More From the Gift Bag Punch Board

I don’t know about you, but I’m holding my breath waiting for tomorrow.  I’m making my list and checking it twice so that I’ll be ready at midnight.  But, until then I must stay calm and craft on with what I have.  And what I have, and am obsessed with right now, is the Gift Bag Punch Board.  You guessed it, I’ve got yet another alternate idea for creating with it.

Here’s what I did today:

A2 card box mad using the Gift Bag Punch Board: created by

This cute box that’s just the right size to hold a half dozen handmade cards and envelopes.

It’s perfect for gift giving.

A2 card box from - open.  It's made with the Gift Bag Punch Board

The base of the box is Cucumber Crush.

On the Whisper White top, I’ve added a band of Cherry On Top washi and

a Cherry On Top designer paper bow cut with the Gift Bow Bigz Die.

Playing once is good but, twice is even better.

Watermelon Box from - made using the Gift Bag Punch Board

This box is a bit shorter and would also be perfect as a gift as you attend parties this summer.

Or how about putting a little something in it for those who spend the night with your family during vacation?

The base of this box is Watermelon Wonder.

The watermelon slice was created using Oval Framelits for cutting Cucumber Crush and Watermelon Wonder cardstock.

The Basic Black seeds were punched with the new Tree Builder punch.  Lots of great/useful shapes included on this punch.  No surprise there, just sayin’.

The slice is raised on Stampin’ Dimensionals so that the lid easily slides on behind it.

Let’s don’t forget the strip of Cucumber Crush Lace Trim across the top of the lid.  The ribbon gives it that one last something needed for a finished look.

Want to make some of these yourself?

Here’s a video for you:
