A Little 3 R project

You know....Recycle, Reuse, Re-purpose....yea me!

I received this perfect box in the mail, it held my Jenni Bowlin Studio club package, it's sized for 12" x 12" sheets.
Perfect for flat storage of my 12" x 12' designer and specialty papers/card stock. I decided to use some scraps and cover just the ends that would show while on my shelves. 
The solid color is Stampin' Up card stock, and the patterned paper is SU! designer paper. The letters are 'Thickers' stickers. I ran out of 's' so I had to make my SU! from another letter. I don't remember which one now.
Make sure to carefully open your boxes if you want to try this re-cycle. Only rip one of the sides open, as above.  Actually I guess you could also re-tape one side. **forehead slap**
 Here you can see that the opened box is pulled 'out' and the lid pulled out/flipped down, revealing the content. This is a great way to keep dust and sun from the papers and keeps the shelves a little tidier. I would show more of the shelves, but they are quite the mess right now. I'll take pictures when they are reorganized.

Thanks so much for the visit, hope I inspired you!

Happy crafting!
