I’m often asked for bespoke boxes, it’s part of my ‘remit’ now, and I absolutely love a challenge.
I like that people trust me to design their boxes, but also that they let me stretch my creative wings a little too!
This box is a requested box, and it the finished box’s measurements were crucial. It finishes at 8.5cm wide, 7.5cm tall and 2.5cm deep.
But you know, despite it being a requested box, I do love the finished article. I’m a firm believer in making sure that I truly love the products I make and design, because if I don’t love them, my clients won’t love them, and probably, neither will you!
So, I wanted a box that could be make en masse, will in advance, would store easily without taking up precious storage space, but that could be fully embellished aswell.
And of course, a box that doesn’t require copious amounts of adhesive is always top of my priority list! ONE PIECE OF STICKY STRIP PEOPLE, ONE PIECE (I really push the boat out, don’t I…?!)
