Give me a cute gift box and I am all smiles. This latest bit of fun is a Scallop tag topper box. Pootles in the UK made this first box using up retired product. For my rendition I am showcasing all new products. First I started with the new Fresh Florals Designer Series Paper in Fresh Fig for my base. Next I choose the new Lemon Lime Twist for my accent color. After stamping the sentiment from the Just Add Text stamp set in Fresh Fig ink – I sponged my Whisper White cardstock with Lemon Lime Twist Ink. Adding three Glitter Enamel Dots in graduating size and color density completed the art piece. Finally I used the new ½” Finely woven Ribbon in Lemon Lime Twist to create a bow and box closure.
Scallop Tag Topper Box
For this first box I used Pootles measurements.
- Cut the Paper – 4″ x 11″
- Score on the LONG side at 4, 5, 9, 10″
- Score on the SHORT side at 1″ and 3″
- Burnish the score lines with your bone folder
- Cut away the pink sections. Cut in at the 4″ and 5″ lines to the long score. Then nip a sliver out of both sides of the 1 ” flap you have created.
- Insert the top into the scallop tag topper punch and punch the flap edge and hole.
- Fold in the flaps and glue the side in place with a strong adhesive.
- Punch a small hole in the Scallop tag topper box behind the hole in the flap.
- Fold the ribbon in half. Tie a knot at fold end and thread the ribbon thru the hole in the box with the knot inside the box.
- Finally fill your box with goodies and thread the ribbon thru the hole in the flap and tie with a bow.
Tag Topper Box Redux
When I first started to make the box above I got all excited by the new Just Add Text stamp set. And I stamped and die cut my focal image only to discover it wouldn’t fit. My box was smaller than the image. OOPS! So I redid the sentiment piece with a different stamp from the same set. But that meant I had another art piece for the front of a box but no box. So I created a box based on the first one but slightly different.
For this box, I used a mix of retiring product and new product.
- First cut the Paper or cardstock in this example to 5½” x 11″.
- Next Score on the LONG side at 4, 5, 9, 10″
- Then score on the SHORT side at 1″ and 4½″.
- At this point your paper will look like the previous box except the center section is wider.
- Follow the directions from above.
- EXCEPT- the flap was cut by using a scallop oval die and only die cutting up to the first score. I used a ¼” punch for my holes in both the flap and the box.
