Once the text box is ready we will add it as symbol. Open the Symbols Panel and then select the rectangle and the text and drag them to the Symbols Panel.

When you will drag the selection to the Symbols Panel, Symbol Options dialogue box will appear on the artboard. In that dialogue box, you can give a name to your symbol and then click OK.
