Tuesday’s Tip #2

Hi everyone!

Welcome to today’s Tuesday’s Tip. These posts are tips about different products, crafting and also ways of stretching the supplies that you already may have. I alternate Technique Tuesday and Tuesday’s Tip just to change things up a bit.

It’s always a good thing when we get more uses out of the products that we buy ~ so today I want to share some projects other than envelopes that can be created with the Envelope Punch Board by WeR Memory Keepers. *Please note: Stampin’ Up! also carries an envelope punch board {Item#133774}.

First though, some of the general details about this product:

*It allows you to make 66 different sizes of envelopes from card stock, envelope paper or patterned paper.

*The paper sizing chart is printed right on the board and the measurements are in inches. However, a sticker chart with measurements in centimeters is included.

*The included scoring tool fits into the convenient storage slot located right in the board.

*A 2-way punch creates fold tabs and rounded corners for a finished look.

*It measures 6 3/4″ x 10 1/2″.

 

So, now onto the different items that can be created.

#1} Envelopes, which stated earlier can be made in 66 different sizes. Making your own allows you to coordinate nicely with the card you are sending. Shown here is an A2 {4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″}, 3″ x 3″ and a gift card envelope.

#2}Envelope Liners to match the card is just the extra touch needed to make the card extra special!

#3}File Folders are always a handy paper product for keeping things organized ~ bills, craft supplies, embossing folders, household receipts, etc. A folder could be made for each color of card stock to store the small bits and leftovers that none of us ever want to throw away.

*Please note: these folders are not full size but even a smaller version can be useful. These measure 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″.

#4}Paper Bows are a pretty addition to gift packaging, cards and scrapbook pages. Even home décor pieces ~ attach a row of these little bows to the bottom of a lamp shade to make an adorable addition to a little girls room.

#5}Card Boxes really do complete a set of handmade cards and envelopes. Make the box, add the cards/envelopes, tie a pretty ribbon around it and you’ve got a finished gift sure to make the recipient smile 🙂  The box shown holds A2 cards (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″) and envelopes.

#6}Library Pockets are great for tucking in tags, photos or anything else you want to preserve in your scrapbooks, albums or journals. They can be made in many sizes.
