Shades Of Words

DIY Jewelery Boxes


I love recycling stuff, a habit which can be quite annoying for others as I find it hard to throw away junk. I am always sure that junk can be re-purposed into something else.

Take for instance, these body butter boxes from Body Shop. Pretty & Colorful!

Once I was through with the body butter ( which by the way was fabulous) , I cleaned them thoroughly with soap and warm water till the smell and the greasiness was gone. After that with a bit of sticker magic ( both the tape and the stick – ons) , I turned them into this (image below – click on picture to magnify). Just line these with tissues and keep your jewelery in this!

Before talking about who we are, we’d like to tell you a bit about how and why Shades of Words came into being. It all started with the idea of “A place where we could share with likeminded people about things we enjoy. From books to music to movies to travel; Shades of Words was to be a place about the best of our experiences” We thought about why should anyone read us? The answer was that whatever we review would be a mix of our experience of the thing along with interesting and useful information about it. So in case you are reading us regularly or even checking us out once in a while then we have succeeded in our efforts someway somewhere. Who are we? Known as Kapil Sood and Vipula Gupta, we thought of Shades of Words on one fine Sunday afternoon. Tired of writing interesting RFP’s and project documentation; we decided to give this a shot. Yes! We work in Indian IT industry. Cupid struck us while were innocently slogging together on the highly intricate job of formatting and beautifying documents! And since then, we have been working together to establish Shades of Words as a place that we can claim as ours. (Because buying a house is still years away!) What else? Kapil also writes some blogs which you can read here and here.

  2. thanks…not that awesome though..something pretty basic..

  3. This look v pretty 🙂 Your creativity is coming out isn’t it. I like your header as well. I’m opting to throw them all out though to avoid clutter.

  4. @Zoya – Thanks ! I did throw a bunch of them..but I hate to see so much plastic go in the environment…so I thought atleast I will re-use some. Make sure when you throw urs – you throw in the “plastic” recycle category

  5. Brilliant upcycle Vipula…those tubs really are much too good to toss out 🙂
