Tag! You’re it!
I love the fun of assembling boxes, and when they’re easy to put together, even better! With the Gift Tag Box Bigz die, the possibilities are endless! Entertaining is one of my favorite pastimes and I immediately thought of how I’d incorporate this into my next soirée so wrote this blog Tag! You're It!
As part of the table setting during the holidays or beautifully embossed as a party favor at a shower or birthday party? Either way, it adds the perfect touch. Hand write a name banner to the front and fill box with some sweets, it could be a place card and favor all in 1! Better yet, make multiple tags to fill up the box! Tags are always great to have on hand and they’ll absolutely love them!

Love the box, but want to use it all year long? No problem! Cut all but the tree embellishment. Before assembling, emboss the tags and add a little lustre wax. Once assembled, embellish with flower stamens. Voilà!
