So rather than forking out the price of an all day bus ticket for ONE BOX, I decided to use something I already had at my disposal. Instead of chucking out a body lotion tub, I peeled off the stickers, washed it out and lined it with tissue paper (which had previously been wrapped around a gift I'd been given) before finishing it off with a big fat bow using ribbon which had been wrapped around some jim jams I'd recently bought.
I'm sure if you're crafty you could do something far more creative, but hey I'm not. My friend thought it was rather clever and now keeps her spare buttons in the pot. Huzzah and hurrah for reusing.
P.S. How was your weekend?
