Review: Decotime Make your own gift box
Recently I posted on my blog a shopping log with lots of craft supplies from Action. Last week I posted mine first review and today it's the second's turn. Making your own gift boxes. And I can already say that the Action does not disappoint me.
Receiving presents is always nice, but I often enjoy giving presents even more :-). So when I saw this package in the Action, I wanted to try it out. Beautiful packaging for a gift makes it even more special, especially if you made it yourself :-). The craft kit with 4 boxes to make cost €0.89.
The first impression is fine. The sheets with the boxes on them look very nice and neat. In addition to the 2 extra A4 sheets full of extra decoration, the package also contains a ribbon, buttons and foam to stick everything on. Unfortunately, in my case the foam had already come loose a bit and was sticking to the sheets. Luckily I was able to remove it without tearing any sheets.
Almost all sheets are neatly pre-cut, so you don't have to cut if you want to start with a box. That's nice. There are also folded edges in the paper, although unfortunately these are sometimes not equally clear everywhere.
Assembling most of the boxes was very easy. All parts fit together nicely. If parts had to be glued, I used double-sided thin tape.
Only the gift box in the shape of a toffee caused some problems. I had to take a closer look at how this should be made. I solved it this way, but I have no idea whether that is correct. Unfortunately, there is no short manual included.
And then I had folded and glued all the boxes (see photo)… and the decorating could begin. That was a lot of fun to do. So many different decorations, really fun!
The end result
- Time: About 1 hour for 4 boxes
- Difficulty: 1 star, easy
- Final grade: 8
Unfortunately, the boxes are made of somewhat thin paper and sometimes it is not entirely clear how to put them together. That's a shame. But otherwise a really nice package to get started with. Do you like to give a little something extra when wrapping presents and do you enjoy decorating? Then this is definitely recommended! I would buy the package again in a heartbeat :-).
