I love a simple gift bag, and with the Gift Bag Punch Board Stampin’ Up!® has made making super cute bags super easy! I know I will be using this punch board lots in the coming months (and even more around Christmas!) but I wanted to give you a quick guide to using the board before we drive into more complex projects with it!
The gift box punch board has the instructions printed onto it so you can refer back at each use, but I thought I would share some tips.
The punch board includes a great scoring tool / bone folder – always store it back into the board so you don’t loose it! It is so easy to loose a great tool like this in your crafty mess
The width of the paper or card stock is important: a small gift back uses 10″ (25.4 cm) wide DSP, and the S line on the board. A medium sized bag uses 11″ (27.9 cm) wide DSP and the M line on the board. A Large bag uses 12″ (30.5 cm) wide DSP and the L line on the board. The length of the DSP (or card stock) is not important, and just varies the height of the final bag, the board suggests using lengths between 4″ (10 cm) and 12″ (30.5 cm) In the video the card stock that I used was 10 x 6″ (25.4 x 15 cm)
The punch may be a little stiff, use the board on a table and stand to punch.
