SelfPackaging has a box for each occasion: for Christmas you have the box in the shape of a star, for Easter the rabbit one… Then we considered that another special occasion as Valentine’s Day should have a proper box. That can not be another thing that a heart to melt somebody else’s heart down.

As always, the inner part is up to you (chocolates, jewellery, might it be a special ring?), and about the outer part… let us share with you some ideas

What we need:

- Colour papers: Sorry, for Valentine’s Day, we can’t avoid it, the main colour is pink.
- Glue
- Pencil
- Scissors


Once you have everything, let’s start. Take one of the colour papers -I think you don’t have any other chance, it’s pink- and draw a spiral on it. Then, cut it and, from the centre to the outside, blend the paper in spiral shape as well (hard to explain, easy to see on the below pictures).

Put glue at the back, the smallest part, and repeat the sequence the times you wish, or the times you need to make all the items to cover your box.

Here you are, our lovely box ready to give it as a love present. You have, at the same time, a bouquet of flowers and a nice heart ;)

We mixed the Valentine’s pink with shades of ‘nude’ and brown which give the box a ‘romantic’ look.

If you don’t have so much time or you don’t want to spend it on that issue, you can use the same technique to reproduce that cute heart in a smaller scale as we did. You know we are cord fans… some cord around the box to give it a ‘handmade look’ and labels with love messages or if you don’t have enough hearts yet, cut one label in heart shape.

Ok, let’s stop talking about hearts, you also use this paper technique we show you to decorate a box, using it as a motive: small bouquets of flowers on the box corners and the well-know cord and label decoration.

Super ready to see your ideas and what you’re going to put inside. We love ‘romantic presents’.

Happy early Valentine’s Day!

To decorate weddings and birthday parties, for candy bars, for original presents...
You asked us for them and they are almost here: buying popcorn boxes in SelfPackaging will be possible soon.

But we give you the privilege to see them, for the first time, because we can't wait the box to be launched!!

It will be available in two different sizes and in a lot of cool colours. So, next time, at Christmas for instance, you will be able to decorate your gifts in a nice way:

Just writing on it and a pair of washi-tapes. ready for success!

We are showing you the boxes in kraft, but... Do you imagine them in colours?

Or, a while ago we suggested you the Halloween decorations. We know that this scary period is over but we love these both cute and frightening boxes. 

We are sure that the popcorn box will be a boost in our gift boxes catalogue and it will become into one of your favourites ones.

Always, always with lots of love

New year, new illusions, new dreams…
Have you made a list with your good intentions for this year? We always try to accomplish all of them, but always, at least, there’s one missing.

What are your plans for 2013? Any good news: wedding, a baby is coming… If the answer is yes, we give you few favours to handle in your special event. So, another thing not to worry about anymore.

If the good piece of news is a baby delivery, we suggest you some baptism ideas.
What does everybody love? Easy to answer, sweets! Well, sometimes we hate it because of the calories we gain with it, but from time to time it is a good pleasure.

If it’s a boy, you can choose the light blue box (Ref. 1504) and fill it with cookies with blue motives to match with it. We chose two hearts, a T-shirt and a flower cookie. If it’s a baby girl and you follow the colour traditions, no worries. We’ve got plenty of colours for you on our website… We have all the rainbow range and much more for you.

The cover can be decorated as we did. Cut some small triangle pieces in different prints and stick them on laces to pretend to be banderols. A loving message on the box, always help.

But if your mind is more squared, we have the ideal box for you, (Ref. 1506_S). Cut a label, print a message on it (for example the name of your baby and the date of birth), decorate it and wrap the box with cord… et.. voilà… You have another baptism favour ready.  

Put inside whatever you want, we’re sure you have some great ideas to provide us… We give you the packaging, and you bring us the imagination. Good deal! ;)
So, we’ll show you another option, our small pillow box (Ref.1614). We cut two types of labels and decorated them different: one in stripes and the other one with a baby bottle, and both of them decorated with a two-cloured laces.

Send us your baptism favours pics! And Congratulations for your future baby birth this 2013!
