I'm Board

I reuse the larger white packing boxes to create bead sample boards by cutting large 10x8-inch pieces and affixing bead samples to the paperboard with stickpins, U-Pins or cut wire pieces. I also keep the item sticker label next to the bead samples with prices and mount the paperboards to the pages of a large materials scrapbook. This makes finding beads for custom order jewelry so quick and easy! The paperboards and U-pins are also a great way to keep hemp macramé projects stationary while I work on them.

Drawing A Blank

I reuse the non-printed sticker portion of the packing list by cutting and writing on it to make my own identification labels for things. Everything gets used!

Stick Around

I reuse the item stickers that come on the bags by peeling them off and placing in a notebook. I write the price on them so I know how much each item costs. Reordering is easy with this saved item description.

NOTE: Nancy, we make those stickers easy to peel off for just that reason. What a great way to stay organized!


Plastic Fantastic

I reuse the 6x10 storage bags that items come packaged in by peeling off the item sticker and placing customer's items in them to ship them.

Paper Jam

I reuse the crumpled paper, known as dunnage, by ironing it flat and putting it in the paper bin for my grandkids to color on or writing a grocery list on. It also makes great drawer liner and stuffing material when packing and mailing packages.

Tissue Issue

I reuse the teal tissue that comes packaged in my orders to stuff gift bags and boxes.

Boxed In

I use the boxes that my orders come packaged in to resend packages and store things in.
