Today I want to talk about packaging. I have been searching for a great way to package my items for a while, and here are some of the inspiration I found on flickr.
This first group belongs to Brandi From Catie's Blue. You can check out more images at her flickr account above. And Brandi just reminded me that she wrote a tutorial on her blog about the first picture, and see her comment on this post for more tips. I love the color combinations, and the best part is I can use up all my cute Xmas wrapping paper and my scrapbooking paper. And the little tags and ribbons just like icing on the cake.
And this one from The Dotted Line is very simple, yet elegant. I love the organic feeling of it, and that wonderful blossom paper just adds a hint of oriental flavor and a little bit excitement to the whole thing. And the tags are simple as well, but fits the whole sytle perfectly.
I also like how malisonian ties this package. Again, simple and elegant at the same time.
This cute paper bag packaging is from Craftapalooza. She got the template from Martha and overprinted it. Smart and very cute. To find out more about it, please read this blog.
This one is also very nice. It's from Daisy Mae Designs. I like the little tag thing, with the shop name and website. Very clean and straight forward.
Last but not least, this is from the fabulous Rachel Sudlow, the owner of my favorite Etsy shop Sudlow. She uses regular jewelry boxes, and seals them with her customized return label she got from Vistaprint. Great idea! And very professional.
That's it for today. I will go ahead order more boxes and start preparing for my first show later this year.
