1 Die-cut the sides of the box from Mint cardstock. Die-cut the top and base from white cardstock and use the heart pattern die to add detail, adhering a piece of pink cardstock trimmed to size below the die-cut hearts.

2 Use a PC and printer to print out the names of the guests onto an A4 sheet of Mint cardstock.

3 Use the tag die to strategically crop the name of the recipient and die-cut tags from pink cardstock and gold glitter card.

4 Trim the glitter tag to size and attach to the Mint tag.

5 Use a length of white baker’s twine to attach the tags to the assembled box.
