Repurposed Holiday Gift Box

Hi there! 'Tis this season for gifting. Recently my brother visited New York City and brought back the most delicious macaroons from Bouchon Bakery. After I scarfed the macaroons, I kept the gift box. It was well-constructed and I loved the green and brown colors. It was just begging to be repurposed!

I grabbed the SEI Calling Birds creative pack and got to work. Just by luck, the reverse of the Partridge Tree patterned paper perfectly matched the green accents on the box. I glued it to the top to cover the bakery's logo, then added some die-cuts and border stickers to finish the package.

What's a gift without a card? I whipped up a matching holiday card using the Ladies Dancing patterned paper. Super easy and so festive.

Have you ever repurposed a gift's packaging? Maybe a cookie tin or shirt box? Hopefully today's project inspires you to think, well, outside the box the next time you receive a gift. (Sorry there's no more macaroons left to share!)
