Envelope Punch Board Projects

Yesterday I shared a fun treat holder for Lindt Chocolate balls made with the Envelope Punch Board and Year of Cheer Specialty Designer Series Paper.  If you missed that post you can click HERE to view.

I promised to share with you some other projects made with the Envelope Punch Board. Last week I had a class with several local gals who wanted to make “crackers”. The Envelope Punch Board is so versatile and useful for so much more than just making envelopes!  We made crackers plus 3 more fun projects…a Ghirardelli Chocolate treat holder, a Santa gift card holder, and a “Peppermint Patty” standing snowman treat.  I found so many ideas on Pinterest and just “tweaked” them to use what I had.  Here’s a few pictures from the event.





Here’s a close up of each of the projects.

They loved the projects and had so much fun making them that they want to meet again for another class to make more projects using the envelope punch board.  There are so many things you can make with this handy tool from envelopes and candy treats to boxes and more! More ideas coming soon!!!

**If you purchase the Envelope Punch Board from my online store I will email you the directions to make each of these projects and send you the “kit” in the mail.

Have a wonderful day!

E is for Envelopes

Welcome to my ABC’s of Stampin’ series. Today we’re talking Envelope Envy. I love the quality of the Stampin’ Up envelopes. Trust me, you can feel the difference. Also, our envelopes match our Very Vanilla and Whisper White Cardstock.  Who knew there were different shades of white?!  I’m all about matchy matchy and when you can see and feel the difference I always go with quality.  Let’s face it, we put a lot of effort and love in to making our homemade cards, our envelopes deserve the same.  If you’ve been following my blog, you know I always make coordinating envelopes to go with my cards.  I decorate my envelopes many different ways…I stamp, emboss, watercolor, add DSP or washi tape, or make my own.


You can scroll through this showcase of some matching envelopes I’ve made to go with my cards.









Here’s a video using one of my favorite tools…the Envelope Punch Board.  You can easily make any size custom envelope with this tool.

The Envelope Punch Board is not just for envelopes either…you can make so many treat holders with this and it also has a corner rounder! I made these tea bag holders using the Envelope Punch Board!


We traveled to England last July and knowing how the English like their tea, I stocked up.  I like the way this makes a nice little presentation to give to someone.

Here’s a candy treat holder I made using the Envelope Punch Board!


Stampin’ Up! also has Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits which makes gift giving (especially for teenagers) quick & easy. Win! Win!  Here’s a short video showing how to make them.

Here’s a card and matching gift card holder I made for a friend using the thinlits.

As you can see there are a lot of options for decorating envelopes. And if that isn’t enough, Stampin’ Up! also has clear envelopes.  Did you know you can mail your cards in clear envelopes?  And it doesn’t cost anything extra! I use clear envelopes a lot to protect my cards that I make to sell or display. You can also use them to dress up a plain gift bag for a quick gift.  Just attach the clear envelope to the bag with Tear & Tape and slide your card in.  No lost cards at parties this way!


Whew!  That was a lot for one day!  I hope you learned something new or saw something that inspires you. I love hearing from you!

Here’s my Back to School Special for today…With a purchase of $30 or more today, I will send you a sampling of Stampin’ Up! envelopes (White, Very Vanilla, Crumb cake, Clear, and two that are handmade by me…one custom envelope using the envelope punch board and envelope paper and one using the envelope thinlits die and DSP). Remember to use the Hostess Code VS23B4FP  when you check out. If your order is $150 or more, do not use the Hostess Code as you will receive Hostess benefits.
