Instructions

Front…….

Before you start, it is useful to make templates for your front tags.  You will need 2 different templates.  So make these:
– Cut a piece of paper 11cm x 6cm.  Fold in half lengthways and with the paper folded, use a scissors to cut off the top corner (3.5cm from the top). When you open the paper, it should leave you with a tag shape. You can use this as your larger template.
– Cut a piece of paper 10.5cm x 5.5cm.  Fold in half lengthways and with the paper folded, use a scissors to cut off the top corner (3.5cm from the top). When you open the paper, it should leave you with a tag shape that is ever so slightly smaller than the one you just made.  You can use this as your smaller template.

  1. Firstly print your front tag wording on to A4 Kraft Paper and cut down to size.  The finished size should be 10.5cm x 5.5cm with the wording set to the right.  Hold your smaller template on top and use a scissors to cut your tag shape.
    Once you have a tag shape, use your corner chomper on the 2 corners of your tag to create rounded edges.
  2. Cut a piece of Kraft Kard 11cm x 6cm.  Hold your large template on top and use a scissors to cut your tag shape.  Once you have a tag shape, use your corner chomper on the 2 corners of your tag to create rounded edges.
  3. Use your tape runner to stick the printed panel on to the larger tag.
  4. Peel off some mini mounting pads and stick them around the edges of your tag (and a few across the middle).  Make sure you distribute them evenly (appx. 1.5cm apart).   Stick the tag to the front of the card so that it runs diagonally as shown in the picture.
  5. Tie a bow with the Red Velvet Polka Dot Ribbon.  You will need to tease the bow into shape.  Once you are happy with the size and shape of the bow, use your glue gun to stick it in to place at the top left of your card, covering the top of the tag.

You Will Need:

 

  1 x Kraft Favour Box

Red Velvet Polka Dot Ribbon - 18 Metre Roll

  appx. 60cm of Red Velvet Polka Dot Ribbon

You Will Also Need a sharp scissors:

Instructions:

  1. Firstly assemble and fill your Kraft Card Favour Box.
  2. Take your ribbon and place it pattern side down on a flat surface.   Place your favour box upside down on the centre of your ribbon.  Wrap your ribbon around to the bottom of the box, turning the box around as you go.
  3. At the bottom of the box, wrap the 2 ends of ribbon around each other so that they turn at a 90degree angle ready for you to wrap back around to the top of the box.
  4. Once your ribbon reaches the top of the box, push each end underneath the flat ribbon.  You can then tie a knot in the ribbon and cut off any excess with a scissors.  It is a nice touch if you take some of the threads at the end and pull them so that they fray in a similar way to the sides of the ribbon.
