As I browse through for more project inspirations, I came across Elaine's Magic Boxes. She makes exquisite boxes that are just lovely. Inspired by her beautiful boxes, I made up my own, simpler exploding gift boxes all from upcycled materials which I hope could be sold to my shop soon!
Here, I used recycled boxes, those sturdy plastic packaging that conform to the product for securing the butterflies, and die-cut magazine / catalog pages for butterflies. I stamped the box and the recycled paper I wrapped it with, and there you go!
I am focused on recycling packaging boards and paper because I have a thing for conserving our trees. Learn why here.
