Creativity With Punch Boards

We R Memory Keepers has come out with four new punch boards, and I was able to play around with a few today. I made the following gift bags. I try to think outside the box and made them bigger than instructions for the board allows.
The first is one that is 7" wide. You can actually make it as wide as 9 1/2" using two pieces of 12 x 12 cardstock. I am hoping to get a tutorial on YouTube to show you how.

This is the smallest width that the board instructions allow for. I am going to see if I can make a smaller one...

This is another 7" wide one but is not as tall. I used mostly Graphics 45 papers.

You can see there is quite a difference between the sizes, so you can make a good variety of bag sizes using this punch board. Making homemade packaging for gifts is just too fun.

Here I used the candy box punch board but this box is much larger than the directions allow for. This used a full size 12 x 12 paper.

And here I tried Bona's tutorial on making a double pillow box... as she states it is a little tricky but looks adorable when finished.

These punch boards are so fun and easy to use. There are lots of fun tutorials on YouTube as well.
I can see these will be a great addition to the studio.

Thanks for checking me out today,
Hope you all have a Very Merry Christmas
and
A Happy New Year
if I don't get to post again before hand.
