So today, I thought I'd share with you a couple of the things I have made that started their lives as something else. Some of them are packaging, but some are now "new" objects in their own right. I should point out that these are not all my original ideas - there's only about a dozen "new" ideas in the craft world, the rest are all variations!!
This is a baby memory tin. Can you guess what it was before?
The ribbon was a challenge. I used my old Stampin' Up! tool kit with the eyelet setter and hammer to make the hole. It was noisy but it worked!
I found the poem online and thought it was such a cute idea. I still have incomplete baby books and my girls are almost 13 & 16! I think one of these would have been much better for me!
This is my personal favourite. It would make a lovely gift box for jewellery or a scarf or other small item. Yep, chocolates too!
I think you may have guessed it started it's life as a strawberry box! I filled it with shreddie that I've had for years, but if you've got a document shredder at home or work, you could make your own.
The cardstock was heat embossed with gold.
Ornament Keepsakes & Holly Jolly Stamp Set work well together don't they?
I'll have more ideas for you tomorrow, so pop back then.
