Hello everyone! Nina here! I'm excited to share a quick way to custom-made a necklace holder with the popular Envelope Punch Board and the #MakeItGiveIt Sweepstakes - a partnership between Jo-Ann Stores and the National Military Family Association.

Glamorous Handmade Necklace Holder Box

We went all gold and glamor for our tree and gift wrapping this year. We can all use some glitter and metallic shine for Christmas, can't we? glamorous-gifts

The oversized golden flowers were made with the Flower Punch Board from some Goldie Lox Foil Paper. I've shared a tutorial on the Flower Punch Board earlier here and I am sharing a quick how-tos for the necklace holder made from a piece of kraft cardstock (12"x12") and the Envelope Punch Board. envelope-box-necklace-in   Ever since Laura shared the Box Buster with us, I've been wanting to try it! How cool is it to make any size of a box using our beloved Envelope Punch Board? I measured the necklace (handmade by my crafty friend Kimmers!) and decided the size for the box: 7-1/2" (depth), 4" (width) and 1" (height). I put these numbers in and got the following measurements: Paper Size: 10-3/8" First Punch: 3-1/4" Second Punch: 4-5/8" It took me a while to figure out how to use these measurements but once I did it was super quick and easy to make one! 1. Trim cardstock to 10-3/8" square. Score and Punch at both 3-1/4" and 4-5/8" at one side: envelope-box-first-score If your paper overhangs the board, you can put a piece of cardstock along a score line to help extend it in the same direction. envelope-box-extending-score-lines 2. Rotate the paper 180 degrees to score and punch at 3-1/4" and 4-5/8" on the opposite side. Finished as shown: envelope-box-measurements 3. Rotate the paper 90 degrees, either direction will work. lined up the score lines with the pointer and score the rest of the lines: envelope-box-other-sides Rotate 180 degrees to finish the last side. envelope-box-finished-score 4. Mark the center of the edges of the small flaps and score from where the two score lines crossed: envelope-box-mark-center So we can fold the flaps in as shown: envelope-box-fold 5. Trim one of the longer flaps and close the box: envelope-box-step-4   6. [Optional] Use a Hook & Loop Tab to close the box. You can also fasten with a piece of tape on the outside. envelope-box-valcro-closure 7. Make your flowers. Tutorial hereI paired the size S and L flowers for my box. envelope-box-flower-punch-board The oversized foil flower made all the difference! envelope-box-necklace-out You can also just tie ribbon around the box. I tried some super glittery tape: envelope-box-gliter-bow But the gold looks so cute under the tree! glamorous-gifts-under-tree Wrapping the gifts totally brought my holiday spirit up another level!
