We have an elderly cat who is eating us out of house & home. He is constantly crying for food. We get through about 6 pouches a day. That's more than 3 boxes a week.
Ergo, we have a lot of cat food boxes in the recycling. Always. So I have begun to appropriate them for my crafting. It started when I needed a small box to display my cards for sale, but it seems their uses are endless.
a handy box for all my adhesives, sticky pads etc.
The exterior is wrapped in my favourite Kraft paper. It takes a long piece to get all the way round, so wrapping paper is best. Inside, I made simple panels using cereal box card & covered them in gingham paper downloaded from Activity Village. Getting the panels to fit is quite time consuming & involves a bit of trial & error, but it does become easier with practise. A simple band of gingham & a co-ordinating label ties it all together.
