The first project I submitted was a baby girl 6-pack gift carrier. About a month later, Nicole told me that the publishers stated there were not enough items related to baby boys and would I mind creating another one (in 2 days!)
I thrive on challenges and work pretty well under pressure, and of course I didn't want to pass up the chance to get my entry in the book! :)
Well, it paid off - my Baby Boy 6-Pack made the cut for the 2007 publication!
I used decorative papers including paintable embossed wallpaper, gingham ribbon, pompoms, and rubber stamps of a baby footprint and handprint to "paint" imprints on the container.
Inside the 6-pack I placed a teddy bear, a onesie, wash cloths, a baby bottle, teething ring and large decorative diaper pins.
Just another way to upcycle those 6-pack containers. But WAIT! What about those Starbucks 4-packs?
Don't forget, the month of May is Inspiration Emporium's packaging challenge. Stop by our blog and join in the fun to win $50 in Emporium dollars! The challenge started this past Friday and will end on June 5th at midnight. We all have "throw away" packaging so what are you waiting for - upcycle or recycle!
