Welcome to my blog again today. I do appreciate you spending time with me. This week I have been sharing projects using the soon to retire Envelope Punch Board from Stampin’ Up! I’m going to miss this great tool, for all the projects it is useful for. Today I have Envelope Punch Board Cup. I hope you like it. I have a template to help you make one too.
Envelope Punch Board Cup
Use the following soon to retire products to make this project:
Work the cup with your Bone Folder to give it a curved effect before adhering it together. The handle is made from using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies and is purely decorative. It won’t hold any weight.
How lovely would this be as a gift? Fill it with chocolates, a scarf, some jewellery. What do you think?
Place a 5 cm or 2″ circle on the base to hide where you have adhered it together. You could place one inside as well to allow you to put something with more substance in the cup.
It could also hold a gift card or movie tickets with some hot chocolate, coffee, tea, a small bag of popcorn. The ideas for using this are endless.
Envelope Punch Board Cup Basics
- Cut Fresh Fig A4 Cardstock to 21 cm x 24.1 cm or 8 1/4″ x 9 1/2″
- Score at3.8 cm, 7.6 cm, 11.4 cm, 15.2 cm, 19 cm and 22.9 cm or 1 1/2″, 3″, 4 1/2″, 6″, 7 1/2″ and 9″
- Score the other way at 8.3 cm and 17.8 cm or 3 1/4″ and 7″
- Fold and burnish all score lines using your Bone Folder
- Use your Envelope Punch Board to punch on each folded score line along the 17.8 cm or 7″ mark, having the edge line up in your Envelope Punch Board at 3.8 cm or 1 1/2″. This is where I have the ovals on the template.
- Cut Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper to 7.6 cm x 21 cm or 3″ x 8 1/4″. Then cut this strip into pieces which are 3.5 cm x 7.6 cm or 1 3/8″ x 3″. So you will have 6 pieces.
- Adhere these pieces to the ‘cup’ using Liquid Multipurpose Glue so they are about 3 mm or 1/8″ below the scoreline at 8.3 cm or 3 1/4″ and just above the cutouts you made with the Envelope Punch Board
- Place Tear & Tape Adhesive on the bottom flaps – the first 2, miss one then on 4, 5 and 6.
- Cut up the score lines and trim off the last piece on the right of the template – the narrow bit.
- Now fold the top down to the wrong side of the template and adhere using Liquid Multipurpose Glue. BUT, do not adhere all of the left-hand side. Leave a bit of it open so the tab on the right will slide in and be hidden.
- Stick the bottom together by putting flap 3 down first and it’s opposite one on top, repeat until all flaps have adhered. Work the cup a bit with your fingers to get the correct shape.
- Slide the side flap from the right, into the left-hand side which you left open. Add some Liquid Multipurpose Glue.
- Cut a 5 cm or 2″ circle for the base using the Layering Circle Framelits Dies
- Use the Layering Circle Framelits Dies and some Fresh Fig A4 Cardstock. Use the 4th and 6th circle dies (counting from the outside to the inside).
- Score the handle piece 3 mm or 1/8″ either side of the middle, fold on score lines and adhere the open ends with Liquid Multipurpose Glue. Adhere the completed handle to the side of the cup
