Boxing Clever - Designer: Hels Sheridan
Another brilliant recycled packaging idea from Hels.
Additional materials from those listed in the magazine…
- Studio G alphabet stamps
- 2 x kitchen roll tubes
Take two tubes from inside kitchen rolls and squash them flat, using a bone folder to sharpen the fold. Fold them both in half and use a very strong glue to stick the halves together to form four pockets. Use off cuts of mountboard, painted with the Lake Eco-Friendly paint and stamped with the Magenta stamp to make covers for the tubes. Apply more of the Lake Paint using Cut-n-Dry foam to the edges of the tubes and the tops too, this makes them blend in nicely. Cut a small piece of card, colour with paint and glue over the folded pieces at the back of the tubes – this will just neaten up the piece and also holds the tubes together. Pop some ribbon in between the covers and the front and back pocket so this makes a tie. Use Studio G alphas to make a title for the booklet and glue this to the front cover.
