Craft Fair Idea #5 Nail File Holders - 2019 Craft Fair Season - WRMK Envelope Punch Board Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my 2019 Craft Fair Series.  This week I have been making these really cute nail file favours.  They make wonderful teacher gifts, work colleague treats or stocking stuffers.  What?  Too soon for Christmas I hear you say?  It's never too soon to start stocking up and getting ready for the holiday season.  I got this idea from Septeria18 on Youtube and I will link her video at the end.

Nail File Holders


Designer series paper (12x12)
Envelope punch Board (optional)
Bone folder (optional)
Paper trimmer / scissors
Nail files
Scoreboard (optional)
Hole punch (optional)
Plastic sleeves (optional)

First cut your paper at 1 ½ inches.

Then score at 4 ¼ inches and fold along the scoreline.

Burnish with your bonefolder.  If you don't have a scoreboard or bonefolder just measure and fold.

With your paper still folded and using your We Are Memory Keepers envelope punch board, line it up at the 4 ½ inch mark.  Punch, flip over and punch again.

It should look like this...  If you don't have a punch board you can totally leave your edges straight.

Then open your paper and line up your fold line in the centre of the punch area.  Punch and flip over and punch again.

Next take your glue and adhere along the straight edges, leaving the indented parts unglued.

Like this...

You can now shape the top of your holder by lining it up as in the photo, punch flip over and punch.

This gives it a nice curved edge.  You can also punch a hole here for adding ribbon later.  Again this step is optional, you can decorate your holders however you please.

You can now slide in your nail file.  I got mine from Poundland but you can get them from Amazon, they do some really pretty ones.

Embellish however you like...

I used ribbon, twine, sticky gems, paper punches and stamps to decorate mine.

I added plastic sleeves for a more professional look and to keep them clean ready for the craft fair.

I really had fun making these and I hope you will have a go yourself, they are so easy to produce and make wonderful gifts.
