Envelope Punch Board Gift Boxes - using Stampin' Up! ® products

I love the envelope punch board, and not just for making envelopes! I have been making boxes for gifts. I have some parties booked in during the Sale-a-bration period (ends 31st March), and I thought these boxes would be ideal for either Draw Prize or Hostess gifts, that I will demonstrate how to make at the party itself.

The box below is made from Basic Black 12 x 12" card stock with a lid made from Modern Medley DSP. I decorated the lid with two Real Red Roses made using the new Spiral Flower Die. I love the contrast of the red against the Basic Black and Very Vanilla.

This will be perfect for a hostess gift or Draw Prize gift filled with chocolates. 

I also made a matching card but punched the flowers from the Blossom and Pansy Punches. 

I've also made a shallower box from the Envelope Punch Board, which will filled with notelets. Again, this will be a demonstration during a party and will become the Hostess Gift. I am going to make little video tutorial of how to make it very soon.

I hope you have liked these projects. To recreate them you will need:

Card Stock: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Real Red
DSP: Modern Medley
Tools: Envelope Punch Board, Spiral Flower Die, Paper Piercing Tool, Blossom and Pansy Punch
Embellishments: 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon Real Red, Very Vintage Designer Button


  1. Hi Tracy,
    I love your blog. You have inspired me many times. If I lived closer I would love to come to your classes - Australia is a little bit too far!!
    Just wondering if you are any closer to posting your video tutorial for this gorgeous box?
    Thanks, Bec
