With Mumbai’s hot weather, we normally have ice cream in the freezer, all year round. This means we have a lot of popsicle sticks left over that usually got thrown away. This weekend, we tried to make something useful with them. Which lead to these mini crates.
Now, on reading the title, it may seem like we’re a bit odd. Packing gifts in newspaper directly, doesn’t seem all that special (It is actually!
