Recycle those product containers~

Hi everyone!!! I love to recycle and I love to make little gifts out of packaging that I would normally throw away.  It saves me money and it is handmade!!! I used this from the tape packages and made some Valentine treats and birthday treats

The paper is by Paper Studio and I turned to Prima, Jenni Bowlin and Epiphany Crafts for embellishments. Helmar 450 Quick Dry was the glue I used.

The quick way to do this is cover the insert with pattern paper, fill with treats and you are ready to decorate the front. Add some ribbon and a tag and you have just made a handmade gift!!!

This set is made out of Vintage Street Market products.  They are so cute and kids love them!!!
Hope you will try this ~ let me know what you come up with!!! See ya soon!

What a great idea! I like using my product packaging too -- sometimes I use pretty packaging as cardstock.
