Happy Wednesday everyone! Who’s up for a brand new Envelope Punch Board project???

This is my box in a box optical illusion project and I love it! You know me and my Envelope Punch Board are best friends, and I love creating with it. So when I was fiddling about the other day with a piece of 6×6″ paper, I wondered if I could make another optical illusion like my original design of the Bag in a Box from 3 years ago. I think I did it!

This one doesn’t require a load of cutting and scoring and punching. It’s as easy as other projects, although helpfully remembering to put that extra 1″ (5cm) punch in that I nearly forget will help….

Super easy, you take your piece of 6×6″ (15 x 15cm) paper, I went with Serene Scenery, and punch and score at 2, 4, 5″ (5, 10, 12.5cm) on the first side, use those as a score guide for the following sides. What you must remember to do is come back to the First side you punched on and put in an additional punch mark at 1″ (2.5 cm) which I nearly forgot… Oops!

So I hope you enjoy the project and I look forward to seeing lots of these soon!
