Happiness in a Bespoke Box
In a world where being busy and productive is valued, creative crafts provide a constructive, yet relaxing outlet. Creative pursuits have been shown to have a calming effect on our mind and body. They can reduce anxiety, depression and stress, whilst boosting the positive emotions that accompany a sense of achievement.
Mastering a new craft isn’t instant, so you may need a little help to get you started. For many people, joining a craft group offers a chance to socialise and gain inspiration from like-minded souls. However, with access to video tutorials and online craft boxes, the opportunity to give it a go, in your own time and at your own pace is possible.
Happy Berry Crochet
Aylesbury Box Company produce printed craft boxes for a number of online retailers. One such example is Happy Berry Crochet. Founder Laura Eccleston admits to a passion for yarns from a long age. As a child, she would often be found French knitting or making friendship bracelets and as an adult, she became hooked on crochet.
Crochet had long been seen as a hobby for the elderly and Laura found that many of the patterns were far from inspiring. She began designing her own contemporary style and started to share crochet patterns and video tutorials online and in 2009, Happy Berry was founded.
Revival sees Traditional Crafts hit the Catwalk
A growing interest in creative pursuits has resulted in a revival of traditional crafts. Given a modern twist, crochet featured in a number of 2017 catwalk collections, including the designers Adam Selman, Jeremy Scott and Jonathan Anderson. Who would have thought that crochet would be a feature in Vogue Magazine?
Whilst these designers have moved onto new materials, their endorsement has helped to make crochet popular again. As evidence of this, Happy Berry has produced over 400 video tutorials for an audience of over 500,000 people.
Happy Berry produces and sells craft kits, along with a range of crochet supplies via an online shop. Laura wanted a bespoke box to send the orders out. Working with Aylesbury Box Company, Happy Berry now has colourful, printed packaging for online orders.
Simply add a tag and these bespoke boxes would make the ideal gift! Who do you know who would love to receive a seasonally-themed craft box? Remember the health benefits too; when you discover a creative pursuit that you enjoy, you can unwind and gain considerable satisfaction from your efforts. It really is happiness in a box!
E-commerce Packaging for Online Retailers
Whilst the Happy Berry boxes give the company a unique identity which excites recipients, they are a relatively low-cost packaging solution. Having initially set up the design, we can apply the three colour flexographic print as part of the box manufacturing process.
