As I opened and spilled yet another package of crafty goodness, I thought I'd take a moment to extend a plea to the packagers of said products to please consider a more viable alternative.
I just acquired a few packages of wooden embellishments. I don't mean to call out any one company, because several of them do this; these photos are only to serve as one example.
This is a package of wooden stars:
I now immediately open the packages and dump the contents into one of my collection of empty SU embellishment containers:
*ahem*, I have stacked them here:
Now, back to the original packaging ... How about at least a re-sealable package? Some embellishments come in packaging that has a cover on the plastic part so it can be re-closed (if that's a word). Or maybe include a small zip-top bag? Or heck, make it a plastic container to start with and put the cardboard inside the package. I know it's plastic, but I have to use other containers once I open yours anyway, so sell me yours.
Meanwhile I'll keep using my SU containers.
So what do you guys do with packaging like this? Inquiring minds want to know.
Thanks for stopping by!
