LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

WRAP IT WITH MOTHER NATURE

We bought some incense during a recent trip in Asia. The incense are stored in a handmade container which is wrapped with leaves and then lacquered.

To make this we recommend recycling toilet paper rolls or kitchen towel rolls. Collect some limp fallen leaves and you are on your way. Different brands of rolls have different diameter and so if you have different brands at home you might not need to make your own cover. Even if you do have to make your own cover, it is easy peasy. Wrap a piece of cardboard around the roll and you have your circumference. Do give it more allowance so that it is loose. You will need the space for the leaves and the lacquer. It is better loose than too tight.

Use some craft glue to wrap the leaves around the roll and you can give it a light lacquer. Use these containers as gift packaging for incense, chopsticks, letters, pens... You can even wrap used tissue boxes with leaves for an uber cool organizer. Let your imagination run.
