Cool Contraption

I got this Punch Board at the swap meet. Guess how much I paid. 25 cents!! 

True, I didn't know exactly what it was. But still. 25 cents!


Turns out it's very nifty. You can make boxes. 

And envelopes. And you can make them in different sizes! Totally worth 25 cents, right? 

This is the video I watched to learn how to use the board. I loooove YouTube.

Wow, so cool! Amazon sells this for $17.25! They have punch boards to make all kinds of things--flowers, alphabets, pillow boxes, gift bags, etc. I wonder if anyone else is selling these boards? :) I love seeing the neat things you find at the Swap Meet! ~e

Gracie, I didn't really know what it was until I watched the video.

Totally yah, Aunty.

E, the seller had another punch board to make banners, but it was gunked up with some kine of glue. It was also 25 cents. Now that I know what it can do, I'm thinking I shoulda got the other one too. Maybe I coulda soaked it or something to get the glue out.

Supah deal yah, Izsmom.

N, when I first watched the video I was confused too. I had to pause it several times. I can imagine it would've been impossible to understand if you don't have the board in front of you.

Kat, it is!

Yessss, Susan.
