Gift Pack Idea

Henna Designed Colorful Box

As you know about my passion about recycling & Reuse, so you can imagine how much i am in love with making things from trash to today’s post is another recycling,but there is a story behind this colorful creation..
A few weeks back, we friends were enjoying lunch in cafe ,everybody was eating food, I was also enjoying a Chicken Mince fry..but during lunch, an idea blink in my mind when i saw an ordinary Styrofoam lunch box.., suddenly i feel greedy for the box, everybody left their boxes on cafe’s table but i pick my box & said to my friend that i am not hungry, i will eat later at home
the basic purpose was to save the boxi for recycling *(*
well i will not bore you more in the behind the scene story but i think it was interesting to share with you, so you will understand well that How Much Greedy I Am Just For Recycling :)
so why not to share another one cute creation with you..

As I write before that henna was not going well on its slippy surface, so i try to fix the whole design with the help of Mod Podge Sparkle :) Inst it a cool combination..?

Then I fill the box with my stash stuff..markers, pencils, some paints & my favorite refograph art pen!!

    Spectacular and artistic work, I think that this technique could use paint bottles PET and would have a few eye-catching work it.

    well that is the prettiest styrofoam container i’ve ever seen, lol. lovely!

  22. Kim

    July 27, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    I wonder if this would work on a bare wooden box? It is a lovely creation – I just hope the styrofoam holds up.

    Where could I buy the henna supplies?


    July 27, 2011 at 7:46 pm

    Mod Podge Amy:
    its always lovely to read your sweet words!! Thanks for always visiting my blog :)

    Thanks for admiring this, So nice of you..

    Cape corner:
    i m really enjoying while reading this appericiation!! Thanks lovely :)

    Dear it will also work well over a wooden box, this box is temporary but wooden box will be the best!!
    Well henna is easily available in my country Pakistan but i dont know how you can search the supplies in your area!! Sorry..

    So I can happily provide you the henna designs, feel free to contact me for any idea

    Thanks dear for the hosting!!

    The design is basically a henna herb but after its application i simply apply Mod Podge layer over it, so now its permanent, until the box gotta crack..hehe
