August Customer Gift Time! As promised yesterday, today I am bringing you the gift that went with the card. I made sure that each customer got the matching card and gift box. The gift box is a fold flat box and is sized for a lip balm.
I love these boxes. Not only are they really cute, being just 2″ square, but they fold flat and need no adhesive!!! This is great if you want to get ahead with your Gift Box making (although you may need them to be a little larger!) Hmm, I will have to do some in a larger size in time for Christmas!
I should add that there is nothing new about an adhesive free, fold flat box. These types of box have been doing the rounds for years, but that is not to say there is anything wrong with that. The older ideas are often the best!
What would you want to put in these tiny boxes? I can think of lots of little gifts that would be perfect. Oh, and they would make great swaps if you are a Demonstrator – a fold flat box makes packing so easy. I may have to think about that for OnStage in November. I will be going to Orlando for the ‘Live’ Event. There will be about 7,000 of us from all over the world! Unfortunately none of my Team are able to join me, but they will be representing the Sparkling Sunflowers at the UK event. I have a few goodies planned for them, but more of that later.
There is lots of excitement coming up later this week as it is the big Team get together. Over 80 of the Team are meeting up in Milton Keynes. There will be lots of crafty fun and games. Prizes, gifts, swaps, and an enormous Raffle!! More of that next week though. I don’t want to spoil any of the plans.
