Friday Craft, Product Packaging

3 Comments

To prepare for opening my shop, I put some time and thought into how I could package my pretties. I knew I wanted to use recycled materials, and I have a huge stack of file folders from my work that were going to be thrown out.

The idea is that I could trap the necklace and/or bracelet chain inside of the folder, and then tape it closed with pretty washi tape.

I’m pleased with how they’ve turned out, although I want to get some different washi tape options…

I also used some old paint chips for my earrings…

Next packaging project will be my card sets and sewn items.
