Paper florists all over the world will inevitably run into the same problem: what to do with all of those crepe paper scraps? You paid for that lovely crepe, and throwing it out feels wrong. But you’re swimming in the scraps, and your home can’t take anymore leftover crepe crammed into nooks and crannies.
I faced this same problem early on as a paper florist. Dealing with scraps is actually how The Posey Box got its start! While lamenting to a friend about all of the crepe bits I didn’t want to throw out, the idea formed to box the scraps and sell them as mystery boxes. Those first ten boxes sold out so quickly! From there, it was a hop, skip, and a jump to coupling boxes of crepe with tutorials and officially starting The Posey Box.
While The Posey Box features new supplies, those little crepe scraps still accumulate like dust bunnies under a couch. What should you do with them? Here are some of my favorite ideas.
