First of all a box!!

Your box needs to be one that you will love having close by you and that you will want to use everyday. The choice is important!

I keep mine in my bedroom next to my reading light, so it’s handy for last thing at night.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_single_image image=”396″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern”][vc_column][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_column_text]My box is turquoise, has a hinged lid and is covered with pink birds, white and pink flowers, pale green leaves and lined with turquoise paper.

 

I love the pattern and colours . It makes me feel good and lifts my spirit whenever I see it.

 

It was the smallest one of a set of two boxes that came from W H Smiths a couple of years ago. [/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_single_image image=”397″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern”][vc_column][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_column_text]Choose your box carefully. 

The size I would say needs to be

  1. No bigger than a piece of printer paper (A4 or foolscap). You don’t want it to take up too much room.
  2. No smaller than a piece of printer paper folded in half (A5 or an average notebook).
  3. Height around or a bit less than that of a shoe box. 

 

The lid can be one that lifts off or folds back. Mine has a lid that folds back and that feels good to me but you may prefer one with a lid that you take off and place by the side. 

 

Where to find a box to buy? 

  • W H Smith. 
  • Paper Chase. 
  • John Lewis. 
  • The Card Factory.
  •  Not on The High Street

 

All have gorgeous ones in the UK.

 

Try googling keepsake boxes or gift boxes.

 

If you buy online, do make sure that you double check the sizes. Many gift boxes will be just tiny ones.

 

Go for a box that measures up to a maximum of about 30 x 21 x 10 cm. 12 x 8 x 4 inches

 

Want to make your own? 

Mega easy to do and then you can have exactly the box you want. 

Just keep a watch on the packaging that arrives through your door. Shoe boxes are awesome.

Clerks in the UK are sending out shoes in neat little, plain brown, cardboard boxes with hinged lids. Which are ideal. ( I have put together instructions for covering one of these, just tap the link for a free download).[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_single_image image=”358″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”full_width” angled_section=”no” text_align=”left” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern”][vc_column][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_column_text]

Found a box to cover! Fantastic 

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]—–Read on to find out More——[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”transparent”][vc_column_text]First essentials to put in your box. 

  1. A journal or notebook. I know, you may be thinking how boring! I’ve tried that. I would never keep it up! Stay with me, you’re going to need one, and if you are a journaling ninja stay with me, I am going to take you to places you’ve never been before.
  2. A pen. Stating the obvious a bit here, but get yourself a decent pencil or pen. Being the design freak that I am, I have a box, note book and pen all in complimentary colours.
  3. A mirror, small enough to fit in your box but big enough to be able to see yourself. I have a small circular one, hand made in India with a gold sequinned surround found in a gift shop. (I love anything gold that glitters)! Compact mirrors are a good size. Try Etsy, amazon and eBay.
  4. Thank you cards. A selection of cards so that you never have to hesitate for a moment before sending a thank you card.
  1. Book marks. To play the first of the games. Make your own book marks or print some off from the downloads. These are a bit tricky to buy as the backs of the bookmarks need a surface that can be written on! A bit of pretty coloured ribbon finishes them off.
  2. Downloads and templates for games and crafts. 

 

Awesome! Incredible! Fantastic! You’re on the way. You’ve got your box.


Time to start
playing the games. See you there!
