Stampin' Up Home for Christmas - Christmas Box for Tags II

Well, it was 64 degrees out this morning and it is now 54.  Our Michigan cold weather is returning.  It is supposed to be only 49 tomorrow.  Oh boy!!!

I've shown four Stampin' Up Home for Christmas Tags now in 2 days on my blog.  I was thinking that these tags need a home so I designed a tag box on the Stampin' Up Envelope Punch Board and also embellished a box from the Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin Kit called Layers of Gratitude.  Let's take a look:

Here's the first box that I designed on SU's Envelope Punch Board.  I made this box so it has an open top.  Here are the instructions to make it:

6 3/4"x6 3/4" Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper
Line left edge of DSP up at 2 1/2" mark - Punch/Score
Slide paper left to the 3 1/8" mark - Punch/Score
*Turn paper 90 degrees and line up needle with first score line - Punch/Score
Line up next score line with needle - Punch/Score
Repeat from * one time
Turn paper another 90 degrees and punch on both score lines - do not score either of these lines for the open top

If you want a closed top like the picture below, then score those last two lines.  

Next, you will want to cut out the little squares in between the two punched notches on all four corners. 

I also used the corner rounder punch on the top of the Envelope Punch Board to round the corners on all four flaps (not shown in instruction picture). 

Below is a picture of the closed top tag box:

It's hard to see the score lines; but, below is what your paper should look like:

And, below is the box that was in our Stampin' Up Paper Pumpkin Kit called Layers of Gratitude. 

All I did was assemble the box, cut and adhere the Home for Christmas DSP and add a 3/4" Belly Band.  I just tucked the top flap of the box under the scalloped circle on the belly band to close the box up. And, it fits the tags perfectly.  Oh, my tags are 2 1/2"x4".

A-DOR-A-BLE!!!  I'm not sure that I can part with this one!!!  =)

I'll leave you with some more pictures of the tags that I posted on my blog the last couple of days:
