Petal Card Double Punch – Mini Box

Published by under cards | Mar 15 2011

Petal Card Double Punch boxes

The Petal Card double punch creates a unique and distinctive punched shape.  I'm often asked all sorts of questions about this punch so today I thought I'd share a couple of fast facts.

  • It's called a 'double punch' because it does two actions… it punches and creates score lines all in the same move.
  • It's not the kind of punch that you can flip over to line up your stamped image. In fact, you can't see anything except metal when you turn it upside down because of its unique cut-and-score action. But it's the perfect size to add an inchy image (1 inch square) layer, as we did in these cute boxes above. The images were from the Level 2 hostess set called Cute By The Inch.
  • The punched shapes create all kinds of mini cards, mini envelopes and mini boxes. They are the perfect size for a chocolate or a cute little teeny tiny gift.

At the stamping day we had at my place the other week we made these boxes by joining FOUR punched shapes side by side, then joining the end tab to the first tab. Fold the bottom in to close the base, and you're done!


Joining TWO punched shapes creates a different kind of box… an even smaller one!

Got any other ideas? I'd love to hear them, and will share them in a future post.


Now while I'm here, a big thanks to Andrea Buckland who graciously gave me the Stylish Blogger Award. I'm not sure I'm deserving, but thank you Andrea.

As per the rules, I'm to link to 8 other bloggers (which I'm yet to do… but it's on my ToDo list!) and share 8 things about myself. Hmmmm, let me see…

1. I've been married for 14 years and have 3 kids (10, 7, 4).

2. I love stamping and papercrafts in general, but am also a quilter and have a serious infatuation with fabric.

3. I am an Apple Mac-loving convert. 

4. I have Hashimotos thyroiditis.

5. We're 'tree-changers'. We moved from the city 5 years ago and have loved every minute of living in a small town 'out in the country'.

6. I used to work in publishing (writing TV guides for the daily papers).

7. I've been a Stampin' Up! demonstrator for coming up to 4 years, and it's the best job I've ever had. 

8. I'm scared of slugs. They give me the heebie-jeebies.


I hope you've been enjoying some quiet and creative moments of late. I've been busy busy busy, but that just makes the relaxing time even more special. Okay, the truth is I've been playing with beeeee-uuu-tiful new products that will be available from next month when the Autumn-Winter Mini catalogue is released. (One of the benefits of being a demonstrator is that we get to pre-order goodies from yet-to-be-released catalogues!) Mmmmmm.

The good news is there's still 2 weeks left of Sale-a-bration. And 2 weeks left of the Summer Mini catalogue.

Two weeks!?! Where has the year gone!

Happy stamping,
