Purple boxes

Hello again! I don't know about you but I have had a lovely trip round the world on todays bloghop!! Its been great to see everyones projects & how differently they have all turned out. Its also been lovely to recieve some wonderful comments about my own effort - thankyou so much!!

Now. I would like some help. I keep 'rescuing' these box lids from work as I can't bear for them to be thrown away!! But I'm getting quite a pile now & I know that there will always be more coming (they come as part of a christening gift to protect the plastic until its out on display) I need some ideas as to what I could do with them! I know I could do something like a pen/pencil pot but is there anything else?

Some measure 8.5cm all round & others are slightly bigger at 9cms all round & they are all open at the top as you can see from the photo!
I look forward to hearing your suggestions (keep it clean though lol)

  1. They could be decorated as gift containers....for cookies,a recipe holder, mini album etc.

  2. I'd use them to organise stash - fill them with buttons or ribbons or bits and bobs - in the first instance. You could attach lots together for an organizer tray!

    Pen/pencil pot came to mind too (great for gifts!) or other gift ideas would be to half-fill with tissue paper or shredded paper and top with a few little treats (eg small soaps or bath salts).

    Have fun experimenting! x

  3. I see attatching them together has already been suggested...good idea.

    You could use them as photocube and then house a mini album in them....or

    Decorate them and but some foam/oasis in and make a vase of paper flowers

    Or as I would do continue to stash them hee hee


  4. Yes, I think I would stick them all together to make a cube of 3x3 boxes, and decorate, stick on the wall and store ink pads and other small bits. Or somehow make little drawers to go in them for a mini chest of drawers for stash. Just don't ask me how I'd make the little drawers!

    Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog, BTW! :o)


Hello! I love comments so fire away!!
