Stampin’ Up! UK Envelope Punch Board Week – The Soap Gift Box and more!
I felt it only right that I design a box for my soap maker customers. It’s you guys who first liked/commented/shared my videos, came shopping with me, and joined my team.
And yes, while I (now!) know there is no such things as a standard sized bar of handmade soap, one of the most common sizes I’m asked to make is for a bar that measures 3.5 x 3.5 x 1″, so it was with that in mind, that I created this box for you.
There is a bonus also in that you can fit a decent number of mini 3×3 cards into it also, but as you will well know, I will always work to get the very best used out of a piece of cardstock or paper, so I was quite savvy with this particular box and managed to get not only the belly band for the box itself but enough left over cardstock to make a 3 x 3 card, and more left over to use for the punch background purposes.
So without any more natter, here is my box that is dedicated to my Soap Customers, but is also a fabulous size for a multitude of other things.
And the dimensions, corrected from the video, I think I was filming my 8th or 9th in one day at that point…
Cardstock – 7 x 7″ (17.7 x 17.7cm)
Belly Band – 1 3/8 x 10″ (25.5 x 3.3cm)
Card blank – 6 x 3″ (15 x 7.5cm)
DSP for box – 3 1/4 x 3 1/4″ (8 x 8cm)
DSP for card – 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 (7 x 7cm)
Line your cardstock up at 2 7/8. Punch and Score
SLIDE your cardstock up to 4 1/8. Punch and Score
Now, rotate your cardstock and simply use the score guide to line up your previously scored lines, punch and score.
Repeat for all remaining sides.
