I often save small appliance and gadget boxes for gifting.
The Kindle’s packaging reminds me of a spartan jewellery box and is just the thing for presenting flat items like stationery, slim paperbacks, skinny scarves or necklaces/chain bracelets.
Before beginning the alteration of the box, remove the ragged-looking perforated sealing flaps (I am not a neat opener of things) and the inner tray.
Cover all visible branding and any areas that may have been damaged with washi/decorative duct tape or pieces of scrapbooking paper.
The inner slot meant for the Kindle’s information booklets becomes a nifty place to pop in a personal note or greeting card.
If you don’t want your gift to peek out through that front gap, enclose it in tissue paper before ribboning up the box.
If you manage to collect enough empty Kindle boxes from friends/family/quizzical strangers, brighten them up and use for home/office organisation. They’re perfect for storing loose recipe cards, receipts, mail, business cards, notes and got-to-get-to-lists.
