My favourite reason for reusing pretty packaging or printed materials for repackaging is that the nice prints make the (repurposing) transition effortless to achieve.
Take this tissue box for instance. With its classic silhouettes designs (love the swing) I hoped to highlight them and decided to crop them as gift tags.
- Tissue box with nice print
- Hole puncher
- Dot sticker
Cut out different shapes with the desired print encased. Make faux eyelets by sticking dot stickers in place before hole punching.
