Tag Box Tutorial

I have had a number of requests to make a tutorial on making a Tag Box, one I featured on my blog Dec. 6.

I made that using the gift card enclosure, which has now retired.

 So, I spent the morning making one using the envelope punch board.  It looks almost the same, but is a bit wider.

Supplies Needed:
  • Crumb Cake cardstock 5 by 5"
  • Envelope punch board
  • Tape and tear tape
  • Paper snips
  • Glue dots
  • Tombo glue
  1. Make the first score line and punch at the 2 3/8" mark, and again at the 2 7/8" mark. On the other 2 sides, punch and score at the other punch and score lines.  Do not score the part that will be the top of the tag holder.  Round all corners (I forgot to do that in my pictures)

3.  Create the bottom flaps by cutting along the score line on both ends.

Sorry the picture is so dark, but you can see the flaps that are created.  This is the bottom of the tag box.

4.  Snip out the tabs at the top of the box.

5.  Adhere the bottom flaps to the inside.  Place some tear and tape on both tabs and adhere tabs.

This starts to form the bottom of the box.  Do the same on the other side.

You can see the bottom of the box forming.

6.  Now form the rest of the box, by taking the sides so that they overlap slightly in the middle.  Put a glue dot between them to hold them in place.  Then put some tombo glue on the edges of the bottom flap.

7. Bring the bottom flap up and adhere it over the side flaps.  Make sure the box is straight and square.

8.  Your basic box is completed.  Make a belly band to go around it.  Do this by cutting a 3/4 by 7" of crumb cake and attach a 1/2" piece of DSP to it.  Place it around the box and adhere at the back.  Do not glue it to the box.

9.  Decorate the front as desired.

Each should hold about 6 tags.
Note that I have cut images from the "Home for Christmas DSP" to decorate the front.
