Everyone loves a cute package, but let's be honest it isn't the easiest to find. Lately I've had some side projects that have me sending out about 4-5 packages a week and I was tired of how bland they were. So I grabbed my small box of craft supplies out here (internship this summer = 2,000 miles from my craft supplies) and got to work. I tried to pick items you all should have around the house. Enjoy.
- This is the simplest idea, no clue why I hadn't thought of it before. I just stapled the ribbon onto the envelope as close to the edge as possible. then I added adhesive paper for my labels. you could use this concept to add anything: lace, paper, fabric scraps, etc
- If you have scraps of paper laying around, this is for you. I just took paper strips and taped them down with packaging tape. I didn't add the address label yet, so you all could see the concept. You could also use fabric scraps :)
- This idea is what I came up with for my little Etsy shop. I was so tired of the boring looking envelopes, but I didn't want to buy custom labels. I got the stamps at a craft store fairly cheap and I used bright colored inks. I stamped the designs onto adhesive paper. They look so cute when addressed and stuffed with goodies.
So there you have it, three very easy ideas you can use next time you are sending out a package. I love how they can easily be tweaked to whatever supplies you have around, as well as how quick and easy they are.
