The theme for the Mixed Up blog challenge team for July is upcycling. What is upcycling? Basically, it’s reusing something in such a way as to create something else, hopefully better than the original.
I started with a plain kraft gift box and decided to jazz it up with stencils and inks.
This is a very easy and quick way to turn basic gift packaging into something special. All you need is some stencils, distress inks, and a mini blending tool! You just place the stencil, blend the ink and voila! I added some black soot distress ink on the corners and edges just to add a little bit of interest. Photos below.
