TAG BOX TUTORIAL!

Yesterday I showed you the projects I made for the Stamp-A-Latte Blog Hop using the Snowflake Thinlets.  If you missed it just head back to the post before.  I didn’t have time in that post to show you how I made the Tag Box so I thought I would show you that today.

Here is the cute box to show you again.

Here is inside the box showing the tags I made too.  The green strip of DSP from the Nordic Noel DSP is not a Belly Band.  I just added it to the top of the acetate and adhered the ends inside the lid.

You can decorate this however you want to.  The finished size is 9cm x 9cm x 2cm (3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ x 3/4″). But how did I make it?? Here is the Tutorial for you.

TAG BOX

For the Base

NB: If you intend to stamp your box then do so before you assemble the box!!

Cut your card to 13cm x 13cm ( 5 1/8″ x 5 1/8″).  Score on each side at 2cm (3/4″).  

Fold on all score lines and cut up the 2 tabs on one side and again on the opposite side.

Place adhesive on the small tabs and assemble the box.

For the Lid

Cut your Acetate to 13.4cm x 13.4cm (5 1/4″ x 5 1/4″) and score at 2.2cm (7/8″). 

Fold on all the score lines.  You may want to use the Bone Folder to burnish (press down) the score lines more.

Cut up on the 2 tabs on one side and then again on the opposite side.  Place adhesive on the tabs and adhere together.  I used Fast Fuse or you could use Sticky Strip.

This lid is a little snug.  You just need to jiggle it in but it works fine.

Decorate your box as you like.  I lined the base of this box.  The paper size I used was 8.5cm x 8.5cm (3 3/8″ x 3 3/8″).

These fit the tags in just nicely.  The tags are punched with the 1 3/4″ circle punch.

Don’t just think of them for tags though.  Why not add some chocolates???
