At JBC Online we understand how difficult it can be to find the perfect packaging, that's why we have worked hard to bring you the best packaging we can. To help you put it together we have created two short instruction videos. 

So simply follow our quick and easy guide to assembling your gift and mail boxes below to fashion the perfect handcrafted packaging. These boxes not only personalise your gift, but also protect your product by keeping each item separately packaged.

How To Assemble Your Gift Box

How To Assemble Your Mail Box


Decoration Tips:

Here are five handy tips if you would like to be creative with your design, to portray a product that speaks to the heart whilst illustrating your imagination effectively:

  1. Decorate with tissue paper; layer the tissue paper to create a psychedelic and abstract feel.
  2. Get in touch with nature by adding leaves or flowers to the ornamentation; this is especially successful if the elements you attach are ingredients in the product itself. For example, elderflowers attached as decoration on a gift box containing elderflower cordial.
  3. To align the appearance with the product, employ a wide range of materials: ribbons, ties, rope, felt or wool. This is in order to ensure that you have enough relevant material to draw from. For instance, a product with a nautical theme would have a greater visual impact if rope was used as the wrapping component, as it would relate better to the product itself.
  4. If you don’t have the time to draw or illustrate directly on the box itself (or worry about your technical ability!), yet still want to depict the dedication you put into your design, instead use stickers or stamps. You can even tailor these stickers and stamps to personalise your product even more. 
  5. Finally, do not forget to add a label for your customer to let them know that you put careful thought into their packaging and product.

We wish you good luck with your packaging and artistic designs!
