Tiny Gift Boxes with We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board {tutorial}

This post is brought to you by We R Memory Keepers.

Hello! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We did a bunch of stuff, but I’m not sure how much we actually got done! ha! ;) Next week is spring break! Yay! So maybe we will get lots of projects checked off of our list then.  I did have the chance to play around with my We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board though! Yay! :) This is a fun little crafting tool that can make dozens of different size envelopes, and I found out that you also make other things with your punch board including these tiny gift boxes! So keep reading to see how I did it! :)

For this project you will need a few things:
We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board
scrapbook paper (I used this paper.)
We R Memory Keepers Trim & Score Board
twine
hole punch
paper adhesive or glue stick
scissors

You’ll also need to watch this video. All the measurements & detailed instructions can be found there. So before you make these check that out first! :) I’ll give you a brief tutorial so you can get the idea though. ;)

First you’ll cut your paper into a 6 inch square. So with 1 12x12 inch piece of scrapbook paper you can make 4 boxes!

Using your envelope punch board you will score & punch your paper to look like this. The video comes in really hand for this step! ;)

Then you’ll round the corners of your paper with the handy double punch on your envelope punch board. Pretty cool!

You’ll fold your box on all of the scored lines & then make 4 cuts to make 4 flaps. (See the arrow.) Fold up each side, & then glue the flaps into place to form your box.

Then I used a hole punch to make 4 holes ~ one on each flap.

Then I tied a piece of twine loosely through each hole & tied with a bow.

These would make perfect party favor boxes or a cute gift box for a pair of earrings! I just loved how they turned out, and I couldn’t resist making a bunch of them at once. They were so quick & easy to make. :)

  2. Super cute! My guess is that the finished box is about a 2x2 in on the bottom?
