Envelope Surprise with Envelope Punch Board


Envelope Punch Board, adhesive, scissors, card stock and  treat

Step 1:

Cut a piece of card stock 5 inch x 5 inch. Place edge on Envelope Punch Board at 2 3/8 inch marker. Score card stock. Turn and score along the remaining 3 sides at 2 3/8 inch. The right shows what all 4 sides should look like. Hard to see all 4 sides with the glare. You will notice that the score lines do not go all the way to the edge of the paper. Simply finish the score lines to the edges.

Step 2:

When you have scored the lines to the edge you will see tiny triangles. Cut the tiny triangles out as shown on the right

Step 3:

Score 1/8 inch on each of the 4 panels. You can use the EPB and eye ball it like I do or use a score pal board. With all 4 sides scored you should see this to the right. Pre-fold all your scored lines to help create box

Step 4:

Place glue dot in the center and fold in side panels. Add adhesive to the bottom panel and fold towards center. Fill with treat and finish decorating as desired. Since this is for a school project I used a glue dot to hold top flap closed. You can use velcro for a reusable open and close, a button and twine combination. Options are wide open for you.

Step 5:

Here is my final envelope surprise with treat inside. Wrapped twine around the paper panels, added a stamped Heart die cut to the center with a button twine bow. Easy and fun for Valentines day. The box can be created for any size using the Envelope Punch Board. What a great feature on the board for a bonus. Enjoy!
