LESSology E Book and A Vintage Moose Munch Project


A few months ago, I got an e-mail from Yvonne Yam (you may know her as the Head Honcho over at LESSology) asking me to participate in an e-book she is sharing with their readers. It had to be related to gift wrapping just in time for the holidays.

Here is a link to the super cool e-book if you would like to check it out! Full of Cool ideas with a Recycling Twist!

I decided to START with something in the holiday spirit and then make it over to be a gift box.

As you can see, I geared up for the big project with some ice coffee.




And, it's a great time for spray paint, seeing how it's still summer! A great time to work on presents!

Just a quick spray with some cream colored paint so the red & the green won't show through.


Not only is the container recycled, I also used vintage music paper, a re purposed handle from my bathroom vanity that has been painted with a green patina, some vintage cloth on my lid, vintage lace, and also an old advertisement from a magazine!









Of course, all the pretty flowers were new...as is the lacy beads sneaking out from under them!


The inside got a little bit of spray and some mist as well.
And one last photo of my box sitting pretty and ready for a nice present. Perhaps I will make a little vintage Christmas tag to pull it all together and they can remove it later!
