6″ x 6″ Project #2

Hi everyone!

I think it’s nice to sometimes be able to create items using basic supplies that we already have on hand ~ like patterned paper. Some people like the full 12″ x 12″ sheets of patterned paper while others prefer the 6″ x 6″ paper pads. Or maybe both! So I decided to do a few gift packaging projects using pieces of paper that measure 6″ x 6″. So, whichever size of paper you tend to use, you will be able to make these. Add some adhesive/embellishments and you’re ready to create! These projects can all be easily adapted to suit any season or occasion just by changing the papers and embellishments. The possibilities are endless! As always, please feel free to share your creations 🙂

Today’s 6″ x 6″ project is a Tab Box {finished size: 2 3/8″ square x 1 3/8″} and uses an envelope punch board. This little box would make a nice table favor for special dinners. Add some wrapped chocolates, some pretty packaged tea bags or a small candle.


You will need:  6″ × 6″ piece of patterned paper or card stock, envelope punch board, bone folder, scissors, strong adhesive, pencil, small hole punch, ribbon {for box closure}, extra card stock or patterned paper/stamp/ink for tag.

Please note: you may click on the link underneath the picture below for a PDF of these instructions.


#1}  Place the paper at 2″. Punch and score.



#2}  Move it over to 4″. Punch and score.

#3}  Repeat steps #1 and #2 on remaining three sides.



#4} Round all four corners.



#5}  Fold all score lines and crease with a bone folder.

#6}  Cut on both sides of one of the rectangles. This creates two tabs. Rotate and do the same thing on the opposite side.



#7}  Add adhesive to all four tabs. Line up the score line of each tab with the cut rectangle edges and press to adhere.

#9}  Measure and mark with the pencil where you want the holes punched. I measured in about 1/4″ in from the rounded points. Punch holes.

#10} Thread the ribbon through the holes on the two tabs that will be lower. Gently pull both of the ribbon tails until the two tabs are touching. Then thread them underneath through the other two holes so that both ribbon tails are on the outside. Tie in a bow.
