I love finding creative ways to recycle plastic or glass containers. It’s like a weird obsession I have. With berry season in full swing, I’ve been hanging on to the little plastic containers they come in, not quite sure what we could do with them. As I was rinsing a few of our containers the other day, I thought “these would make the cutest gift boxes for something small.” So I came up with a fun DIY gift wrapping idea using beautiful earrings from local boutique, Perspicasity.
Berry container, snippet of foliage, ribbon, scissors, gift tag and a cutting from sheet moss.
- Place your sheet moss over the inside of your berry container and bend it to sort of create a crease. Then cut along that crease to the proper size and place it inside your container.
- Next place your gift item on top of the moss.
- Close your box carefully then wrap with ribbon and your snippet of green. Your gift tag can slide under the ribbon : )
I love how you can actually see your pretty gift. And there’s no measuring, wrapping, or taping paper! Oh and I’m pretty sure I picked a weed from our yard for the foliage. Did someone mention a giveaway? Why, yes we did!
One winner will receive a lovely pair of Perspicasity earrings of their choice. And yes, they will arrive in our cute little package! The choices are:
3. Mod with sparkles
4. Shimmering shells
HOW TO ENTER:
Tell us which pair is you would like. But first, tell us what is the one accessory you were forbidden to wear growing up. I’m sure the children of the 80′s will have some doozies, as we had horrifying fashion options. My forbidden accessory was dangling earrings! Ha ha, to this day I cannot get myself to wear them.
Happy Friday, friends!!
