Think Outside the Box – DIY Gift Box
Happy Monday! Here’s fun and easy idea to start your week…
I love hot tea and I usually flatten my tea boxes and recycle them in our city’s curbside recycling service.
However, last week while I was waiting for my tea to steep, I was admiring the inside of my favorite tea. How pretty was it with its lotus design?!
So I got all the tea boxes out of the recycling and turned them into gift boxes. It’s funny what is right in front of us sometimes.
First, I cut the box down one side and opened it up.
Then I simply put it back together with the inside out. You could use tape or glue. I like to tape the inside of the box so nothing shows.
And there you have it a quick and resourceful gift box!
TIP: This concept can be applied to shipping box ideas as well. You can use cereal boxes and other post consumer paper waste to create shipping boxes. My favorite cereal box will hold over 50 wine corks for shipping!
Look for our Corky Wednesdays post soon, and until then check out this upcycled giveaway on Love 2 Upcycle. Who knew you could do so many cool things with an old spoon?!
Have a great week!
