I blogged about them a while back and have since then taken note of the endless creative ideas and variety of uses (even if you’re not getting married!) around blogland. Boy-oh-boy, do I have a list for you, my dears!  From decorating boxes, packaging  and invites — inspiration abounds. Here is 1 of 4 installments.  Enjoy!
