TutorialFlower Size: S (5" dia.) Paper Size: 2-5/8" x 12"
1. Punch and Score:Follow the directions printed on the board.
2. Fold the Paper:"Mountain Fold" means that you fold the paper down at score-line to create a "mountain"; "valley fold" means that you fold the paper up at score-line to create a "valley". Keep folding and you will see a flower shape forming:
3. Finish the loop:Add adhesive to the first little triangle as shown and adhere the two ends together. And when opened up, you will get a flower!
4. Curl the Petals:I think it is a genius idea to include a roller in the board! Curled petals give the flower a more realistic look.
5. Add StemWe get 10 sets of stems in one Stem Kit. I punched a scallop circle to use as a simple layer with the flower. Remember to add the beautiful center stem piece before you screw on the end: Easy, peasy, right? All you need is to pick your flower size and punch away! Here are the sizes I used on my project:

How to Make the Lucky Clover
1. Download template: http://cl.ly/2s1G3m3M272f, print and cutout as indicated.
2. Trim paper to 3-1/2"W x 7"L, score every 1/4" widthwise. Score and fold in half lengthwise, pattern side in.
3. Put the straight edge of the template against the fold and trace the scallop edge on the back.The black solid lines on the pattern indicate score lines. You don't need to score/fold the pattern itself. The lines are there so that if you don't have a scoring board, you can use the lines as guides to score your paper.
4. Cutout the scallop edge, open up your paper and fan-fold. Start with a mountain fold on either end.
5. Fan-fold means alternating your mountain folds and valley folds.
6. Secure the center with floral wire
7. Fan out to desired shape and we are done!A quick note: If you are attaching the shamrock to an open surface, secure the wire with some washi tape can help protect fingers from the sharp edges. Now head back to Pebbles Blog to check out the finished project! Thank you for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
Video DemoAs 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 AlternativeShown in the video was one way to finish the box. I would like to share an alternative here.
1. Score, Punch and FoldI trimmed letter-size cardstock to 8" x 8" and followed the instructions:
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.
3. Staple the flaps to the outside of the box.This finish will make the square boxes look like a take-out box. (As shown in the video.)
4. Use a belly band to finish it up.I wrapped my box with a simple belly band and tied some twine. Quick, easy and satisfying. I had a blast!

SuppliesPrintable Christmas Countdown Activity List (free download here!) Paper Scissors Adhesive String (I used twine) Envelope Punch Board (Or a scoring board to make envelopes) Crazy Mesh (Gold Metallic) [Optional] Decorative Punches [Optional] * All supplies were found and bought at Jo-Ann Store (coupon linked below)
The TreeThe first thing I did was to wrap the tree with some gold metallic mesh for an instant festive lift. We've had this tree for a long time. I think it is easy to find an alternative or you can just hang the envelopes together on a hook or a string across your mantel.
How to make the envelopesI used two sizes of envelopes on my tree. The activity cutouts from my list (linked above) will fit nicely in the smaller envelopes: Cut paper to 3"x3" and start scoring at 1-3/4" to make this envelop: For this envelope size, two of the corners will stick out a little. You can snip off the extra or use a corner punch with a bigger radius: I used an 1" circle punch to punch the numbers out here but you can just cut around them by hand. Remember to put the twine (for hanging) and the activity cutout in before you seal it. For the bigger envelope - Cut paper to 4"x4" and start scoring at 2-1/4". I made this envelope size so I can use the bracket numbers cutout from the paper.
Decorate the EnvelopsAlmost all paper pads have a couple of journaling or accent paper. I cut the elements out to decorate the envelopes.
More PhotosDid you notice the big red doily the tree is sitting on? It was punched with a doily punch! I've been wanted to try one of these ever since I saw them at CHA back in January this year. And Thanks to the coupon, I finally brought it home!

I made it within 10 minutes:) The finished heart is about 8-1/2" - a good size for home decorations. This is also a great way to use some of the pretty paper we've been
hoarding collecting. I used my favorite V Day collection of all time: With Love by Pebbles.
