If you’ve ever received a Stampin’ Up! shipment via UPS, your box probably included a yard or two of the eco-friendly brown packing paper. Normally I take my packing paper to our local recycling center, but sometimes I save it for a special project.
In this case, not only did I save my paper for a month, but I asked other demonstrators to save paper for me! You see, the Vacation Bible School theme for our church this summer is “Crocodile Dock”, and I thought the packing paper would make great swamp decorations.
Armed with at least 120 yards of brown packing paper (courtesy of Stampin’ Up! boxes), we were able to cover walls, bulletin boards and faux swamp trees for VBS. We also twisted the paper to form some really cool vines that hang from the walls, fishing nets and ceilings.
Check it all out–how many uses for brown packing paper do YOU see here?
Oh, and if you’re in the Champaign, Illinois area, feel free to bring your kids by for VBS this week! We meet in the evenings — 6 to 8 pm, and we would love to have you join us for even 1 night!
