Envelope Punch Board Gift Box - Colour Challenge #gdp041

| on
Hello, and welcome to my blog. I have been creating some bits and pieces for this weeks Colour Challenge for the Global Design Project #gdp041. And here are the colours we are using this week:

I find with a Colour Challenge that less is more, and I usually create a 3D item. I wanted to make a Gift Box for a Birthday present, and using the 'Envelope Punch Board' this is my creation for this week:

A tiny gift box made from 'Sweet Sugarplum' cardstock. The top part is sitting on a belly band that slips off to reveal the envelope opening at the back. 

Measurements for the box: 
Cardstock: 5 1/4" x 5 1/4"
First punch: 2 1/4" and score
Second punch: 3" and score

A close-up of the 'Bow Builder' - using the Die cut from the 'Bloomin' Hearts Thinlits Die' to cover the 'Sweet Sugarplum' bow. It reminds me of Lilac Wedgewood. 

The notecards are 6.5cm x 6.5cm (2 9/16" x 2 9/16") and also made using the 'Sweet Sugarplum' cardstock, and a 'Whisper White' mat. (They fit inside the Gift Box perfectly.) 
I adhered the Whisper White 'Bloomin' Hearts Die' cut to the punched images; 'Sweetheart', 'Elegant Butterfly' & 'Pansy'. I then re-punched the images to cut the overlay of the die. And finishing off with sweet sentiments from the 'Fairy Celebration' stampset. These punched images still remind me of Lilac Wedgewood!
