    Has anyone ever tried to re-use Bramble Berry's gray foam packs that they ship FOs/EOs in? I want to send some stain glass butterflies to my daughter in Maui and thought they would work well if I can get the foam to form around the butterflies. Thoughts?

    I could be wrong on this, but I think they start with a liquid foam that grows/solidifies around the bottles. I think expanding insulation foam would be similar.

    If you can’t figure it out with the B.B. stuff maybe you can use the insulating stuff to build forms yourself

    Zany, I bet if you contact BB they would tell you if there is a way to reuse them.

    I did! :) Here's the answer I got:
    So I took a rubber mallet to the packs and created spaces, in a manner of speaking. I think it will ship well. Those foam packs are pretty thick and substantial.
    Hmmm. Interesting thought. I bet that would work. Thanks for the suggestion. I like the way you think.
