I am in technology and have like 30 iPad boxes, will wrap or spray paint for recycling at Christmas time! Love your ideas. thanks. iPad boxes are sturdy! They would definitely make great gift boxes. Thanks for writing, Mary! Very clever redo for the cables. And I like the idea of the inside-out box when you need to keep original boxes. I’ve used inside-out boxes for gifting before (and even rightside-out when the box printing was cool). I hope the 1 terra drive helps you – media takes a lot of space! Hi Karen. If only boxes and containers were all designed too look good in our homes and not just store shelves. Oh well, it gives us an opportunity to be creative! I like reusing boxes for gifts too. Oh gosh! If it took me a few months to fill up a 160 gigs, I’m sure 1 terra should last me a while. Or I hope so! This is awesome. Helps you keep the box, too…(If you are that person who KEEPS ALLLL their boxes!) Covering the box to look like a book would look great in some settings! p.s. Thanks for your blog and pinterest logs. Love your eye! Hi Sandee! Thanks! I am the type of person who feels guilty for throwing away boxes, especially if the item was really, really expensive! Covering a box to make it look like a book is an excellent idea! That could be really fun! It would also help to blend in if you want to put it on a bookshelf. If we weigh down the box, it could even be used as a bookend…hmmm. I might have to try it and post it! Well, thank you so so much for following my blog and pinterest! And…THANK YOU for taking the time to write! I truly appreciate it! Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
