You cannot remove or add mini's to an EasyBox, but all EasyBox’s contain 2 or 3 mini's that require personalisation for you to customise your StoryBox.


How do I make a StoryBox?

Ans: The website is designed to make this really easy!
Step One – Pick your frame (size, colour etc) or pick an EasyBox. You will be asked to name your project, this enables you to save your work and retrieve it at a later date.
Step Two – Search from hundreds of mini’s to fill the frame, ‘drag and drop’ mini's from the search results into your frame.  Delete and add mini's to the frame as many times as you want.  The site automatically sizes and places the mini's into a grid system. This step is skipped for an EasyBox.
The price of the frame and mini's are displayed as each item is added (a secondary price is displayed to purchase as a DIY Kit).
Step Three – Personalise your mini's – some mini's require a personal message or photo to be added so the StoryBox is customised to your requirements.
Step Four – Review, confirm and checkout on Paypal.
