I Just Saved About Fifteen Bucks Making a Handmade Box.

Posted on Friday, March 20th, 2009 at 1:27 pm by Makenna Goodman

I needed somewhere to put my binder clips. They're pesky, and scattered all over my desk.

I just used up the last of my Yogi Tea bags (African Redbush Peach). And right before I tossed it in the recycling bin, I noticed the inside of the box was…beautiful. Like henna. I unglued the box and flipped it inside out. I folded it again, into a box. A new box. Label free.

This all took about two minutes.

I'm going home tonight, digging through the recycling, and doing this many more times. Either I'll use the re-formed boxes for wrapping gifts, or to package my own tea come harvest season (I'm growing chamomile.)

Try it. Save money on packaging and feel good about creating your own art, using trash.
