Parcels

I have some parcels ready to post. Kendalee and Anairam each won an LP origami box! Packing these for posting was a challenge, so I have partially unfolded them and wrapped them flat with instructions as to how to re-complete! Here the envelopes are in the early morning light - ready to go!Why the set-up?
Because I have recently seen and been inspired by the work of the architects and designers TAF - Who’s 'aim is to make ordinary life less ordinary through subtle but effective changes in how products and architecture appear and function. A recurrent departure point in TAF projects is that everyday objects by their very commonness can be made uncommon'
So I decided to give the little parcels a quick creative send-off!

I just ♥ the idea that they need to be re-assembled - so the proud new owners will also be part of the creativity.
Your pic could easily feature in a magazine! Totally UNcommon.
(Hope Durbs weather ok - at 8:30, the temp in my kitchen was 8 deg this morn, 6 degrees on the stoep)

These boxes are so beautiful and the way you arranged them too.

Yippeeee!! How exciting, thank you Denise! Not entirely sure I'd want to live in a world that looks like loads of parcels but I do LOVE parcels... I actually like your picture better than the other two, by far!

I am SO looking forward to receiving my box - as for the design pics you have below - I absolutely love the idea of living with a series of boxes/packages - just think how amazing it would be if you could open your sofa - and store stuff inside - heaven for me with my piles and piles of books, magazines and stuff standing around. At least your box will take care of some of it!

I love the work of TAF so clever yet so simple
