Ideas!

Do you have a pile of used bubbler mailers in your closet? I do and that's how I came up with this idea how to make them useful and pretty.

1. Find some beautiful wallpaper (I used vintage wallpaper from my archives)
2. Get suitable adhensive (I used Rubber Cement, it's strong and wont leave any wrinkles)
3. Get or make some nice tags if you like (I used my tags with birdie prints)

How to: Measure and cut a piece of wallpaper to fit the mailer cover. Adhend it on your mailer. Add a tag if you wish. Tag gives a neat look and helps a mailman to read the recipient's address. Send away and smile!

Oh, another idea. I updated a white cardstock ringbox by adding a scrap featuring a red rose on the top. A nice print or your own drawing could work. Or a piece of wallpaper!

Tässä oiva idea kuinka kaunistaa käytetyt kuplamuovikuoret: etsi sievää tapettia, sopivaa liimaa (käytin Rubber Cementiä koska se on vahvaa eikä jätä ryppyjä) ja mieleisiä lappusia osoitetarraksi. Mittaa ja leikkaa sopiva pala tapettia, kiinnitä, lähetä ja hymyile!

Toinen idea. Somistin myös vanhan valkoisen sormusboxini liimaamalla kanteen vanhan kiiltokuvan. Nätti printti tai oma piirroksesi voisi toimia. Tai pala tapettia!
