Make This From This: boxes and cartons

Before your boxes and containers make it into the recycling bin, put them to use in your play room, closets and kitchen.

Boxes are great for:
  1. Play food
  2. Giant building blocks
  3. Gift boxes
  4. Shadow box art (paint the box then adhere artwork, punch a circle in the back and hang)
  5. Home made puzzles
Containers are great for:
  1. Play food
  2. Stacking cups
  3. Craft or drawer storage
  4. Popsicle molds
  5. Instrument shakers
  6. Herb planters

I'm having so much fun thinking of oodles of ways to use food packaging in other ways, I think it may become a whole tip topic one month! How do you repurpose your boxes and cartons?
