A Little Treat or Tag Box

It's been a while, since my last posting.
But today I've got a little box tutorial for you :)

Supplies you need:

  • sheet of card stock and a sheet of matching designer paper
  • adhesive and liquid glue
  • scissors, pencil and ruler
  • bone-folder and eyelet puncher 
  • 1 brad
  • embellishment (tag, ribbons, ..

First you start with scoring your sheet of card stock at 8, 13.5, 18.5, 24.5 and 2 cm.

Now you flip your piece about 180° and you score at 8 and 13.5 cm.
You will see a row in the middle with 5.5 cm. Score on the left and right handside 1cm at the 1st and 3rd section - these are going to be our pieces we need to fix the box.

Next step is to cut out the box shape and to crease the score lines with the bone-folder.

Turn your piece and start decorating it with little pieces you cut out from the designer paper. Mention that these stripes must be a little smaller. I did it 1cm smaller. Just fix them with some double sided adhesive.

We're coming to an and :) with the liquid glue you now fix the pieces together and the box is finished.

As a closing you punch a little hole into the front side of the box, put in a brad and than slide in the box roof.

If you like you can decorate it with some embellishments and that's it!
Isn't it simple?!

I love my little boxes to keep all my 3" tags in it! Its so great :)

Have a nice day!
