Parting ways with pretty packaging that accompanies perfume bottles is always a difficult thing to do. As is throwing away quirky tissue paper (we all have a collection that we hope to frame one day, right?).
Upcycling old candle jars is as close to the Creative Gods that we have ever been.
Their instagram page @camera60studio with over 24K followers preaches the beauty of up-cycling (and has given us some serious lockdown inspiration).
Bastiani and Rivituso have re-created many classic bag designs, including the Chanel 2.55 double flap bag (with Classica chain) using Ikea paper and plastic shopping bags.
Looking just as classy as the original design, the classic Ikea blue shade adds a layer of quirky chic (meaning we need to add it to our collection ASAP).
If you wanted to test your bag-making skills, they have a template on their website for their Oreo Mini Saddle bag. While we may not have the patience or skill required, we definitely have the Oreo packaging ready…
Considering we are all probably using a lot of plastic while working (and simply living) at home, we can’t help but wish to transform our endless take-away pizza boxes, ASOS packages, biscuit wrappings and coffee packets into bags we can debut when the world re-opens.
Watch this space.
Just watch the professionals at @camera60studio instagram.
How creative have you been these past few months?
