I saw this cute Diamond box on the Stampin’ Up! blog. It was created by one of the Artisan Design team members from Europe. Stampin’ Up! shared her project along with a template and measurements. But it was all in centimeters. I decided to use this as one of my stamp club projects this month and convert the measurements into inches. I wanted to share with you how I did that, and also a little video we filmed during stamp club so you can see how to make the box.
You will use the Gift Bag Punch Board to create the Diamond box base. I converted the measurements to inches. A tip for doing a conversion like that – use the Stampin’ Up! Grid paper – it has inches on one side and centimeters on the other. I placed my card stock on the centimeter side and measured what they said and marked it – then turned over my grid paper and place the card stock down to see where my mark was on the inches side. I used the closest mark and those became my new measurements.
So my piece was 8-1/2″ x 3-1/4″ and I scored a line all the way across at 3/4″. Then I used the punch board. Place on the punch board (scored line down at the bottom). Line up the left edge with the start line. Punch, score horizontal, both sides of the triangle and the little side line in the center. Mark the Side line to the right with a pencil. Move the card stock so the pencil mark is on the start line and repeat.
Watch my video to see how the do that on the Punch board. (I didn’t do any editing on the video – hopefully that’s ok).

Love Blossoms Designer Paper Stack, Watercolor Wings Stamp set, Sweet Heart punch, Bow Builder Punch, Gift Bag Punch Board, Tear & Tape, Blushing Bride Sequin Trim, Very Vintage Buttons, Basic Pearls, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack – flower
