Turn Craft Packaging into a Gift!

Hello everyone. Just wanted to share a project I made using by reusing craft packaging. You know those simple packages Chipboard Cuts, Ribbon, Brads, and more come in? Why not turn them into a gift?! Here I have added some great designer paper, chipboard element decor, ribbon, letter stickers, and candy to make a super simple, but super cute gift! To make your own, first wash packaging well and let dry. Then, simply measure the inside of the packaging and cut your DP to size. Add candy, place paper on the back, and use tape to help secure the back. Add your ribbon, embellishments, and a gift tag if desired and WAH LAH! Done! Thanks for looking!


  1. Love it SJ! Can't wait to see more of your projects here! :)

  2. How cute this little candy holder is!
    love the little mittens!Great idea!

  3. I love these- made one last St. Patty's day as a TY for my Mom who knit the kiddos mitts all last winter! Filled with green candies and did the embellishment greeting in white gel pen and then just added a stamped THANKS. Voila- and as you said: EASY! She loved it! I think I used a Heidi Swapp package- sort of clamshell- it opened and could be popped back shut, KWIM?

    TYFS this idea, it is literally SO SWEET in the Christmas-sy format!!!!!
