Check Out the Twisty Box!: 60-Second Fold of the Week
We're having some fun for episode 399! This week's super-special spotlight shines on a brilliant idea for a unique and memorable package design. From our friends at Lahlouh in Burlingame, Calif., this "twisted" self-promotional piece held a branded item and could ship in a box or could be handed out in person.
Trish will take it apart to show you the clever trick that made it happen!
