Tutorial – Stampin’ Up! Punch Board Card Boxes

Filed under: Projects — October 24, 2013 @ 11:25 am

I’ve seen several of these card boxes (thanks Janet, Angie, Patty) and wanted to gather my measurements together to make any size box.  These are so quick and easy using the new envelope punch board by Stampin’ Up!

In the chart, I have posted the measurements for our commonly used card sizes.   It looks like you can make any size box by looking on the chart on the board itself.  Add one inch to the paper size, use the same score size for the first score and add one inch to the second score size.  Let me know if this chart is helpful.

Here are some photos to go along with the steps:

You can also cut the tabs off completely if you prefer.

I was a little heavy on the liquid adhesive!

I used the Seasons of Style Designer Paper and Christmas Collectables Bundle to decorate my 3 x 3 box.  I can’t wait to make some cards to match!  All supplies can be ordered at The Cherry Cobbler ribbon and cardstock are currently on the Clearance Rack for a great price!


Added:  here is another way of looking at the process.  For envelopes, you only use the measurement once, then turn 90 degrees and use  the score lines each time.  For the boxes, you use the measurements twice on  OPPOSITE ends.  Then, on the other opposite ends, you use the score lines.  For  square boxes, it is the same (and doesn’t matter), but for rectangular boxes you  need to do it the 2 different ways.

    Thank you for this post, it gives me hope. I am in dire need for the dimensions of CS and score lines to make a box to hold five 3 x 3 1/2 note cards. I have been all over you tube and pinterest and after making boxes just to find out they were too big, I am desperate. Can you please help me or direct me?
