Packing is a great way to add some flair and personality to your orders. Of everything I have ordered on Etsy, I would much rather order again from the crafters who add that something extra to make me feel special.
When you are selling handmade you have to make your products stand out from something that your customer can buy on Amazon or Wal-Mart.
There are so many options to make your packages unique. And it doesn't have to be pricey boxes or bags. HERE are some videos of simple ways to pack your items using things you might have on hand or find at the thrift store.
And how cute are these ideas?
The possibilities go as far as your imagination can reach!
-Try wrapping your product in old music sheets, kid's book pages, or cringled brown paper. Or make your own boxes (see video below) out of whatever fun paper you have on hand.
-Add a cute tag or tie with some ribbon, rafia, or chunky yarn or packaging string.
-Hand stamped paper also makes fantastic gift wrap.
-Keep scraps of ribbon and use them to tie bows or tie tags on your packages.
-If your products are pretty and colorful, pack them in clear bags!
How to make a paper box:
'round here, one of my favorite sights is this:
Neat little packages (a.k.a. green burritos) all wrapped up and ready to be mailed out.
I love them so.
I put a little extra time into wrapping each t-shirt so my customers get a little gift to open when they get their package in the mail.
I also stick a Cantaloupe Corner Sticker on the back of each envelope so my customers know right away that their shirts have arrived!
How do you spiff up your packages?
