There are a few things I get kind of silly over- stationery, cute hand-bags, dessert treats and…pretty little containers!! I mean the simple act of adding ribbon and tags to gussy up my favor boxes was one of the most fun memories from my wedding planning- cheesy right? So needless to say, I am pretty excited about today’s links roundup for DIY packaging.

  9. Did you ever see that episode of Barbie where the whole town runs out of glitter? (I have a 2 year old so that is pretty much what I watch these days :p) Anyway, I hope that never actually happens because a little sparkle is always a good thing! These glitter top favor boxes from Smitten On Paper via Green Wedding Shoes put a smile on my face.
  10. If you want to add some glitz in another way, do check out this Art Deco inspired project on 100 Layer Cake from Tulle Box Designs.
