You + Me* DIY: Stop-motion packaging

When we were thinking of how to deliver the video, sending an email with a link seemed way too informal, but sending an over-produced package didn’t seem right, either. The solution? A DIY sleeve made to look (and work) like a record sleeve. We’ve provided a pattern for you so you can design your own jacket, along with a blank record so you can put in your own text. It could be super cute to use a custom stamp kit (kind of like these business cards or this wedding invitation suite over at design sponge), or hire a calligrapher to write out your names and the date of your wedding, then use that on the jacket and record. We opted for a transparent envelope with a wrap-around label so that the picture of Mike and Amber would show through, but you could also use any other 5″ square envelope. After you’re done designing, the assembly is easy. Cut out your “record jacket” with an exacto knife (be sure you use a sharp one, or you’ll get kind of fuzzy edges like I did) and ruler, and score the lines between the flaps and the front of the jacket. Fold with a bone folder (to make your creases nice and crisp), and glue the flaps to the back of the jacket. Use the record template to customize the template that comes with your cd labels. The possibilities are endless! If you’re stuck, Trent Bailey and You + ME* offers custom packaging design along with stop motion save the dates.
