Playful Palette Envelope Punch Board Versatile Box

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Playful Palette Envelope Punch Board Versatile Box

I do love a pretty envelope punch board box. The ease to which you can make boxes with this tool is remarkable. Here’s a true story…. I’m going to be moving house in the next month and that means a lot of prep and planning ahead of time to keep my blog and youtube running, even if I’m not going to be at my desk. Yes, I may be moving house, but you’re not, so why should you miss out on projects!

Anyway, I wanted to have 6 projects ready for filming a week or so ago and needed a 6th. So I grabbed a sheet of Playful Palette DSP and my envelope punch board and just started punching and scoring. This is what happened! I hadn’t set any measurements, and to be honest, I hadn’t planned to use the paper for the finished sample. It’s not one that I love all that much, and (shock, horror!) I tend to use it as ‘scrap’ paper. I know, I’m so bad!

But in the space of about 3 minutes, I had a box made and ready to share!

When I came to film, though, I had no idea what may fit in it, so I just grabbed a load of stuff from my Inspiration Drawers next to my desk and dumped them out ready to test while filming!

Gotta love making and sharing on the hoof haven’t you!

So my little ‘quick box’ turned out to be super versatile too!

Have a fabulous Monday everyone, I have a full day of Filming ahead of me ready for my annual SpringWatch series that’s coming soon…!

    Love the tut! Got an epb, I’m using it for tags, envelopes, bows, and cracker boxes, but I hadn’t seen a box like this one before. These would be cute wedding favours or little place card/treat holders for a holiday table.
