1-2-3 Punch

So I have just purchased this nifty little 1-2-3 Punch Board.  This particular board can be used to make envelopes, bows and gift boxes of all different sizes.

What is included:

  • The board which has the scouring lines, measurement, punch and scouring tool.
  • The board also comes with a size guide printed on it which is in inches.  However, another sticker is included with the measurements in cm’s.  (Top points here from me, it annoys me when I have to convert every measurement myself).
  • Instruction manual.  The instructions are super simple to follow.  It has pictures as well as a small explanation.

There is a whole range of these boards that are made by We R Memory Keepers, who are absolutely awesome.  I can’t help but want everything!

So far I have made a couple of boxes and envelopes and one bow.  It is super easy! The instructions are basic and the punch board is simple to use with clear markings for everything.

They have a neat little website called Envelope Generator where you can enter the width and height of the card and it then generates the size of paper you need to make an envelope! How easy is that?! There is also an app (isn’t there always an app these days?) that can be downloaded on both Android and Apple.

And a YouTube channel by WeRMemoryKeepers which has heaps of awesome tutorials using their different punches.

AND WeRMemoryKeepers are on WordPress, so they must be amazing!

Here’s a few other punch boards from WeRMemoryKeepers that are definitely going to go on my list of things to get next:

I think this is probably my next pick to purchase.  How handy would it be to just punch letters out for banners, scrapbooking, etc.? It would be great!
