For my project today I have used the the new Die-namics Traditional Tag Stax and also the new PI Lady Liberty to create this tag treat box.

To create this tag box I first die cut two tags from designer paper and two from navy card and and adhered the designer paper tag over the navy tag.

For the box section of this tag box I cut my navy card at 11 inches x 5 inches. I scored across the 11 inch side at 3 inches; 5 inches; 8 inches and 10 inches. Along the 5 inch side I scored at 3 inches. Cut along all the solid lines at the bottom and cut out the piece that is blacked out in the template below. Assemble as you would a box and attach to the tags.

I added the sentiment to one of the smaller tags from the Die-namics Traditional Tags Stax.

For the tie at the top to keep the box closed I used Denim Twine and Maraschino Red Twine to keep the red, white and blue colors.

Here is a view of the back of my tag box (or it could be the front without the image as they are exactly the same).

Here you can see better the Traditional Tag shape of the box as you don’t have bows getting in the way of the photo. You can also see how I reinforced the whole for the tag using the small circle from the Die-namics Circle STAX Set 2 .
