Pretty Meds Box

Pretty Meds Box


Hello world wide web! 

How are we all doing today? Please comment or email me and you will win a prize. I will pick out someone at random who comments on this blog post, comments on the Youtube video or emails me regarding this blog post and YouTube tutorial. Get typing folks!

Today's project is a lovely get well themed gift. The DSP I used is retired because it took me 5 times of redoing this video to get it right! So long that I ran out of DSP and I am currently waiting my next order. 

Measurements -

  • Piece of DSP - 7 inches x 4 3/4 inches
  • On the long side score at 7/8 inch on both sides
  • On the short side score at 7/8 inches, 2 1/8 inch, 3 inches, 4 1/4 inches
  • Cut up all squares on each short side and stop when you hit the first score line on the long side. 
  • Notch into the squares a little
  • There is a thin section, cut off both ends and notch into the strip left.
  • Add adhesive to that thin strip and add adhesive to one of the rectangles on one end. Stick that together by putting the squares in and then folding over the rectangle ends
  • On the other end stick on some ribbon and wrap it around the box, tie a bow at the top to keep it closed. 


I bought my meds containers at the supermarket and pound shop. You can search online if you need one. 

These are a great gift for someone who is sick, been diagnosed with a condition or hand surgery. Its a practical gift, didn't cost much but holds a lot of meaning by adding the handmade box. Keep the box means the person can keep their medication hidden in their pocket or handbag. 

Hope you enjoy!
