Scallop tag topper box to make with old and new product

Scallop Tag Topper Box

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.

For this first box I used Pootles measurements.

  1. Cut the Paper – 4″ x 11″
  2. Score on the LONG side at 4, 5, 9, 10″
  3. Score on the SHORT side at 1″ and 3″
  4. Burnish the score lines with your bone folder
  5. 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.
  6. Insert the top into the scallop tag topper punch and punch the flap edge and hole.
  7. Fold in the flaps and glue the side in place with a strong adhesive.
  8. Punch a small hole in the Scallop tag topper box behind the hole in the flap.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.

Prior to closing up the box it will look like this.
