Last week I showed you the cute crochet snail I made. Now you can see how I packaged it to give to my sister-in-law. If you're expecting skill, sophistication, creative genius... you'll be disappointed!
I started with a box I already had. An alarm clock had been packaged in it, and I'd been saving it for the last one or two years as it was a good little box, in brown kraft paper/card (or some such similar material).
The box was a bit damaged where I'd removed the labelling, but decorating it would cover that.
I started by drawing and cutting out a big flower out of some pretty green and pink paper to cover the worst of the damage...
... then I remembered I had some cardstock flower stickers in my supplies (from my card-making days) - so I thought, why stop there with just one flower?! Let's not be stingy! I decided to add more flowers to that side of the box. Well... then I just carried on and covered the whole thing!
As I said... absolutely no skill required here!
The box was a perfect fit for the snail. A bit of pretty spotty tissue paper...
...and snaily was happily ensconced in his temporary home!
I used washi tape on the underside of the lid, to cover an alarm clock related sticker that I couldn't remove - the pattern goes well with brown box I thought. And an extra flower sticker for fun!
There you have it - cheap and cheerful! What do you think?
