Kidrobot blind box toys make great gifts for the holidays. Buuuuuut as soon as the hidden secret toy is unwrapped the packaging is basically trash. I thought it would be a fun idea to add to the mystery of a box of goodies and turn the box into something people might keep and reuse. I found that Boulevard Beer 6pack boxes were quite sturdy and just the right size to put a couple of art cans, shirts and small paintings in. Painting them up was a synch and it became a fun “upcycling” project for the winter. It also felt good to paint load em up with goodies for friends and family for the holidays. Below are some examples of the different boxes plus I was glad I could capture a couple of the unboxing videos on Instagram.
I’ll be making these throughout the year off and on so keep an eye out for some holiday versions such as Valentines Day, MLK day and Easter etc.
