MAKE // RAINBOW TWINE BOX

We are big fans of Divine Twine, an eco-luxe line of bakers twine. So we were thrilled when Whisker Graphics agreed to be a sponsor for our PACKAGING 101 workshop. Divine Twine comes in a lovely array of colors and the weight is heavier than many of the other bakers twine out there. There are so many ways to incorporate twine into your pretty packages and today we're showing one cute [and quick] way to spiffy up a plain white box.

S U P P L I E S

1. Assortment of Divine Twine (we used cherry, cotton candy, orange, lemon, green apple, aqua + purple plum)

2. White box (a kraft box would be a sweet alternative)

3. Scissors

I N S T R U C T I O N S 

1. Measure the width of all four sides of the box, add eight inches. This will be the length of the twine.

2. Cut all the bakers twine to the length in Step 1.

3. Gather together up all the bakers twine.

4. Tie the bakers twine around the box. Secure with a bow. Trim ends.

Enjoy giving a rainbox twine box to a friend!

PACKAGING 101 

{Photograph by Sally J Shim}

We spent many hours brainstorming ideas for projects for our first PACKAGING 101 workshop. And of course good food was always involved during our work sessions. We had the most fun playing around with all our materials and supplies and seeing how our similar yet different styles reflected in our work.

WELCOME TO SHIMTOKK

Hello and welcome to SHIMTOKK! We are excited about this new space. After meeting last fall we bonded over our love of design, paper goods and packaging supplies. Earlier this year we started thinking about offering a workshop that would encompass all the things we love and soon enough we were teaching our first PACKAGING 101 workshop at SUMMER SCHOOL PORTLAND. With a few workshops under our belt we are in the midst of planning for more fun + clever classes. SHIMTOKK will be a space for us to document some of our projects, workshops and nifty tutorials each week. We hope you enjoy it!

xoxo,

Sally + Joke
