When we were making our potato and sponge printed gift wrap a week or so ago, we also whipped up a few recycled cereal box gift boxes, and the results are just too cute, and oh so simple to do by yourself, or with the kids.
I'll very likely be making some more of these over the course of Chanukah, and especially since I've realized that our gift toppers from plastic grocery bags complete the project perfectly. 100% recycled gift wrap, and looking so much more from the heart than anything one could ever buy.
- recycled cereal boxes, opened carefully at the seams
- dense sponges and potatos
- a pen to draw the candle wicks
I used a dense sponge for the candle, and a potato for the flame, though I have to say, stamping with the sponge is so great, and one can stamp about four times before reloading with paint.
For more stamping instructions and inspiration, do check out my previous post, potato and sponge stamped gift wrap.
Okay, gotta run, still have lots of crafting to do in order to fill this gift packaging!
