is a different box than the one from the one I talked about last week. I decided I really needed to redo the video and I was all out of Soft Suede 12″ x 12″ card stock. So I made the box a bit shorter, requiring just 8 1/2″ x 11″ card stock. That I had in all the colors, so I went with the Tranquil Tide to match the card better.

Yes, the Envelope Punch Board not only makes custom envelopes, it also makes boxes. They’re really made about the same way. You just need to add to the Paper Size and slide the paper over the same amount to make a second score line on each side. But what you add is actually on the diagonal. I’m good at math, but it was easier for me to actually make a bunch of boxes and measure.

So that’s what I did. I started with the smallest size envelope, added 1/4″ to the given Paper Size measurement, and then after the first punch, I slid the card stock over 1/4″ one each side to make a box. I made the next box the same way, but added another 1/4″. I kept going until the paper size got to 12″ x 12″. I measured each box to keep track of how much to add for the desired height.

But even I had trouble using that chart since I started with how much to add, not how high the box would be. When Margie V. asked for a cheat sheet for the Envelope Punch Board like I had done for the Gift Bag Punch Board Directions, I decided it was time to redo the chart.

I make custom boxes all the time. I didn’t even think to talk about them during my craft room tour. When my friend Barbara asked where I got the drawer organizers I realized I should make a video. These boxes are so quick, I’ll make them when I’m making lots of the same cards to hold elements until I’m ready for them. The same style boxes can be made to hold treats or whatever. You can make a top for the boxes using the exact same pattern, just allow an extra 1/16″ for the center section.

I filled my wood crate with birthday candles, candy, and red balloons, but a gift card might fit too. To be honest, I have several little wood crates on my desk holding my paper sampler, little sticky notes, and other odds and ends. I think they’re very cute! They just take a half sheet of card stock.

This is a quick gift that would look lovely on your Easter table or just a little treat gift. I used the That’s the Tag bundle. That’s the Tag has greetings for weddings, Mother’s Day, new babies, birthday, congratulations, thinking of you, and thanks. But I wanted it for Easter, so I used Teeny Tiny Wishes. That set has a greeting for just about everything!

This box is so beautiful! And did you notice the Window Box Thinlits coordinates with the Sending Love Designer Series Paper® stack? In the video I shared a couple of tricks for working with the Thinlits. For instance, I put a piece of Washi Tape to mark where to place the trapezoid pieces so they align properly.

This box is so very beautiful! The Cable Knit folder gives such an impressive texture. Of course, you could expand the gift card to be a full greeting card and putting the embellishment from the box onto the card.

The directions and video show how to make envelopes large enough for the 2 3/4″ cards and small enough for the 3″ box.
