My First Tutorial- Gift Tag Box

This is my first tutorial ever! I love making boxes with the Simply Scored Scoring tool. This box measures 6 7/8" long, 1 1/4" tall and 3 1/8" wide. It is the perfect size for a set of 3X3 cards, homemade candy or any number of other gift ideas.

This little box with matching card sets is going to be my "go to" hostess gift for any holiday party I'm attending this season. (I hope my sister-in-law doesn't read this post until after Thanksgiving, because she's getting one for hosting the family get-together.)

Let's get started.

Step 1:
First you'll need a 11" X 11 3/4" piece of card stock for the box and a
9 1/4" X 3" piece of card stock for the inside divider.

Step 2:
Score the 11" side at
3/4", 2", 5 1/4", 6 1/2" and 9 3/4".

Step 3:
Score the 11 3/4" side at
1 1/4", 2 5/8", 9 1/4" and 10 3/4".

Step 4:
Score the 91/4" X 3" on the 9 1/4' side at
3 1/2", 4 3/4" and 6".

Step 5:
Cut away the paper marked with a 'X'

Step 6:
Pre-fold and reinforce score lines with your bone folder.
Cut the shaded triangles off the tabs.

  Step 7:
 Using Tombo Glue, glue tabs to the inside flap of the base of the box.

Step 8:
Using Tombo Glue, glue the outside flap over the tabs that are inside the box. This will hide the tabs and add strength to the box.

Step 9:
Glue 3/4" flap to the inside of  the box. This is to add strength to the box.

Step 10:
With the 9 1/4" X 3" piece of card stock, create a mountain fold.

Glue into the box to use as a divider. 

 Step 11:
Decorate the outside of the box with Be of Good Cheer DSP and Scentsational Seasons Stamp Set.

It also looks great decorated with Candlelight Christmas DSP and Ornament Keepsakes.
