Ribbon / Scarf Pull

How to make Ribbon / Scarf Pull


Baebe Mailing Box
Box Cutter or Sharp Scissors
Ribbons OR Scarves
Heavy Book


Wooden Rings or Plastic Baby Links

Before we get started, if your mailing box has lots of tape and shipping labels you may want to turn it inside out.  To do this, simply open the lid, then unfold the front panel carefully so as not to rip the box. Turn the flattened box over so that the white side is facing up, then fold the creases back the other way to remake the box with the brown side facing out. 

Step 1

Use a box cutter or sharp scissors to create slots in the top of the box around 2cm long. You will need 2 slots on opposite sides for every ribbon or scarf you wish to use. We made a total of 8 slots.

Step 2

Open the box, then thread the ribbons or scarves through the slots so that each end pokes out of the top. Tie a thick knot in each end to stop them from pulling all the way through. If you like you can also tie on a wooden ring or plastic baby link to some of the ends for an extra grasping, sensory element.

Step 2 - variation for scarves

If you are using scarves, feel free to leave off the knots at the end to allow your little one the satisfaction of pulling the scarf completely free from the box!

Step 3

Place a heavy book inside the box. This will give it some extra weight and prevent it from moving as much when your little one is exploring and pulling on the Ribbons or Scarves.

Close up the box with the book inside and you’re ready to roll. Sit back, relax and enjoy that hot coffee mama, can we get a hell yeah?
