Hello, 


It's time for another BLOG HOP and Inspirational Challenge from Scrapbook Boutique .

For my April project I got out the Envelope Punch Board making some little domed boxes to fill with Easter treats.



Made using a 6" square of card stock these little boxes fit three small eggs and a chick.......just right to give to friends at the craft group as an Easter token.


I've put together a photo tutorial to show how you punch, score and assemble these. If you want to mark the page and come back after you've completed the Blog Hop.  I'll also add it to my Tutorials and Such Page :). The requirements for these three boxes are listed below.

For those of you who own an Envelope Punch Board you might be interested in the following link that takes you to a 'Box Buster" on The Crafty Owl's blog.  This helps you calculate the punch and score lines for any box shape.......clever!!!

Enjoy the rest of the hop....................

This next photo shows clearly the score lines you'll need to line up.





Decorate with sentiment and fill with small treats.

Gorgeous boxes Sue! I must give this a try with my punch board - there are so many things you can do with this tool, other than envelopes, aren't there? Thanks for the tutorial - a great confidence booster! Hugs, Ann

Thank you so much for more ideas on how to use my envelope board. I love that I can now make boxes along with envelopes (as well as these boxes being different to the pillow boxes I've made). I'm set for every occasion! :) These are so cute with the flower and handle.
