Making Christmas BonBons with the envelope punch board

What can you make with the Stampin' Up! Envelope punch board?
66 envelope sizes for a start, but what else?
Christmas crackers!
Here's the tutorial:
You will Need - one piece of patterned paper 4 1/2" x 6 1/2" 
Punch board, scorer, ribbon and adhesive.
Step 1. Score your paper lengthwise at 1, 2, 3, 4 inches.
Then turn your paper
Step 2. And score at 1", 1 1/2", 2" and 4 1/2", 5", 5 1/2".

Step 3. Use the bone folder to Create a mountain valley fold on each end, using the score marks so it looks like this.
Step 4. Fold along the one inch lengths and line up one fold on the punch board at the 2" mark.
Punch the oval button on your board to cut out a notch.
Slide your paper across to the 5" mark and punch again.
Step 5. Continue folding and punching at 2 and 5 inches on each folded  score line.
Punch out two notches along the the widest edge as well.
Step 6. Fold the Bon Bon in half and glue down the edge with sticky strip.
Step 7. Open up the cylinder and push the ends inward to create the shape.
Step 8. Tie the ends with ribbon and slide in a gift, trinket, chocolate, lipstick or lip balm perhaps.
These are the cutest and easiest Bon bons I could find to make. You can make them bigger but these were just the right size to make with Stampin' up!'s paper stacks in the Seasonal catalogue.
 The envelope punch board is only $31.95 which for all the things you can do with it is quite a bargain.
Give me a call if you'd like me to put one on my next order for you. . . Nerida 0468877125
