Thinking about packaging for sending out the pendants I have been making (see here) I have been experimenting with making little boxes. Trying to avoid gluing or fastening I found a template for a folded box on the ever-reliable internet. Looking around for some lightweight card to experiment with, I found a pile of Christmas cards on my desk, waiting to be recycled. These proved to be a perfect weight for these little boxes. The next bit of the experiment was to decorate my own, so I printed the template onto some 180 gsm watercolour paper, splashed some coloured inks on it in a random way and folded it up. I’m not sure I will be able to use this style of box for posted items as the handles stand up and are likely to be squashed in the post, but I’m sure they will come in handy for something!
