Recycled Packaging ~ Mini Art Journal Cover

This was a packaging I received on the post with something inside. And as I have a big problem with too much waste on the planet, plus I don’t see the point of buying expensive stuff just to pay for the brand… I guess that, in fact, I am not much of a consumerist. Or I am just a rebel against the big corporations and refuse to play their game. Or… I am just me.

Anyway, I used this packaging to use it as storage for my ‘The Natural Path’ art journal and with this I call this journal done because I messed up and mixed themes that were for the other journal and vice-versa… The age, the age! Joking, it’s not the age…

On that note, do you remember when I introduced myself as a hoarder? Well, let me walk you through my mind, just for a second… More than that and you would go crazy!

Okay, so first I have this packaging from Mother’s Day flowers. Clean, not too wrinkled, brown paper with a cute blue stripe, clear plastic. Like, a big sheet of it. I am assuming this plastic is non-toxic and will use it, someday, in a craft project so it doesn’t end up in the landfill site.

Then I received something I bought online and as I put it away I clear see a cover for a mini album, come on! You have to agree it’s just perfect, the only thing I need is to cover it with cute paper, other than that all work is already done for me. Cut, scored and banished.

First, the flowers packaging meets the other packaging for a first layer, otherwise the second one would look like… Cardboard.

And for now, it’s all I have for this one. It’s ready for the next layers and for the inside.

This one will also end up as an art journal storage.

The great thing about these little packagings, A5 size, is that they don’t even take too much space to store and they are ready to decorate.
