Getting started

Collect the following items:

  • A sheet of thin paper long enough to wrap around your item
  • Scissors
  • Ruler
  • Pen
  • Tape
  • The item to be wrapped in sleeve

Step 1

Cut a strip to use as your sample sleeve. Make sure the strip is long enough to wrap all the way around your item. Now is also a good time to consider how wide you would like your sleeve to be. A sleeve extend all the way to the edge of your item, or you can choose to make it thinner than your object.

Step 2

Tape one end of the paper strip to the item. Be sure to tape it exactly on the corner edge, not above or below the corner edge.

Step 3

Start wrapping the paper strip around the object. If you are wrapping a box or something with hard edges make sure to use your fingers to crease the paper at the corners. This is an important step as you will measure these crease marks later on. Keep tension on the paper and continue this step on each corner.

Step 4

When you get back to the corner you started at take your pen and carefully mark the last crease. Do your best to make sure this mark lands right on top of where the paper starts.

Step 5

Carefully cut the strip on the line. You may now unwrap your measuring sleeve and carefully remove the tape.

Step 6

Measure each panel from crease to crease and write the measurements down. If it's difficult seeing the exact middle of the crease try carefully marking the center with a pen first, then measure to the pen marks. Enter the measurements for each panel in the fields below

Once completed be sure to enter your name and email, and click the Submit button so we receive your info.
