Hello Everyone!! Stephanie Dagan with you today to present a very small project: a Little Box for the storage of Little Tags! At first, I wanted to make an advent calendar, but the box for this particular project wasn't deep enough to contain all 25 tags. So, instead, I opted to go this route, which is still just as cute, and holiday friendly! I'm going to hold off on the advent calendar idea 'til next year :)
To begin the project, I chose some patterned papers from the Peppermint Collection and with my big shot, I cut ten + tags. I then embellished each tag to my liking before moving on to the box I chose to go with for storing them. So now, lets make the box!
I love making boxes from papers, it's fast and super easy! And once you understand the technique, you can use it to create different sized boxes. Here, I've given you the dimensions to make a box that measures 2.95" x 3.93" and 1.96" high. Make use of the sizes mentioned and photos, to cut and make your own boxes!
After completing my box, I cut a strip of transparency to create a sleeve in which to tuck the box into so that my tags wouldn't fall out. Of the trimmed transparency, I scored the folds and glued the ends together. After allowing it to dry some, I positioned the box inside the transparency cover, along with the tags! I opted not to embellish the top of the box because it was important that the tags be seen in their entirity.
And here are a few of the finished tags! Note how neatly and perfectly they fit inside the box and how adorable they look together...
That's all for today! Hope you'll find this tutorial easy to follow and also, inspiring! Thanks so much for stopping by - wish you a wonderful Christmas!
