When I saw this packaging from Pink Paislee, I knew I wanted to reuse it! (Considering I had three of them! LOL!)
I cut the back/top part (real technical) off of it and made a clear gift box out of it! I used the scraps from my April Nook kit to make a sleeve. Just got a Scor-it and wow!--do I love it! I simply scored a piece of paper sized at 3.25 inches X 12. I scored at 1 inch, 4 inches, 1.2 inch, 4.2 inches and folded to make my sleeve. Some adhesive to hold the ends together and the hard part was done!
Here is the trick! I also made a hidden gift card holder! See the blue and orange paper--it is a pocket!
I cut it to be 3.75 X 4 inches and put a thin strip of adhesive along each side and the bottom. I placed in on the sleeve. The Maya Road Sheer is placed on top of the blue and orange to hide most of the gift card. Add the chipboard stem, brad and other decorations and, viola!, a gift box! I put Coffee Nips inside since I am giving a Dunkin Donuts card with the box! Imagine doing this for any occasion--it would be so easy to customize and puts your plastic packaging to good use!
Here are some other shots!
Off to get ready for Ella's birthday party--making a Cinderella cake! Pictures to come later! (I hope-LOL!)
