Quick Crafty Tip-Recycled Packaging

Hi, friends. I’m back today with another Quick Crafty Tip. If you’re new to my blog (welcome!), be sure to check out previous Quick Crafty Tips HERE and scroll down.

Today’s tip is all about recycling packaging…

I’ve been saving all of the packaging that my stamps and dies come in to reuse when I watercolor. It makes a great palette when mixing colors or simply adding water to ink to create watercolor. I like that the insert is white so it give you a true color and when I’m finished I toss it out for easy clean up. I have a drawer full of these and I reach for them often. 
Another way I recycle my stamp/die packaging is to cut up the plastic and use it for shaker card windows. It works great. 
I hope you give this Quick Crafty Tip a try. 
Thanks so much for visiting and have a great day.

    I keep all of mine too Heather! I use them for ink smooshing but don't normally leave the inserts in… didn't think of doing that so that I can use them as a palette. I have a square white tile I often use for watercolouring, but I like the idea of recycling and I have TONS of these packagings!
