We were glad to see that we’re not the only ones that, upon unpackaging our shiny new macbook [2], thought it was such a shame to use such a lovely case just for packaging material [3]. Rather than ditching or storing the quite useful cardboard box, Spring Greening [4] finalist Alison Cromie decided to cover it with fabric and turn it into a case for crafting supplies. We loved her simple act of turning future garbage into a stylish and useful briefcase, and we think that Alison deserves a place in our Spring Greening DIY Design Contest [5]. If you feel the same way then cast your vote [5] for her project today!
