Anti Bac Tutorial

A lot of you contacted me about the bigger dimensions for the Anti Bacterial Soap Holders.  I made another holder this morning and took some pictures along the way to share w/ you.  :)

Here is the base of the holder.  It measures 3" x 10 3/4"
Score at 1 1/4", 2 1/2", 6" and 7 1/4"

The second piece, the 'box insert' measures 1 3/4" x 6 1/2"
Score on the 6 1/2" side at 1/2", 1 3/4", 4 3/4" and 6"

***Turn and score at 1 1/2" from each side--this will give you a 1/4" flaps.
Sorry for the confusion--I typed the wrong dimension in! It is corrected now.   I appreciate those who contacted me to let me know. Thank you!!  :)

Next punch out your oval (see next picture below) and cut away the 2 squares on the each corner leaving only the flaps in the center (near the cut out oval).

Because this is a little wider box, you can easily give yourself that little extra needed to put your antibac in. 

Add sticky strip to the flaps and the 1/2" ends of your box insert.

Here is your holder after setting your box insert in the base.  Be sure to stick your edges down well.  :)

While some have used velco to keep their holders closed--I chose ribbon.  I think I have defective velcro.  It simply won't stick!  If you have any tips for my velcro dilemna I would love to hear them!!!

  1. Great idea and perfect timing! Just bought a bunch of these antibac sanitizers over the weekend for gifts and now I have a perfect way to wrap it up! Thank you!

  2. I would love to have the directions for this box. I think it is so stinkin' cute and as a nurse I can give them away without being rude.
