Tag Box Favors

Hi everyone!  I'm always on the hunt for ideas for party favors for school and our church women's events.  Today I'm going to share one that I found that is super easy to make and lots of fun and can be used for many different occassions!

I found a template online for a tag box and then had my husband convert it into an svg file for me to cut on my cricut. This saved me so much time! If you would like the template that you can cut by hand, you can find it here. If you would like the .svg file for this template to cut on your electronic machine, you can download it here.

Let's start with Christmas...

This tag box could be decorated so many ways!  I kept this one fairly simple.  Don't you just love the twine from The Twinery through the buttons?  The colors together are perfect for a traditional Christmas color scheme! I used Maraschino & Peapod colors of twine.  How about a closer look?

I wanted to make this box in a couple of other holiday themes, so next on my list was one for a birthday.

Aren't those colors so much fun?  And the twine matches perfectly!  I used the Lemondrop & Pink Sorbet twine.

I used copics to color the cupcake and then used a blender pen to make the cupcake polka dotted.  Who can resist a polka dotted cupcake?  So cute!  Inside the bag I placed a bunch of candy, great for a birthday party!

And last, but not least, I made another tag box with a Valentine's Day theme.

For this one, I made an accordion flower for the center of the box with a decorated middle.  I sewed the twine through the white circle piece using a very sharp needle with a large head and then through the button holes and tied the twine to make a bow.  I also wrapped the twine around the box a couple of times.

This twine is the Maraschino twine and it is a perfect red!  I found a bag of old fashioned mints that were already wrapped and waiting for a home.  They slipped inside this box perfectly!

I hope you enjoyed these boxes!  They are a lot of fun to make!  Thank you for stopping by!
