The Who's Who of Scrapbooking

Using Packaging in Your Artwork


Some scrapbook supply packaging is just way too nice to throw out, don’t you agree? Think of those little tins that Prima has their flowers packaged in, or Queen & Co’s little cosmetic-inspired containers for their products. There are lots of creative things you can make with packaging. Here are a few ideas:

Kirsty Wiseman shows a great idea she had for using the packaging from Love, Elsie. You’d never guess that this mini book was made from it! (One photo is top left). Take a look here for more photos and a mini tutorial.karawardbloom-box.jpg

Kara Ward used the box packaging from Prima flowers to create this beautiful window box display item (at right). You can also see the flower bouquet that Kara made with the products here and here.

We would love to see what you have done with packaging. If you have a project you’d like to share, please feel free to put up a link in the comments.

    Hi Angie,

    I am a Prima addict and I love their flowers as much as I do the packaging it comes with. To date, I still have to throw a single Prima container away as I can come up with so many ways and means of turning them to gifts! The recent one I did though wasn’t just a gift but a candy “jar” I made for my dad for Father’s Day. I stuffed it with colorful mints (my theme was: Cool Dad!) and made a “matching” dotted label with Chatterbox and a few coordinated embellies. Who said Prima can’t be for men? LOL.

    The picture is posted in the Prima Gallery:

    The to-do article of the “bottle” with the matching card is posted in our website:

    Am waiting for someone to call a Prima CONTAINER challenge 😉

    Hi, I have a great useful project made with scrap packaging.

    You know the Making Memories Foam stamps clear holders with the handles? The ones that seem so neat but just try to get your stamp set back into it after ya use it? LOLOL

    Well, it’s a perfect notecard or greeting card holder:
