I mentioned yesterday that I'd made a gift for someone from a used Gocco box and today I felt like showing it off.
The fact that Gocco supplies have gone out of production has led me to not just be a hoarder of supplies for future use but also a saver of spent ones. I love the bold yellow boxes that the Gocco bulbs come in and I've been flattening them out and holding on to them for a few months. I am so glad my pack-rat ways paid off when I had the idea to have them turned into spiral bound notebooks!
I think they look pretty slick and cost less than $4 each to bind at the nearby copy shop. I also used the sides of the boxes to make bookmarks and the tab ends as stickers,
Of course I definitely couldn't part with the burned out flashbulbs that die two by two with every edition either. Until I think of something else, I've been storing them in some glass jars on the shelf above my desk. Maybe if I run out of jars I'll string them up on our Christmas tree.
