Although the one here was used for Valentine's Day, these boxes are great for any kind of party favor!
List of Supplies Used For This Box
Almost Amethyst Cardstock (5 ½” x 8 ½”)
Regal Rose cardstock (for large tag)
Whisper White cardstock (for small tag)
6" Whisper White Taffeta ribbon
4 " Linen Thread
Happy Heart Day stamp set
Basic Black & Lovely Lilac Classic Ink Pads
Regal Rose & Amlmost Amethyst Stampin' Write Markers
Paper Cutter and Bone Folder (or other tools for scoring)
Small AND Large Tag Punches
Score the Almost Amethyst cardstock per the photo above:
2”, 3”, 4”, 6”, 7”, and 8” from the short side. (the 3” and 7” score lines are only about 2” long.)
1 ½” from the long side, on the opposite side from the shorter 3” and 7” scores.
The dotted lines indicate where the cardstock will be folded; the solid lines indicate where the cardstock will be cut. The shaded section will be cut away entirely.
After cutting along the solid lines in the previous photo, randomly stamp the cardstock using Lovely Lilac ink. Then apply Sticky Strip to the two areas shown in the photo above. Fold the box along the score lines and seal using Sticky Strip.
At the top of the box, squeeze the front and back together so the middle folds inward as shown above.
Holding the top of the box closed, use the 1/8” hole punch on a Crop-a-Dile to punch two holes about 1/2” apart as shown above.
Fill the box with treats before continuing.
Once the box is filled with treats, thread the Whisper White Taffeta ribbon through the holes as shown above.
When you are half-way done tying the Whisper White ribbon, hold the linen thread in place as shown above so it gets secured in the knot. Finish tying the ribbon and trim the ends as desired. Leave the Linen thread untied so you can attach the tag when it's ready.
Punch your large tag with the Regal Rose cardstock.
Stamp and punch your small Whisper White tag and color as desired using Stampin’ Write markers. Adhere to the larger tag.
Punch a hole in the tag using the 1/8” hole punch on a Crop-a-Dile, and tie onto the box using the Linen thread. If desired, you can secure the tag to the box at a nice angle with a Glue Dot or other adhesive instead of letting it dangle freely.
