Day 3: Keep your stash from turning into trash.

Who's got a lot of these laying around?

I bet we all do! If not empty, at least quite a few that are nearly empty. I've always thought that there could be a good use for them. And there is.. I've used them for sending small primas or other small embellies for swaps. You can use them to store and organize brads, buttons, etc. However, you can do something even more fun with them. How about you make a mini album with them?!

Start out by taking the "paper" part of the packaging out and tracing it on printed paper. To save paper, try using double sided paper. Cut it out.

Then decorate both sides of all of your sheets of paper, and put them all in their respective packages.


Once they are all in, put them in order. Use eyelets to attach them, and finish it off by tying ribbon through the eyelets.

The inside
