Christmas Tags display box

Hi there!

I’ve been creating a lot these last few days and that makes me very happy ūüôā

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? ūüôā
