Laurence bought me the Ultimate Crafter’s Companion last Christmas which is this amazing gadget that lets you make boxes, envelopes, shaped card blanks and a lot more.
Sadly, I haven’t used it as much as I should but I do get it out from time to time to make envelopes. More to the point, Enveloboxes.
These boxes are especially good for dimensional cards or if you need packaging for a set of cards. Or in this case, a set of crocheted coasters.
Using an envelobox creator is really quite simple;
- You measure the size of your card / gift –
- Measure the depth
- Consult the booklet provided which tells you the dimensions of the cardstock you are going to need.
- Your booklet also tells you where to add your score lines
- Score, cut and paste and et voila!
Of course you are going to want to embellish it 🙂
Post embellishment, here’s what my coaster box looks like:
I’ve used Memento Dew Drop Inks and a stamp set from Craft Asylum called Meadow Sweet – it’s the sweetest set of stamps and I love love LOVE it.
How pretty are those flowers?
Love the colour of these mini inkpads.
Thanks for stopping by!
