Three orders into my Etsy career means that there have been three packages to create this week, and here's what I've come up with:
Upcycled origami box with dictionary "ribbon" and vintage button accent.
Equally upcycled pillowbox with vintage sheet music/vintage button "ribbon."
Variation on the origami box theme with curling dictionary "ribbon." ( I promise you, it's all the same half-trashed dictionary that I rescued from the thrift shop years ago...I wouldn't just go about randomly---get it? randomly?--- hacking up reference books...)
Instead of cotton inside, I used a piece of felted green wool to cushion the goods. Which design do you like best? And does anyone have any idea where I can get pre-loved bubble wrap and small shipping boxes? It goes against my eco-sensibilities (and my frugal ones, too) to buy new ones when there must be someplace out there that's recycling---or worse: throwing out---just the supplies I need.
