about throwing your packages away! I love a clever packaging concept and those wiley scrapbook manufacturers really know how to grab my attention with cute and (believe it or not) useable goodness just in the packaging, never mind the product itself. One such example is the ever lovely line-up from Ormolu. Ormolu products, in my humble opinion, are simple and gorgeous and maybe, just maybe, part of their appeal is how they are packaged. Case in point:
I know exactly what you are thinking. Okay, I don't really but I know what I was thinking when I flipped this package over and that was, 'how sweet is that?' So sweet! Most of the packaging has a little banner of loveliness perfect for using to embellish a scrapbook layout. Nice. Here is a little peak of my banner in action on a layout:
Does it not look like it was absolutely designed to be used? I think it does. And, here is a look at my completed layout, sweet little banner and all. Oh, and, just as an aside, I used an actual tag from inside the lovely package as well and the rest of my supplies are from the Studio Calico June kit!
I know the photo is dark but the sweet little tag just pops off of the page which is just what I was hoping it would do!
Anyway, I encourage you to look (really look) at the lovely packaging before you dig in to the goodies inside. You just might find a wee gem that otherwise would have been tossed into the bin and really, where is the fun in that?
