Today I’m sharing FIVE amazing ways to use the new Envelope Punch Board from Stampin’ Up! (Item #133774). Once you see these, you’ll NEED your own and you can order it from My Stampin; Up! Store Since it’s Halloween season, I made most of my samples using the Witches Brew Designer Series Paper (132185), Toil & Trouble and Tags 4 You stamp sets (Holiday Catalog) and Label Bracket punch (132153)
1. Make Envelopes. Stating the painfully obvious, but hey…that’s what it was made for! Just remember this: Envelopes don’t always have to hold just a card 🙂
If you haven’t seen how the Envelope Punch Board works, WATCH the Training Video from Stampin’ Up! I also love having a liner inside the envelope and the best video tutorial I’ve seen (using just a small square of Designer Series Paper) is from Mary Fish and her tutorial can be seen HERE.
2. File Folder Cards. These unique cards are so much fun to make and you could create a whole slew of little file folders to organize things like photos, paper embellishments, receipts, etc.
3. Boxes. Yep, that’s right: The Envelope Punch Board can make BOXES! Here are two of my top picks (because they are both simple, and I’m all about easy!)
Elaine Schader (at Elaine’s Creations) made this box to hold some eerily adorable Halloween tags from four envelopes made with the Punch Board. Check it out on HER BLOG.
Designed to hold 4 cards & envelopes, I discovered (after I whipped this one out in no time flat) that this little gem also holds a King Size Kit Kat! I followed the instructions by Cindy Beach at Stamp, Paper and Ink. The only modification I made was to use my Word Window punch to create a place to insert the top flap and hold it closed.

4. Advent Calendar. When I saw this on the Stampin’ Up! blog post (scroll down past the Game Day banner to see the instructions and downloadable PDF for dates) I thought it was GENIUS!
5. Envelope Tag Book. Here’s one for the memory keepers…or this could be a fun way to present love coupons, a grandma brag book or just for fun.
Tricia over at the Efficient Crafter is the artist for this project and her motto, “Quick…Let’s Craft!” tells me she’s my kind of lady! View her tutorial HERE.
