  1. Hi there. I love your ideas. Do you know what I could make from left over foam packaging from fridges, tv’s, mixers etc. They are bulky and difficult to throw out as there is not enough space in the collection bin. Thanks. Astrid.

    • Sharon says:

      Hi Astrid, The foam packaging is a molded foam and quite different from genuine STYROFOAM Brand Foam. The packaging foam has different properties and will not work the same way as STYROFOAM Brand Foam. I’ve not really crafted with the packaging foam, and I don’t have any experience to share with you. Maybe some other readers will — I’m sure there are many others who are looking for creative ideas to do with the packaging foam. Thanks for stopping in. Sharon
