Recycle your pastry boxes!



The quintessential Parisian pastry shop Ladurée (located on the Champs-Elysées and on the rue Royale) sells its exquisite 'macarons' in rainbow-colored boxes that I save to keep my sewing kit, some aspirin, and those ugly, thick cables that otherwise would get all tangled up on my desk...

Ah, if only I had pastry boxes from Ladurée, I would never throw them out. How pretty.

Great idea...they are just too pretty to toss out! Very eco-chic.

Good enough reason to eat all those delicacies, just to have the boxes! Lovely colors and patterns.
