Elegant boxed gift cards / tags

I absolutely adore the Springtime foils DSP and have ordered more than ...shall we say one or two packs, to ensure I have plenty before the end of Sale-A-Bration. The quality of this DSP is certainly that of a card stock and so I decided to make a box just to see how sturdy it is. And I can tell you ...its sturdy !

A simple boxed set made using the envelope punch board containing mini note cards or tags. You can use these mini cards either way. I decorated the cards very simply using the " A good day" set and the new scalloped circle punches. I played around with which to use and ended up using a combination of scalloped and plain to get the look I wanted. Finished off with a simple bow made using the bow builder punch, mounted on a copper foil sheet belly band.

I always think why complicate things with elaborate projects when you can let the DSP and the stamps do all the work. 

I do hope you enjoyed this project and will try it yourself. I do have a full step by step tutorial on my Youtube for you to craft along to. measurements and products used are all listed below. Simply click the photos to browse the products in my online store.

So go grab yourself a brew, get comfy and enjoy the video.... happy stamping xxxx Amanda

    I am looking for the link that takes me to the site that will calculate the scoring, punching and paper sizes for the envelope punch board to make boxes, but cannot find it. Could you make it really obvious please? Thanks!
