Cookies are commonplace around the holidays. And rather than toss those cookie boxes in the recycling bin, why not get crafty and transform them into cute upcycled gifts?

Dreamed up by Lakshmi of the crafting blog Made by Lakshmi, this fun cell phone caddy is perfect for the tech lover in your life and leaves a minimal footprint on the planet.

After constantly misplacing her phone, Lakshmi thought of the common saying “a place for everything and everything in its place,” which inspired her to create a permanent home for her favorite gadget.

Since the cookie box is covered with paper, this project is also super-versatile. Get creative and choose brightly colored or patterned paper — whatever suits your recipients best.

For step-by-step instructions, head to Made by Lakshmi.
