Hi everyone,

I have another Pinterest challenge for you this weekend, where I browse through Pinterest and try to re-create the project. ย  This week I picked another envelope punch board tutorial, this particular one if a tiny box for a yankee candle tealight.

These little boxes would make perfect wedding favours, and you could tailor them to your wedding colour scheme no problem at all.

Pinterest Challenge : Envelope Punch Board Bows

Hi Everyone…

Today I challenged myself to make something from Pinterest, just to see if it “works for me” .. ย so I chose to make some pretty bows using the envelope punch board by We R Memory Keepers… and guess what? they worked ๐Ÿ™‚ yay!!

Bows 1

So easy to make too! ย  I also recorded a video of me making them, which you can view here

All that you will need is 3 pieces of patterned paper…

  • 1 x 6″ x 1″
  • 1 x 3″ x 1″
  • 1 x 1/4″ x 1″
  • and an envelope punch board.

I plan on making a few more, some with the edges inked and some with the edges scuffed just to see how they compare, and also to incorporate them onto a card

I love how they turned out … and can’t wait to try something else from Pinterest to challenge myself

As always, thanks so much for popping round
