Envelope Punch Board Daisy Easter Basket

by Joanne James28. March 2018 17:30

It's the week before Easter already and so today I'm sharing a couple of really simple 3D projects that I made with a group of wonderful ladies last month that are perfect for holding Easter treats and also fit with the challenge over at Global Design Project this week:

The first one is an super easy Easter basket made with one of my most favourite tools EVER, the Envelope Punch Board  - take a look:

 

I love the Envelope Punch Board - my Envelope Expert and Box Buster tools are testament to that! - but it's great for lots more fun projects besides. Here I made my basket out of one of the Delightful Daisy DSP papers, decorated with some stamped and punched daisies and some faceted gems - a rather grown-up Easter basket, if you will, given the absence of bunnies! These little baskets are so easy to make and will hold a small full size egg or a collection of smaller ones. Here are the instructions in case you would like to make one too: 

  • Take a sheet of paper measuring 6” x 6”
  • Punch and score using your Envelope Punch Board at 1 ½” on all four sides
  • Turn over the sheet and repeat the step above on the reverse
  • Cut the flaps on each side to the first score line
  • Fold flaps either inside or outside to create your side panel and decorate with daisies or your chosen embellishment
  • Trim centre ends if desired (as I've done here) or adhere to the outside of the basket
  • Cut handle 15cm x 1.5cm and attach to sides

You can see more of these baskets in lots of other colours over on my Facebook page here, including some pictures of the ladies crafting 'in action'.

We also made some of the smaller egg carrier baskets, again using a piece of 6" x 6" paper and the Envelope Punch Board, this time using some of the Petal Garden DSP and some of the lovely free Sale-A-Bration Calypso Coral Shimmer Ribbon (only 4 more days to get your hands on this!) and a sweet Easter tag:

 

Instructions for this basket are as follows:

  • Take a sheet of paper measuring 6” x 6”
  • Punch and score using your Envelope Punch Board at 1¾” and 4” on the first side then use the score lines and guide to punch and score the remaining sides
  • Use a 3/4" circle punch to create the handles on the inner pieces and bring these up on the inside, adhering your flaps on the outside of these 

I'm mindful the instructions are not the easiest to follow without a video - watch this space and I'll see if I can make a quick one later! 

I had such a fun evening with my hostess Jane and her family and friends making these projects, and, having placed their orders, enabling Jane to earn rewards and free product, further boosted by the current Sale-A-Bration promotion. Whilst Sale-A-Bration is coming to an end in 4 days time, I am still taking party bookings into April, May and beyond, so if you would like a fun evening in with friends, crafting fun projects and earning some free Stampin' Up! product into the bargain, do get in touch.

Here are the visual summaries of the key products used on today's projects for you to pin for easy reference:

Daisy Delight And The Daisy Punch Bundle - A No Brainer!

by Joanne James7. June 2017 07:00

Today I've a couple more daisy cards for you - both the same design, just using alternative colourways. Here's the first one, featuring Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Emerald Envy and Gold:

 

Here's the second card I created using exactly the same stamps and layout, simply changing the colour palette - this time Peekaboo Peach, Wisteria Wonder, Old Olive and Silver:

 

 Here's the low-down on today's card:

Take A Strip Of Paper - Believe it or not, today's cards started out as a few designer series paper offcuts; literally leftovers from another project! I had been busy creating a bunch of customer thank you cards with full size cardfronts featuring the gorgeous patterns in the Delightful Daisies designer series paper packs to go out with this month's customer orders, and had a whole bunch of narrow strips leftover. I could have thrown them away - instead I used them to create the horizontal lines for my punched flower to rest on and to inspire the colour combinations for the rest of my card. Waste not, want not and all that!

Buy The Bundle - As my blog post title suggests, you could but the Daisy Punch alone - why would you though when you can get the Daisy Delight stamp set with it as a bundle with 10% off into the bargain? For me the bundle really is a no brainer: it has this lovely daisy stamp that I've used here to add detail and colour to your daisy petals and centres and it also comes with a number of other pretty florals that can be coloured or used for a tone-on-tone look as I have here to create my background. There's a couple of thank you sentiment combinations too. So many more creative possibilities and a great price point at £27.75. 

Add A Gem - In addition to some ribbon, I've also added one of the new faceted gems to the centre of each of my daisies - I love the sparkle these add to a card!

Here is the visual summary of the key products used on today's project for you to pin for easy reference:
