DIY: Treat Boxes, Bags, & Tags!


Hi readers! Happy Wednesday to you! I hope you’re having a fabulous week, and if you’re a “mid-westerner” or perhaps even along the east coast, I hope you’re staying warm. :) I’m pleased to welcome back Jocelyn Olson to our blog to share us some fun & cute boxes, tags, & bags featuring Paper Smooches products that we can make to make holiday gift giving even more fun!

With the holidays right around the corner, I’ve been thinking about fun ways to wrap presents. Armed with some Paper Smooches stamps and dies, I went to work creating some coordinating packaging.

Not long ago, I bought the We R Memory Keepers Gift Box Punch Board. It’s a great tool to quickly make a variety of boxes (and quick is good when it comes to wrapping!). There’s no die-cutting or gluing, just scoring and folding. I used the Webster’s Pages All That Glitters paper pack and vellum to make the boxes and tags.

Once I had the boxes made, I made three corresponding tags. I couldn’t stop, so I made an extra tag with the little gingerbread man. All of the stamps and dies are from Paper Smooches.

The Paper Smooches Numbers dies are perfect for a December Daily, Advent calendar, or for birthdays. I didn’t have any matching cardstock, so I die-cut the numbers out of white cardstock and blended Distress Ink on the numbers. I die-cut the Poinsettia die out of felt to add some texture.

I created my own tag by using the Scalloped Circle die and simply punching a hole through the vellum. I added some glitter to the edges of the Large Snowflake die.

The new Gift Tags dies are perfect for different box sizes. I used the largest die for this tag, and added the adorable Cool Dudes snowman.


Thanks for reading today, and thanks to Jocelyn for this super sweet inspiration!

  1. I’m so in love with gift tags, I was really excited to see your blog post. You made some really great tags! For some reason I especially like the “25” tag, it’s awesome!

  2. Great selection of boxes and bags.
    I googled the WRMK BOX punch board and got this stock #: 71334-0. When I click on your link(Gift Box Punch Board) at the beginning of this post, it brings up the WRMK BAG punch board, stock # 71333-3. Did you use both? I was a little confused when I got the Bag Board instead of the Box Board. Thanks,

  3. It just occurred to me that just because I’m not a tag person doesn’t mean I can’t make them into bookmarks instead!

  4. These gift boxes and tags are adorable and so cute! The Gift Box Punch Board sounds like a quick and easy way to whip up some adorable packaging.

  5. Wake Forest’s four out of conference games in 2015 are vs Elon, at Army, Indiana, and at Notre Dame.
    You’ll find that contract renewals for your existing players are also handled by agents now.
    Treat your fellow players the way you’d want to be treated.
