Punching and Boxing

Posted by Alice Morland
We R Craft & Chat
One of my purchases at the recent craft fair was a We R Memory Keepers Candy Box Punch Board - and what a well-designed piece of equipment that turned out to be! The demonstrator had only learned to use it the previous day and I really did only need one demo to know how to use it, as the video we made shows. Even with Ruth's hand problems, the punching was not difficult.

Just in time for Easter we made little crackers filled with chocolate eggs: cardboard, decorated with Easter strips, peel-off borders, name labels and a cheepy chick. You saw a photo in a previous post, and here's another, the rest are in the video.

The crackers are ideal for Birthdays, Easter, Christmas and even Wedding favours, depending on the pattern of card used. At the Ross show, too late, we got egg-decorated cardboard, doing away with the need for all the extra decorating. Imagine for wedding favours, lovely pearlised card, perhaps embossed, for little crackers like the pink birthday one shown in our video!

I was so pleased with the punch board, that I added Pillow Box and Gift Bag as well, from Joanna Sheen; then Ruth also bought the Candy Box and the Gift Boxes boards. Well, she is known as the box queen!

Happy box-making, whichever way you make them, with or without boards. Here's how we did it.
