OCC - Reuse your Packaging!

Hi everyone - hope your weekend is going well so far! I just wanted to pop in and tell you about this week's OCC challenge. Rebecca is our hostess and her challenge is to "Reuse your Packaging! Use those boxes, cans, bags, plastic clamshells or embellishment bubbles you might usually throw out to create a fabulous project!"

Do you think I could find anything to use?! my recent purchases have all been 6x6 paper pads (yummy!) or have had little/no packaging. I guess that's a (good) sign of these reduce, reuse, recycle times!

The photo above is a decorated prima like tin, a great way to reuse gorgeous papercraft packaging - below is a photo of a tin I recycled. You can find the post for the tin here.

I hope you'll join us this week at OCC - I'll be on the lookout for something I can recycle!


  1. Very cute, Sarah! Hope you have a great weekend!

  2. Both of your altered cans are sweet, Sarah. Wonderful papers and embellishments. It's fun to make these altered projects. They make great gifts and are such fun to use!

    Hope you are having a great weekend!


  3. Yep, it is good that you don't have much excess packaging! I love your decorated tins! Glad you had fun!

  4. Sarah, just adorable. I love "restyling" empty containers. You can use them for just about any purpose or dress them up for any occasion. Thanks again for a great post.

  5. So cute!! Love that sweet little image on the first one!! Great job with the challenge!!

  6. I love decorating tins too! Both are just beautiful, that monkey image is adorable!
