SBEBC Envelope Punch Board Class 'A'



PUNCH BOARD classes will soon be starting! And 1st up is the ENVELOPE PUNCH BOARD!



Do you have an Envelope Punch Board, but never get around to using it much? Or wonder how all those different projects can made using the Envelope Punch Board? Maybe you don't have an Envelope Punch Board, but always wanted to get one. Now is the chance to learn how to use it for basic envelope making, and a whole lot of other creative uses! This two part class (A & B) will get you comfortable using the Envelope Punch Board, and teach you just a few of the incredibly creative things that you can make using it. 

Class A will be more simple projects, keeping it to envelopes, envelope card boxes, cards, and bows! Wait till you see what we will be making in Class B!

So let's have a closer look at what we will be making. It may look square in the photo due to the angle, but this is a standard A2 size envelope. How pretty envelopes can be when you make them from design paper collections!


This is the tiniest envelope that a person can make on the envelope punch board. But, the measurements to make it are not on the board!


This envelope is sized just right for a gift card!


...and is not sealed like a standard envelope.



This is a box envelope! For those cards that have a lot of layers or flowers on them.



There many options for this box envelope closure. You can use velcro, magnets, ribbon, or a belly band as we are here.


Now this box envelope is much thicker so it can hold a set of cards to give away, or for an even fuller, thicker card!



This box envelope had a tuck-in closure.

This next project may not look like much, but it is a combo card/envelope for a special purpose.

It holds cash! Just add white or cream cardstock on the upper flap to stamp a sentiment and write a little note.


Next we have something that looks like a mini-file. no, wait! It is it a card? Yes, it is a tabbed card. You cam write or stamp things onto the tabs and add other things, like a sentiment on the front. Great card for someone at the office...


Next you see...what exactly? Well I ran out of designer paper to attach to this project, but you can see what it would look like.

When you open it up, a gift card pops up! All that needs to be done is cut up and add the designer paper, embellish it a bit, and you have a fun kind of card to give that holds a surprise for the receiver.


I don't quite know why, but policy or coin envelopes have always been a favorite of mine. Perhaps it is the interactive part of winding that string around? I will show you how to construct one.





And lastly, we have some bows that we will be making in the envelope punch board. You can make a variety of sizes, and do different things to them to create for your projects.


So that kind of wraps it up as to what we will be learning in this class, but there's more in the part 'B' Class! Yup, there's more. In each class you will be getting step by step instructions for other Envelope Punch Board projects that we will not have time to create in class. But you can take it home and try them out there!

Hope to see you in class!
