Hello friends!! Happy Friday! Today myself and my CardMaker blog teamies have fun projects to share with you. If you got here from the blog of my teammate, Michelle, then you are on the right track. If you didn't and you want to see all the projects, then start from the beginning at the CardMaker blog. Below is my finished project. I have also included a few photos of the tool and my little box before I completed it.
We all know that We R Memory Keepers is at the forefront of innovative paper crafting products and that not too long ago they debuted their new punch board envelope maker. Well, they have now added to that line with the Punch Board Pillow Box, Candy Box, Gift Bag and Gift Box and the CardMaker blog team each received one of these fantastic little tools to work with! I received the Punch Board Pillow Box tool and first let me say that this tool is so incredibly easy to use. You will be making wonderful pillow boxes in various sizes in no time flat. When I received my tool I was pleasantly surprised to see that it is relatively small measuring a compact 5 1/4 x 7 inches in size. I love that because storing it will be super easy. I also like that they include a scoring tool that is cleverly stored inside the tool!! When making the pillow box you simply cut your cardstock or patterned paper 6" wide and then up to 12" long. The tool has easy to follow instructions printed on the tool. If you can punch, score and fold, then you can make fun little boxes using this tool.
I started my little box my cutting my cardstock 6" x 6" and then began punching and scoring my cardstock piece. I made a few test pillow boxes and determined that you will want to use a fairly aggressive adhesive like Scor-Tape when adhering the box together. Once completely punched out I assembled the box and added the embellishments. I cut a piece of burlap to fit round the middle and then secured the burlap with some pale blue silk ribbon. The leaves and acorn are from the Stampin Up! set Wonderfall and were stamped on the coordinated die cut pieces using More Mustard & Pumpkin Pie inks. After adhering all the pieces to the box I finished things off with a little bow tied with some cream twine.
I had so much fun making this little package and definitely want to get the other punch boards in the near future. Your next stop is Stacey's blog. You can also check out all the punch boards on the We R website here. I used the color combo from this week's ColourQ and so I will be popping my little pillow project into that challenge.
