Up until about two days ago I was a huge fan of the Target animal crackers and alphabet crackers stored in these little plastic bear containers. (Read the ingredients - high fructose corn syrup. Come on Target. Really?) Not only are the "crackers" (let's be real - they are cookies) delicious, but the containers can be used for a ton of things. Recently I used the big bear as a package for a birthday gift. My SIL is a sophomore at Baylor - Baylor Bears - so I thought they bear was quite appropriate. I filled it with some Fall favorites like candies, tea, a yummy candle, etc.
This is a great gift container, free, can be stuffed with a lot and all you have to do is wash it out and remove the stickers.
Using an old Fall inspired tissue box, I cut out new labels and hot glued them to the bear. Once the lid was screwed on tight, I placed the bear, balloons and confetti into a box and shipped the gift on down to Waco for my favorite 20 year old.
What interesting items have you used as packages or gift "boxes?" xo
