I’m so excited to share this fun self-closing box idea with you today! I’ve seen these odd-shaped boxes before, but getting one from my friend/fellow demonstrator, Nancy Reynolds as a gift at OnStage this past November gave me that extra motivation to start making them myself. And WOW!! They are easy! Click here to see the box Nancy made for me. (She CASEd it from the lovely Dawn Griffith. Nancy gave me the deep red one!)

I created many of them with the All My Love Designer Paper from the 2019 Occasions Catalog, but I also created a larger one with the Floral Romance Designer Paper, another new product in the 2019 Occasions Catalog.

I wanted to share with all of you how to make these boxes using some of our new products in the 2019 Occasions Catalog, so I put together a variety of them and then shared the step-by-steps in my Wednesday Facebook Live Broadcast.

I uploaded the recorded version of this video to my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook). Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), check out the measurements and full products list below, scroll through the close-up photos of the boxes I presented that day (plus one more!), and then let me know if you have any questions. I think you’ll enjoy what I have to share.


Here are the measurements you’ll need if you plan to recreate the dark pink (Lovely Lipstick) box with the Balmy Blue Organdy Ribbon bow (the one I demonstrated in the video). And below and above are close-up photos of all the ones that I shared in the video plus… one more!
