Way Back Wednesday – Envelope Punch Board Bag in a Box

Stampin' Up! Demonstrator Pootles - Way Back Wednesday - Envelope Punch Board Bag in a Box

Whoop whoop! Wednesday again and this week we are revisiting a project from almost 2 years ago! 2 years! Wow, time flies doesn’t it??

I fell in love with the Envelope Punch Board a few months after I bought it, but when I fell, I fell hard! I made loads of different boxes and bags, and I’m endlessly delighted when I see them recreated on the internet, and this one is no different.

It’s my optical illusion of a Bag in a Box…. It’s not really a bag in a box, but it definitely looks like one!

I had fun choosing the paper to make it in. Because it’s made with a 6×6″ piece of paper I knew that I would use the Love Blossoms pack, I just wasn’t sure which design to use, so I spent many happy minutes just admiring the paper. Oh I’m so in love with that too!!

Anyway, please do enjoy the project!

S x

Paper – 6×6″ (15.25 x 15.25cm)

Punch and score on one side at 1 3/8″ AND 4″ (4.5cm AND 10.2cm) and then rotate and use the scored lines as a guide to punch and score the 3 remaining sides.

  1. […] ich diese Idee hier bei Sam von Pootles gesehen habe war das sowas von passend :-). Mit dem Envelop Punch Board (J.K. S. 150) hab ich schon […]

  2. […] I have seen this box several times of Pinterest.  I would like to give credit to Sam Donaldson from for the tutorial I watched to make my box. You can watch it here. […]

  3. […] In answer to the question, it’s a bag in a box, a clever idea that gives the illusion of a separate bag inside a box. I wish I could say I came up with it but alas no, I first saw it on Sam Hammond’s blog ( and she has a wonderful video tutorial that you can see here. […]
