At long last I have finished my packaging design. It's taken so long because I wanted to try and get my business cards made for me but I haven't been able to find a printers that can do what I want (problems with inkjet, lazer and thickness of cardstock).
Anyway, it is ever so slightly time consuming but completely worth it in my opinion. I hope it makes recieving a package from me an extra special treat.
First of all I use recycled kraft boxes and line the lid with an image of 1970s floral wallpaper (top image). I then hook the item onto a card stamped with my logo and tie cream ribbon around it (i'm afraid the ribbon in the picture is white as i'm waiting for supplies).
I then place the box, along with a business and thankyou card into a canvas bag made from vintage curtain fabric.
Pull the drawstring and voila, popped into a jiffy bag and a pretty package is on it's way to you.
I hope you like it, I really wanted to present my jewellery in a luxurious and special way that reflected my work and wasn't too wasteful. You can re-use everything except the thankyou card as it will have my 'not so great' handwriting on it.
