Hello friends! Today we’re sharing a past blog project that’s one of our most popular posts for Punch Board Week. Check it out!
Aly Dosdall here again to share a fun punch board project. Using the 123 Punch Board I made a coin style envelope to hold my planner accessories, and then I punched it with the Planner Punch Board to fit into my small Heidi Swapp Memory Planner. I used some beautiful paper and embellishments from the new Heart of Home collection by Jen Hadfield for Pebbles Inc.
This envelope is perfect for storing embellishments, photos, receipts or other ephemera, and I love how easy it was to make with these punch boards. Honestly, I’m not sure what I did before punch boards! Ha!
To make the coin envelope, I followed the instructions on the 123 Punch Board to make a 4 x 5 1/2 inch envelope. I love that the instructions for envelopes, boxes, and bows are printed on the board. So handy!
I cut my paper to 8×8 inches, and then lined it up on the board at 3 1/2 inches. Then I followed the instructions to punch and score on all four sides of my paper.
There’s no need to round the corners for this envelope. Instead, I pulled out my Trim and Score Board and trimmed 7/8 inch off the top, bottom, and one side of the envelope.
To assemble the envelope, I added some Sticky Thumb Red Double Sided Tape to the side that I trimmed, and then folded up the bottom flap first, then the untrimmed side, and lastly the trimmed side.
In order to keep the envelope 4 inches wide for photos, I added a 1 x 5 1/2 inch strip of cardstock for punching with the Planner Punch Board.
I added a strip of washi tape to the front and back of the strip for added support for the punched holes and as an embellishment.
Next, I added a button and string closure to the envelope. I used leftover ones from some Typecast treat bags, but you can easily make your own with a 1/2 inch hole punch, some brads (or eyelets), and some twine.
Finally, I added some embellishments from the Heart of Home collection on the front and back of the envelope.
I added it to my planner and filled it with some stickers, tags, die cuts, and other embellishments for my planner.
I hope this Coin Envelope Planner Insert has inspired you to experiment with punch boards in your planner. Thanks for stopping by today. Happy planning!
