14 Days of Valentines - Day 12

For the 12th project in the 14 Days of Valentines, I'm playing with another new toy! I loved the We R Memory keepers envelope Punch Board, well now, they have a couple of new punch boards that make all kinds of favors!
Today, I'm going to use the Pillow Box Punch Board!
Got some pretty cardstock and sheer ribbon.
You need to cut the paper 6" wide and you can make it anywhere from 4" to 12" long. I decided on 6" long. Take the cardstock and align the left side to the "Start line" printed on the board in green.

Punch and score the curve along the top. Score the vertical line on the right side edge.

Move the cardstock over to the left and align the top along the "Nook".

Punch and score again. Move the cardstock to the left again and punch and score the curve. Flip the cardstock around and punch and score the other side

Flip the punch board and insert the middle tab into the reverse punch to make the notch.

Trim off along the curve of the side tab.

Crease and put double stick tape along the tab section.

Assemble the box.
I tied a ribbon around the box and made a bow.

Here's a 4" size box. It's perfect for some fine jewelry, hint, hint!
These Punch Boards really make it easy to whip up some great gifts! There's also a bag and candy favor box punch boards.
