Upcycled Packaging

Upcycled boxes, pouches and envelopes!
When I started making jewelry I had to buy boxes to ship the items in so that they wouldn't be damaged. This drove me crazy, what a waste! I hated the idea of buying little boxes, I still do.

I was totally inspired when I received an order I place with my friend Molly at Seeking Serendipity. She makes her own boxes out of paper! It was so beautiful, way nicer than the crappy little cardboard ones I was buying.

I pulled out all my scrapbooking paper and started learning how to fold my own boxes, envelopes and pouches. I never really got into the whole scrapbooking thing but I sure did collect a ton of the beautiful paper from the scrapbooking section of Micheal's. I did do some book making, that was cool, but very time consuming.

I'm thrilled to now have the perfect project for all that paper and upcycled options for shipping my items.
