I don’t think I shared this project from my class last month – it is a box of tags – this project was demonstrated for us at the Chattanooga Half-Day Regional. I used a different color combination and added the flowers to the butterflies. It is a cute little project.
First we made a box using Old Olive card stock with the insert inside to create the different sections. The box is a 6″ x 6″ piece of card stock – scored at 1″ on all four sides. Snip two opposite sides to create tabs and glue to make the box.
The insert is made from two pieces of 4″ x 6″ of Old Olive card stock. Score both pieces at 2″, 3″ and 4″. Then on one you cut down the center from the outside edge to each score line and on the other you cut down the center between the two outside score lines and nudge over and cut again to create a narrow slit. Fold both pieces so they have a mountain in the middle.
Fold up the first piece and slide it into the slit in the second piece then fold down the flaps to create the sectioned insert. Slide this inside your box.
We made butterfly tags – there are four tags of each color – Old Olive, Regal Rose and Rose Red with butterflies that were made by stamping the details from Flight of the Butterfly stamp set and punching with the Butterfly Punch.
The words come from the Fundamental Phrases stamp set – I used “For You”, “Hello”, “Thanks”, and “Friend”.
The tags were put in the box and then we added ribbon. Slide the whole thing inside a large cello bag. Tie with a piece of ribbon. Then add a tag which was made from a metal edge tag as the base.
This would make a cute hostess gift or just for a friend. It reminds me of spring! If you would like to come to my next class – it is this week on Friday – please let me know today.
Have a nice spring day!
