Packaging makes all the difference!

Hello my stampin friends!  As promised, I have more to share with you!!  Have you ever received a gift that made you smile before you even knew what was inside?  I LOVE packaging - paper, ribbon embellishments - LOVE IT ALL!!!!  :) I have been busy creating in my room and thought you would like to see what I have been up to.

Have you seen the envelope punch board?  No?  Let me show you:

Punch board

What I love about this board...you can make 66 different sized envelopes out of a piece of paper!  Yes, sixty-six!!  I needed some clever packaging to give a set of framelits.  Now a bag is great but the framelits themselves are so flat, it just seemed odd to just put them in a bag so I grabbed my envelope board and went to work.  The board itself has easy measurements to follow.  The first action is to determine how big of an envelope you need.  I needed a 6 x 7 envelope so the board is telling me, I need to start with a 10 1/4" x  10 1/4" sheet of cardstock or paper.  Here is a close up of the board measurements:

The directions are right on the board so no worries about losing them and this board will give you an envelope in minutes!  Here is what mine looks like before assembling:

For this project, I wanted to create a pocket so I cut off one side of the envelope which you can see I did to the left.  Next, I bring the sides together, then bring up the bottom.  Here is what that looks like when assembled:

Now the pattern for this one is a little wild and I wanted to decorate a bit on the front, so I added a piece of coordinating card stock to give me a surface to work with:

Now that is something we can work with right?  So the next part is the best part.....decorating!!  Let's take a look at what I came up with:

Envelope pocket

So one I put thru the Big Shot to add some texture , and the other was unaltered cardstock in Real Red.  I love adding a tag or a cute piece of punch art...SO EASY!!!!!  I also think this would make a great addition to your favorite stampers stash of tools.  :)  Stay tuned this week to see a cute cocoa package and a gift bag of multiple sizes too!  I can't wait to show you!!  Thanks for stopping by!
