I’ve been creating a lot these last few days and that makes me very happy 🙂
I showed you before the tags I’ve been making for an order and if you’re a crafter too, you know there is no way we can give anything without a pretty package… so I decided to make a box to display the 20 tags.
I designed the box with just a score board and a paper trimmer. It had to hold 22 tags (I offered two more as a little thank you for my lovely customer), all lined up in three columns.
Here are the measurements if you’re interested:
(please note that I’m not used to imperial system so I wrote the measurements for information purpose only)
- One tag is 6 cm x 9,5 cm (2 1/4″ x 3 3/4″), the finished box had to be 6,5 cm x 18,5 cm x 2 cm ( 2 1/4″ x 7 7/8″ x 3/4″).
- The sides are doubled in order to make the whole box sturdier, that means you have to add another strip of 2,5 cm on every side of your template.
- Cut a 16,5 cm x 23,5 cm piece of cardstock to create the box. Score at 2,5 cm, 5 cm, 18,5 cm, 21 cm (length) and then score at 2,5 cm, 5 cm, 11,5 cm, 14 cm (width).
- The inside piece has two folds to separate the tags. It measures 6,4 cm x 23,4 cm (2 1/4″ x 11 7/8″) and I just scored it at 6,5 cm, 9cm, 11,5 cm to make the first fold (2 5/8″, 3 9/16, 4 1/2″), and then 18 cm, 20,5 cm and 23 cm for the second one (7 1/16″, 8 1/16″, 9 1/16″).
Of course, it had to be closed to protect the tags… I cut and scored a piece of acetate to make the lid. It has to be slightly smaller than the box, otherwise it won’t fit (ask me how I know this…).
- The piece of acetate is 9 cm x 19,9 cm (3 1/2″ x 8 1/4″). Score at 2,5 cm and 18,4 cm (1″ and 7 1/4″) ( length) and then score at 2,5 cm and 6,4 cm (1″ and 2 1/2″) (width).
I then added a bow and a little tag that reads “Merry”. I made a “poinsettia” to decorate the tag, with two Petite petals punched flowers and gold rhinestones.
And here is the box ready to go: do you like it? 🙂
