Splitcoast Guest Author

I am honored that Splitcoaststampers asked me to create a tutorial for their site.  After so many years of getting inspiration from the Splitcoast site, I am thrilled to give back!  Today is the day…I am the guest author of today’s Wednesday Tutorial at splitcoaststampers.com.

My project is a Mini File Box for handmade tags, made with the envelope punch board.  I created this as a “Christmas in July” project for my clubs this summer (here), and I remade the project for this tutorial using current products.

I used the Candy Cane Lane suite of products, and a favorite stamp set,  “Cookie Cutter Christmas”.  You can use products in any colors and themes.


The box is made from a 6″ square of Early Espresso cardstock, and the directions to create this box are in the video below.


Here’s a look at the tags – the bases measured 2″ x 4 1/4″ before punching with the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.


I also made a Real Red version, with more coordinating tags.


I made up a bunch of these to give out at OnStage this past weekend.  They were super-cute packaged up in a cello bag with a bit of coordinating ribbon.


 You can find illustrated step-by-step directions and a video for the Mini File Box at splitcoaststampers.com.  I am also linking the video here.  Thank you for checking out my project!
