Today on the blog I have a great giveaway for fellow crafters, a bundle of crafting materials from Crafter's Companion, including two fantastic products - the Envelobox and Boxer embossing boards. The Envelobox board and the Boxer board are both part of the Ultimate Pro crafting system, which is a compact carry case which can be used with a variety of inserts to create boxes, card blanks, envelopes and more. Although these boards are designed to slot into the Ultimate Pro, they can also be used independently and as you can see below I've been having a lot of fun crafting with them.
The prize bundle is pictured above and consists of:
The Boxer Board
The Envelobox Creator Board
The Advanced Construction Techniques DVD
1 pack of double sided A4 Centura Pearl cardstock
1 tape runner
1 bottle All-Purpose Glue

The Envelobox Creator board
The Envelobox board is used to make 3D envelopes to protect your larger and more delicate cards or as a small gift box. You can make envelopes in hundreds of different sizes, and of several different thicknesses. Although it comes with full instructions it's a little complicated to work out until you've got the hang of it, so it's worth watching a video tutorial to start with.
The board comes with a booklet containing sizing guides. You need to cut your cardstock to the correct size, then place the cardstock onto the embossing board and use the scoring tool to mark out the creases. Then just fold it up, make a couple of cuts for the corners, glue it together and then you are done.
These are the first basic box envelopes that I made, they can be neatened up a bit by rounding off the corners and then decorated as you wish. The board also has some patterns that you can trace over with the scoring tool to add a pretty embellishment, you can just see it on the flap of the green envelope above.
The Boxer board
The Boxer board can be used to make boxes in a variety of sizes, shapes and styles, and it works in a similar way to the Envelobox. You need to work out the size of box that you want to make, then cut your cardstock accordingly. Again, you use the scoring tool to mark the creases for the box, then make a few cuts, fold and glue together.
The board is very cleverly designed so that by lining the edge of the cardboard up with a different side for the box base and the box lid, the lid will be very slightly larger so that it can be placed on top for a snug fit. I made these simple boxes very quickly, before the children spirited them off to play with and decorate. Boxes this shape would make great gift boxes for homemade treats.
