Punch boards are an amazing in that they enable you to measure, score, punch (to create fold tabs and rounded corners) and fold using just one craft tool. One of the most popular boards is the envelope punch board (we will be using the We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board in the workshop) which allows you to make envelopes in whatever size you like, quickly, easily and cost effectively.  Clever crafters however can use them to make so much more.  Join in this workshop to find out just how much fun it can be making traditional (envelopes, gift bags and boxes) and more unusual crafts with your board.  The only limit is your imagination.
