Laura here today with a fun treat packaging idea for Father’s Day featuring the 123 Punch Board and the Banner Punch Board. These little necktie gift box envelopes would be perfect to surprise dad with a bunch of photos, a gift card, or any little thin treat!
To create the gift box envelope, you will need your 1-2-3 Punch Board. I wanted the envelope to be able to hold 4 x 6 inch photographs, so I followed the guides on the punch board to create an envelope that would fit that size card.
You will start by lining up your trimmed paper at the punch guide. Then, score the paper on both the A and B envelope score lines.
Rotate your paper 90⁰ and line up score line A with the envelope score groove. Score both the A and B lines again. Repeat this process until you have punched and scored all four sides.
Use the corner rounder to punch all four corners of the envelope. Fold all the score lines and assemble the envelope with adhesive.
To create the necktie you will need the Banner Punch Board. Start by trimming your necktie paper to 2 inches wide. Then, use the banner punch board to cut a V shape at the bottom of the paper as if you were going to make a small crest banner using the cutting guide at the top.
Trim your paper to 5 ½ inches long. Using the guides on the banner punch board turn the top of your tie sideways and align it with the horizontal blue 8 line and the vertical white 2 ½ line. Cut a notch from the side of the tie. Repeat this process on the opposite side.
Use a scrap piece of necktie cardstock and cut notches in the top of 2 inch strip, like we did with the tie piece. Cut the scrap horizontally where the notches make a v-shape. Attach this to the top of the necktie with adhesive. This makes it look like the tie has the extra little knotted piece at the top.
Attach the tie to the envelope with adhesive and you are ready for gift giving. You could embellish these even further with the word Dad, Father, Grandpa, or even your special guy’s name.
