Tarheel Stamper - Royal Blog Tour Christmas Tag Box

Christmas Rose Tag Box

Hope you thoroughly enjoyed your stay at the Royal Blog Tour castles during the blog tour.  A lot of work goes into the tour behind the scene and I appreciate all the time and effort put into it.

Now on to some instructions for the Christmas Tag Box and some more tags. 

I found the tutorial for the Christmas Tag Box from the super talented Becky Jensen of Stamp That.  You can see her tutorial here

I changed my box lid a little.  I made one lid per her instructions from card stock.  Then I laid it down flat on top of my cutting mat without cutting or taping the lid.  It was scored so I could see where the sides of the box lid were.  I cut out a square using a ruler and straight edge.  I measured in 3/4" from the score lines to cut the center out.  That was a 5 1/2" square cut out of the center of the box lid.  I cut a 6 inch square from Thick Window Sheet to glue under the box lid.  I stamped the flower image from Delightful Decorations on the window sheet in Stazon Opaque White.  You have to be careful not to slide the stamp around once you stamp.  I stamped on the box lid in the same ink.  Assemble the box lid as the tutorial instructs.  I cut a length of ribbon and adhered it underneath the bottom of the lid.  That way you don't have to untie it to open the box.  

One other thing I did differently was to glue the inserts to the side of the box with Tombow Multi-purpose glue.  I just held the side of the box to the insert for a few seconds until it stayed together.  

To make the raised platform under the folded punched ornament tags, I cut a 4 1/2" square and scored at 1/2" in from each edge.  Follow instructions on tutorial.  

Come back tomorrow for some more tag photos and following that more photos and directions for some of the ornaments. 

Have a great day,
Tammy aka Tarheel Stamper
