Envelope Punch Board Bow

Don’t you love finding different ways to use a product?  The adorable bow on this card was made with the Envelope Punch Board.  I cut a strip of card stock 1” x 7 1/8”.  Using the Envelope Punch Board, I punched at 1 ½” & 3 ½” then I flipped it over and punch at 1 ½” repeat on the other side.  I also punched the tail ends.
 
 
Next you use a bone folder to break the fibers in the two middle sections of the bow, then fold each “tail” and secure with a glue dot.
 
 
I finished the bow by wrapping a small piece of 1/8″ taffeta ribbon around the center of the bow.  Who knew you could make a bow from the Envelope Punch Board?  Check back tomorrow when I show you how to make a Gate Fold Card using the Envelope Punch Board.
 

It’s a Party



Anytime I see Japanese lanterns hanging, my first thought is a party.  They have such a festive look to them. I used the Happy Congratulations stamp set from the Occasions catalog and popped a few of the lanterns up with Dimensionals.  I also used a couple of Sale-a-bration items for the texture and verse (oh how I miss the Sale-a-bration items already).

To Recreate This Project You’ll Need:

 

 

I’ll have a Beer!

 
So how about a mug of nice cold beer?  This is the final project we created at my Punch Art Creations Class this past week.  I’m not a beer drinker myself, but I know I’ll be making this card for a few special beer drinkers in my life.  I think it would also look great as a non alcoholic option just by swapping out the So Saffron “beer” with chocolate chip card stock and turn it into a Root Beer Float.
