More box lid ideas using the Martha Stewart Score Board

Here are some more ideas, using Martha's punches, to dress up box lids or bottoms depending on the punch used. I folded the box in a way that I only had 2 layers of paper to punch through, not 3 when punching the sides of the "lid".

I started with these 3 punches.

Punched through 2 layers of cardstock.

Again through 2 layers of cardstock, centering punch.

Punched using the stars and then a 1.5" scallop circle.
Punched a coordinating color with the 1.5" scallop circle to layer underneath.

Same punch as above without the layer.

Don't throw away the images from the side punches.
Use them to decorate the top, cards, tags or scrapbook pages.


Here is an example of some punches that didn't work as well. They are the emboss and cut punches. They work well with 1 layer of cardstock but 2 or more are just too thick for this style punch to work well.

The above punched ok but the shape is not detailed enough for this application.

This emboss punch didn't go through both layers of cardstock.
I tried to punch it twice but since you cannot see through the bottom to line it up, it just made a big mess!
