Sometimes it is just of fun to have a special box to put a gift in! I made a little box, that is so quick and easy to put together, and topped it with ribbon and a cute tag!
To make my box I cut a piece of patterned paper into a 9" x 9" square. I scored in each direction at 3" and 6" and cut along four of the score lines, stopping at the horizontal score lines as shown. I applied adhesive to the corners, and folded the flaps up at the score line to create a small box.
To make the lid I cut another piece of patterned into a 5 7/8" x 5 7/8 inch square. Then scored in each direction at 1 3/8" by 4 1/2". Cut four of the score line like you did for the box.
This is what the box looks like when it is put together. I added a border to the top of my box using the Small Scalloped Border Die.
I created by tag using the Tag You're Die-namic and the Christmas Ornaments Die-namic and Stamp Set.
I cut the tag out twice in two different patterned papers and cut the top off the berry patterned paper. I die cut one of the ornaments from the set and used a stamp for the set for the star in the center. It is mounted on a doily cut with the smaller die in the Dainty Doily Duo. Then I used the dies to add a little tag and holly leaves. I used Bakers Twine in Maraschino Red to hang my ornament and to tie it onto my little package.
I cut out my tag again in white cardstock and adhered it to the back of tag, and stamped "To:" and "From:" and a snowflake from the stamp set.
