Wow … it’s Week 10 of our 12 Weeks of Christmas!  

That can only mean one thing … and that is that Christmas is getting very close – what is a scary thought!  

Today I bring you another project in our 12 Weeks of Christmas series created by Jenny Hayward –  I hope you like this project which is a Tag  A Bag Gift Box and matching card.  

Tag A Box and Card

Tag A Box and Card

When you are looking for gift packaging ideas Stampin’ Up! offer an assortment of bags and boxes that with some simple decorating they can make your gift very special.  To hold some yummy treats you can’t go past the Tag A Bag Gift Boxes.  These assemble very quickly without any adhesive at all.  These boxes can be found on page 201 of the Stampin Up! Catalogue and come in a pack of 8 for just $11.95.  Great value!!

Here is the box for you.

For this I have punched a strip of Real Red Cardstock with the Confetti Stars Border Punch, wrapped around a strip of the Nordic Noel DSP and tied around some Real Red Satin Ribbon.  I have the tutorial below. The cute tag is simply a number of stars cut with the Stars Framelits from Gold Foil, Garden Green and Real Red.  In the centre of the smallest star I added a single Gold sequin and added a small pearl coloured with the “red” colour in the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities pack.  I added a length of the Gold Sequin Trim behind the star. The greeting is from Petite Pairs and cut using the Bitty Banners Framelits.

I made a matching card to go with the box.

I cut a large star from the Whisper White card and adhered some of the same Nordic Noel DSP behind it.  Then layered stars in Gold Foil, Garden Green and Real Red to match the box although these were slightly smaller.  The smaller red star is punched from the Itty Bitty Accents punch set.  I added a single Gold sequin and coloured Adhesive Pearl to this too. The greeting is from the Bright and Beautiful set stamped in Real Red.  I wrapped around some Real Red Satin Ribbon and added a bow separately.  So much easier to add the bow separately.  It sits so much better.  I always have a tussle with the card and the ribbon. 😉  I finished it off with some single Gold sequins around the card.


Cut Real Red cardstock to measure 9.5cm x 28cm (3 ¾” x 11”). Punch along both edges with the Confetti Stars Border Punch.

Cut your Designer Series Paper 3.5cm x 28cm (1 3/8” x 11”).  Adhere along the centre of the punched strip. Run adhesive along the back of your card strip with adhesive of your choice.  I used Fast Fuse. 

Place the middle of your card strip at the centre of the top surface on the Acetate sleeve for the box and adhere down.  Wrap the cardstock around the sleeve adhering each side as you go.  TIP: When you wrap the cardstock around each side run the Bone Folder along the edge to give a crisper fold. Check it out  in the photo how I have done it.

Adhere the ends together at the base of the box.

Wrap your Red Satin Ribbon around the box and tie in a bow.  Create a tag of your choice to finish.

I am sure you could think of a few friends or workmates that you could whip up a few of these for?? Fill them with some chocolates, cookies even a small gift.  Decorate them as you like.
