Another Box with the Envelope Punch Board

After looking around this evening I found the measurements for the taller box that I used for two gifts last Christmas and thought I would add them here since we are discussing boxes today.

The directions to create this box are exactly the same as the box in my Let’s Make a Box post; however you will need two (2) pieces of 12” x 12” cardstock to get the extra height.

To create the base of the box, punch and score at the following measurements:

5”

3 ¾”

5”

3 ¾”

Punch the corresponding score lines to complete the base.

To create the top of the box, punch and score at the following measurements:

5 1/8”

3 7/8”

5 1/8”

3 7/8”

Punch the corresponding score lines to complete.

Assemble the box base and lid in the same manner as described in the Let’s Make a Box post. Again, if you would like to add the inside panels for a more finished look you will need to cut two pieces of cardstock to the following dimensions:

Base – 6 3/8” x 4 5/8”

Top – 6 ½” x 4 7/8”

Remember to dry fit them to ensure a proper fit before adding your adhesive of choice to secure it.

The finished size of this box is 6 ¾” x 5” x 2 ¼” with the base alone measuring 2 inches deep.

I didn’t do any extra decoration on the lid of this box, but if you want to do that keep in mind it’s easier to decorate before the lid is assembled.
