Current Obsession: Chinese Medicine Packaging

Wednesday, July 19, 2006

Chinatown is probably my favorite area of Singapore – it houses my favorite boutique, a great fabric market, and a whole lot of local shops that are always good for poking around in. Lately, an emporium stocking traditional Chinese medicine products in bright graphic packaging has caught my eye, and I decided to go in and buy some of my favorites. (It was really kind of funny for me to pick out a handful of random products without having any idea what they're for. The owner was like, "Um, can I help you find something in particular?" I just declined; I wasn't sure how he'd take it if I said I was looking for the prettiest boxes.)

I've been trying to think of a cool way to display them or even craft them into something. Thoughts?

for the boxes that are paper, i'd cut 'em up and decoupage them onto a wide picture frame. been meaning to do this, actually!
