A Barrel of Wishes

Creating gift wrap solutions while recycling is hitting
two birds with one stone. And I'm trying to hit as
many birds as I can!

Today, this is what I'm recycling:

An empty, blah oatmeal container.

Tada! It's now a unique gift box with a cover!

All I did was to wrap the cylinder in felt
(or use decorative paper) and attach
some embroidered "wishes".

Use it to package food gifts like cookies & bars
or even bags of tea or coffee, bottles of jam or
small jars of spices & sea salt.


  1. Claire, you're amazing!
