Hello there! Ready to check out how creative our design team got with LESSology Challenge #27: Packaging Central? Today's inspiration comes from design team members Kirsty Vittetoe and Yvonne Yam.

Kirsty Vittetoe

I mostly order my crafting supplies online, and they used tons of paper to filled up the gap between the goods so they won't shift around during shipping, I always felt that it is such a waste to throw those paper away, so I collected them thinking that someday they will be put into good used ... here's the pile.


Last week, my daughter asked me to make her a note book, and she wanted one with just plain paper and no lines... now you see why I keep those papers : )

I folded the paper and cut them into the size I wanted, stitched them together into a small booklet, I have 3 booklets in total, and then stitched them all onto a piece of kraft paper


and next is to find a piece of pretty patterned paper for its cover and start decorating it





I think I am going to make more of these since I still have a big pile of papers left : )

Hello...this is Yvonne, here to share with you my project using a sock hanger. :)


It's such a pity to throw away those sock hangers that new socks come in. It makes a great hanger for a tag! :)


I started with a Ranger grungeboard which I coloured with Faber Castell gelatos and layered with some Golden glass bead gel for a glass glitter finish. After that, I applied some Golden fiber paste with a stencil for some texture. And painted that with Daler-Rowney liquid acrylics for shimmer. 


The blooms were cut from old lace. I painted the Blue Fern Studios chipboard with gold paint, then added Golden Gold mica flakes for extra sparkle. 


There you have it. Two great ideas for using your packaging in interesting ways. Come play along with LESSology Challenge #27: Packaging Central. We would love to see your awesome use of packaging. :)
