Gift Box

Its wedding season here and that makes me happy as more wedding means more invites that I get to reuse.Did some one say Stingy ?( A rupee saved is rupee earned !)besides its a pain to throw away the beautiful paper .Enough of chattering .As you must have guessed the box is decorated with paper from invitation card.

What else is reused ?
A sweets box and invitation card
The rosettes are made out of  gold and silver chocolate bar packing. The swirls are made of  sequence and pearls used for embroidery .I thought better use them than paper strips but I guess paper swirls would have looked better !

    I agree ...nothing about this is stingy ..its just so inspiring ..
    Keep on reusing ..and hopefully we will all pick up few good things out of it :)
