Anything but a card

Hi all and welcome to August's Jems blog hop.

This is a box we made in my last class using the envelope punch board. My inspiration came from Pootle's lovely box but I changed the measurements slightly using the indispensable Box Buster  Thank you Sam and Joanne!

My box holds 4 M&S tea lights

Tranquil Tide Card Stock
6.5” square
Very Vanilla Card Stock
1 3/8” by 11” strip

Using the Tranquil Tide card make a box using the Envelope Punch Board, punch and score at 1.5” and 5” turn through 180 degrees then punch and score again at 1.5” and 5”. Then following the score lines score and punch on the 2 remaining sides. Fold and trim as shown.

Randomly stamp the long strip of Very Vanilla and cut in to 2.25” long pieces, attach to the box sides and assemble the box.
Feel free to have a go yourself!
