Hello everyone! I hope that you are having a wonderful holiday season? Popped in to share a few boxes I made with the new Gift Box Punch Board by We R Memory Keepers. nina-yang-gift-box-punch-board-giveaway

Video Demo

As a box lover, I am excited about all the new punch boards. Here are three things I like the most about the Gift Box punch board:
  • It does not require any additional supplies except a paper trimmer. No adhesive needed.
  • Because of the design, the finished box is sturdier than a common scoring board box.
  • We can make boxes up to 4"x4"x4". (The box dies on the market today usually make boxes no bigger than 2"x2"x2").

An Alternative

Shown in the video was one way to finish the box. I would like to share an alternative here. nina-yang-gift-box-punch-board-belly-band-Edit

1. Score, Punch and Fold

I trimmed letter-size cardstock to 8" x 8" and followed the instructions: nina-yang-gift-box-punch-board-score-fold-Edit

2. Mountain Fold the diagonal score lines.

The diagonal score lines were Valley Folded in the video for a smooth outside finish. But we can also Mountain Fold them to add more visual interest to the outside. nina-yang-gift-box-punch-board-side-Edit

3. Staple the flaps to the outside of the box.

4. Use a belly band to finish it up.

I wrapped my box with a simple belly band and tied some twine. nina-yang-gift-box-punch-board-wrapped Quick, easy and satisfying. I had a blast!
