I do love an Envelope Punch Board project, and you all know that. Heck, there are dozens here on my blog, and when I can take one tool, some paper and make something quirky and unusual, then I’m a happy crafter!

This project is very unusual, it’s nowhere near as complicated as it looks, nor do you use anywhere near as much adhesive as you’d think. Yes, minimal complication and minimal glue! Happy Crafter, see I told you!

And in a change from the norm, I decided to use Envelope Paper for my project. I wanted something a little bit lighter in weight, but also, lighter on the pattern front. I did try this out with a floral paper, but felt that it all became a bit too busy – the shape, the pattern etc. It was like a decoration overload!

So using the plainer paper and just a simple ribbon made much more aesthetic sense to me!

I really do hope you like this project and I’d love to see yours too!

Paper – 8 x 8″ (20 x 20cm)

Punch and Score at 2 & 4″ (5 & 10cm) then marry up the lines with punching as per the video
