Posted by Graphic 45 09/18/2018 92 Comment(s) Home Decor,#G45Tips,


Hello, G45ers!

 Today we have a great #G45Tip all about saving all those boxes and packaging you receive from online purchases and turning them into something beautiful and useful.  This tip comes from our Brand Ambassador, Yulia Kuznetsova.  Yulia has used our Washi Tape and Fairie Dust paper collection to create this beautiful storage container.  But first we have our Weekly Blog Contest to announce, and you are going to love the prize, a Club G45 - Vol 9 kit!  
 

 

Weekly Blog Contest

Just leave a comment here on the blog, Instagram, and/or Facebook to be entered to win! Each comment from Monday to Thursday at 11:59 pm PST will count as an entry. This week’s prize package is a Club G45 - Vol 9 Kit, a $50+ value.  The Winner will be announced on the blog Friday, September 21st.



 

Fairie Dust - DIY Stamp Storage Box

By Yulia Kuznetsova


 

G45Tip: Use a box or packaging from around the house to create your own crafty storage containers.  Here Yulia has used an old make-up box to create a stunning Stamp Organizer Box.   "I relieved myself of the task and did not begin to do the box from scratch. I took the usual postal craft with a box in which the courier brought cosmetics and decorated its corners with tape from Graphic45." ~Yulia

 

See full post here…
 

 

We want to thank you for stopping by the blog today, and to Yulia for sharing this brilliant storage container.  We hope we have inspired you to repurpose some old box or knick-knack and turn it into a treasure.  Be sure to share your projects with us on our Graphic 45 - Offical Community Page on Facebook.  

 

Happy Papercrafting!

Yulia did a gorgeous job upcycling and making it so pretty!Oh wow. I haven't even been able to see Graphic 45 paper in person. None of my local stores have it. I've heard the quality is exceptional. I think I would need to gently hug it before putting it to good use and making my first journal, unless it seemed to scream to make something else with it. The pictures are so pretty, I could frame the pages and hang them up! Thank you so much for this opportunity and for making such gorgeous products! ❤️ #Graphic45
