Pack Away That Packaging - EtsyBlogger's Blog Carnival



Everyone has it.  And what not a better time to face this menace of a pile then at spring-cleaning time. ;o)~ Yes, I'm speaking of that enormous collection of stuffing tissue, popcorn, gift sacks, bows, ribbons, cards, the works ... shall I say more? "etc."  Hence, I found a simple eco-friendly way to stuff away that stuffing by repurposing a large cardboard box that my baby boy's highchair came in.


I simply wrapped this large box in a sturdy, durable, and eye-pleasing wrapping paper; making sure that both the lid and bottom half of the box were still able to open and close with ease.  And there you have it!  I did use a nice Rubbermaid storage container before; however, my packaging supplies out grew it (width wise).  I am very happy to have upgraded to this downgraded alternative. :-)  I hope that you will be pleased with it too.

It looks really good! I need to get my act together. I have wrapping supplies stashed in various closets, drawers, the pantry, etc. *blushes*

And everything looks so pretty as well!

What a pretty box for your packaging! And practical, too. I'm afraid my packaging is spread all over. It is in containers, but everything is here and there, and hard to locate.

Wonderful blog post! I need to get my packaging packed away beautifully just like this...I'm like these other ladies, I've got a little here and a little there...and a little over-flowing over here. Eeek! Great pictures too!
