We R Memory Keepers Featured Designer - gift tag box tutorial

  Last month I was contacted by We R Memory Keepers to be a featured designer in December.  They sent me the new "Yuletide" collection to play with and asked if I would create a neighbor gift using the collection.
  My package topper is a Yuletide fabric brad and a Yuletide chipboard tag.

I first used the We R Memory Keepers "Yuletide" papers to create gift tags:

I also used a We R Memory Keepers stocking stamp and gingerbread man stamp
to create gift tags:

Gift Tag Box Tutorial:

Box base:  Cut card stock 8"x8".  Score @ 1" on all four sides.  Cut one 1" slit at each corner and assemble using photo tape (or your favorite strong adhesive.)

Inside dividers:  Cut card stock as follows: 1 @ 3.5"x6" and 2 @ 3.5"x3".  Score all three pieces @ 0.75", 1.75", and 2.75".  Accordian fold all three pieces.  Use adhesive to glue the two innermost rectangles together.  Then use adhesive on both "flaps" and adhere to the box base.  (I also cut 4 @ 2 7/8"x 2 7/8" and glued in each of the four squares to cover up the "flaps".)

Box top:  Cut a sheet of acetate 6 1/8" x 8 1/8".  Score at 1 1/16" and 7 1/8".  Wrap ribbon around to secure and embellish as desired.

Gift tags:  I used my Cricut to cut the tags at 2.75";  the scalloped circle tags were created with Spellbinder's Nestibilities dies.  Cricut cartridges:  The present and tree gift tags are from "Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2" (p.35 and p.48, respectively).  The stocking tag is from "Doodlecharms" p. 50.

Hop on over to the We R Memory Keepers Facebook page and tell them June sent you :)
