I am so excited to share the first Pretty Packaging Template with all of you, as it has been a design I have loved since I was about 7 years old. Back in March I lost my Grammy to Cancer. We were very close my entire life, until she moved to Kentucky when I was in my early 20’s. She was very into crafts of all kinds, and I credit her with the passion that has been instilled in me at such a young age, through her.

She will be greatly missed, and many of the items being released are a tribute to her and the memories I will cherish forever.

This templates was designed to replicate the cantilever sewing box given to me by my grandmother, when I was seven. The wooden box was so fun! I was in complete awe at how it opened, and all it held! Sadly I no longer have the box. Over time it had broken during one of our moves. Now I have this version that I consider a tribute to my dearest grandmother Shirley Anne, who I called Grammy. She taught me all about crafting and encouraged me to get creative by teaching me from a young age to sew, embroider, and quilt amongst many other things. I owe my creativeness to her. I enjoyed many long summers at her house, and numerous weekends with her as I grew up. This packaging template was designed in her memory as a way for me to remember her, and pass on the feeling of love and happiness that her sewing kit gave me through the years as I think of our time together.

Here are some photos to show you some details, and how this amazing box works!

I used the NEW! Grammy’s Pretty Patterns paper collection for the design on this box.

This is a set of 4 patterns that were inspired by colors and patterns in my grandmother’s apron and sewing box. You will fall in love with the stitched like patterns in the Stitched Garden, the Lace pattern. Having it be accompanied by the timeless accents of the gingham, and polka dot pattern also offered in this collection.

On the sides of the cantilever boxes I added a large bling embellishment to replicate the knob on the original, which was a spool rod to allow you to insert your thread, to be stored in the top side boxes.

I also added some ribbon and an acrylic rose to futher accent the knobs. I think it is a nice touch that she would have loved! My grandmother’s favorite color was pink 😀

All the “joints” on this a movable! The handle is now down on the side so you can further view the details.

I really went all out on the top decor by using the images/sentiments for the NEW! Grammy’s Sewing Kit

I used the spool of thread, the “pattern” element which I built up with other images to suit my project needs, the “Finest Quality” label, the sewing machine, and thimble.

We also have several coordinating cut files, such as the Ribbon Card, Spool of Ribbon and the All Buttoned Up box! In addition to all these coordinating products, we have a variety of Pretty Printables Digital Papers that are sure to accent your project perfectly!

 I used some screw top brands for my joints to replicate the one’s on my original box, but you can  use any style of brad you choose. I love the realistic look!

As mentioned above, the two boxes on the top of the main box slide open!

How fun is that? Now you have one large compartment, and 2 smaller compartments to gift a plethora of items in.

 Obviously when gluing my top embellishments I took into consideration how the boxes slide open, so I adjusted how it was glued to allow for that, and not have it interfere with opening the template, smaller boxes, and putting gifts in either compartment.

There are these little tabs on the lid of the smaller boxes so you can easily open the flaps.

Easy peasy!

Now the bottom is also embellished! I used the same bling knobs to add to “feet” to the bottom.

It is all about the details!

I used some bling, brads, pearl string, ribbon and acrylic flowers to accentuate the vintage feel.

You can find all sorts of cool supplies to further embellish this template in the wood section of a craft store too! They have spools, knobs, hinges….you get the idea!! Limitless possibilities!

This package is sure to bring on the same happiness I cherish now, as it gets created from cardstock and passed along from person to person. The top two boxes open, and slide over to the side to allow you access to the large rounded box. You can package up so many wonderful items in here for someone special to remember you by, and to enjoy!

This can also be used an a Picnic Basket, or a Tackle Box!

There is no limit to what this can be designed for 😀

Thank you for joining us for the first preview 😀 Be sure you visit the team because they too have some AMAZING ideas to share with our new products!
