Gift Box Punch Board from We R Memory Keepers


After last years’ success with the Envelope Punch Board, it only made sense that We R Memory Keepers would up their game and come up with new versions of the punch board. At CHA last summer they debuted FOUR new ones- and today, we’ll take a closer look at two of them: Gift Box Punch Board.


Here’s how they are described on the website:

With the release of the award-winning Envelope Punch Board, We R Memory Keepers have helped crafters make the outside of a package count just as much as the inside. The release of a series of Punch Boards continues to do just that. Punch Boards make it easy, not to mention cost effective, to create party bags and boxes simply by punching and scoring using any paper. Create bags and boxes in a variety of sizes and use them for special occasions such as baby and wedding showers, birthdays, holidays, party favors, and more. Use the Punch Boards to create Gift Bags, Gift Boxes, Pillow Boxes, and Candy Boxes. The Punch Boards (MSRP $19.99) begin shipping this October. 


 I present to you- the Gift Box Punch board.
We R Memory Keepers Punch Boards: Candy Box and Gift Box
This punch board features the on-board dual notching punch and corner-rounder slot punch. Use one side to make the notches for the gift box, the other to create a rounded edge with a slot to make a self-closure. All of the directions are printed right on the front for easy reference, and you’ll never lose them there!
They are listed both in inches (right) and CM’s (left).
There is also built-in storage for the included (and color-coordinated!) folding tool.

This one offers a swing-out arm so that you can get a nice clean score all the way to the edge of the paper. It’s a nice touch.

To make a gift box, you follow a formula. Select a size, cut a square of paper, line up on the designated line, and then score horizontally, vertically, and diagonally. Make a punch, then rotate 90 degrees and repeat.
Don’t worry- I made a video to show you.

Let’s take another look at those finished samples!

There are plenty of options on how to “finish” the boxes. Tape, glue, or even brads.

I love this interlocking flap thingy that makes a self-closure!

Here’s a close-up. I think you would be able to use this for other things, too.

As stated above, these should be hitting your stores any moment if they haven’t already. I already have plans to use both of them for different holiday crafts (just wait and see!!!)

These will retail for $19.99, but I’m positive there will be sales and specials to be found. Do you think the cost is justified? (Personally, if it encourages me to use up more of my paper hoard stash, then it’s a worthy investment to me!

Tomorrow we’ll look at the Candy Box Punch- so stay tuned!

I’d love your comments & questions!

Disclosure: samples provided for review purposes, but my opinion is honest and based on my first-hand experience with the product.

    This is already on my Christmas list! Love the envelope board.

  2. Claudia Says:

    After reading your past review of the envelope maker, I ran out and got one — and I love it. If I could think of more uses for handmade boxes, I’d run out and get this one, too.

  3. KimMJ Says:

    Thanx ever so much for the info! Just got the envelope board and have been dying to see how the rest work out. I also have a big paper stash that needs to be used and thought that the bag board and the boxes would be a great way to use up some of my paper. :)

    have been dying

  4. Kathy Says:

    Do you know what the release date of these items are. I saw them on a website saying October and now it’s saying December.

  5. Jenny Says:

    Kathy- I’d contact the company for more information. Have you tried asking on the WRMK Facebook page?

  6. Ginny Says:

    Is there much difference between the WRMK envelope board and the Stampin’ Up envelope board? I saw a video on You Tube where they were using the Stampin’ Up envelope board to make boxes. Then you would not need to purchase a separate board to make boxes. What’s your opinion?

  7. Jenny Says:

    Ginny- The SU board and the WRMK board are IDENTICAL!!! They are only different colors and branded specifically for SU. This is straight from my rep at the company.
