Envelope Punch Board Blog Hop: Easter

Welcome to the March edition of the Envelope Punch Board Blog Hop! This is my first time participating in this hop.  I'm so excited to be a part of this hop!  I joined as a way to challenge myself.  I tend to focus solely on cards, so I thought it was time to start thinking outside the box.  This month all of our Envelope Punch Board projects will have an Easter theme.  

With Easter being this month's theme, I naturally needed to make a basket. And of course the Hello Easter stamp set from the Occasions catalog was my go-to stamp set. 

For my basket, I used a variety of the small stamps in this set to stamp an all over one side of the cardstock.  

TIP:  To speed up the stamping, I mounted all of the stamps on one block and stamped all of them at one time!

For the basket's embellishments, I stamped the bunny in Soft Suede and then die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits. I mounted that on a scalloped circle die cut of Pink Pirouette cardstock.

TIP: To fit the Happy Easter sentiment in the banner die cut, I curved the photopolymer stamp as I mounted it on the block.

Ready to give it a try?  Here's a step-by-step tutorial to get you started.

Step-by-Step Tutorial

Measurements are in inches.  For my featured project, I stamped all over one side of the cardstock. I did not do that for the tutorial pictures below.  See the bottom of this post for for a full supply list.

1. Begin with an 8" x 8" piece of cardstock.  Line it up in the punch board at the 2" mark. Punch and score. The punch board is to small to be able to score all the way to the edge of the cardstock.  That's okay, you just need to get the score line started.  Repeat on the remaining 3 sides.

2. Flip over the cardstock to the reverse side and repeat step #1. As you score, your score lines should line up with the score lines you started in step #1.
This is what you cardstock will look like when you are done:

3. On one corner, cut along the score line to the center square.  Repeat on the opposite corner.

4. Use your favorite adhesive to glue the flaps on either side of the cut section to form the basket shape. (I used Stampin' Up! Tear & Tape adhesive).

5. Fold the 4 flaps to the inside of the basket and glue.

6. Add handle and decorate as desired.
