Pretty parcels


A very cool shop in town will be stocking my brooches in a few weeks' time (more about that later) and I need to figure out how best to display them, preferably on something that can be hung from a hook. Then Heather reminded me how nice tiny little envelopes are.

So this is my solution so far: a tag/envelope combo. I'm still trying to decide about the ribbon. And what exactly to print on the tags.

Huge thanks to Print and Pattern for a lovely post about my ceramics! And thank you too to Pink Parchment Soaps and Paper Rose Designs for including them in some great treasuries, and to Rainbow Storms for a mention on her blog!

Those little envelopes are great - I love tags with a message from the artist or even a small quote. I think packaging is so important just as imporatant as what is in it Enid

These are GREAT! I love them! They make perfect presents wrapped and all. I think that using a Ebony and Ivory Persham instead of ribbon would beautiful. They have a variety of widths to chose from and the design are simple and great. You can also seal the ends so that it does not frey as the ribbon would.

It works really well making your brooches look very precious.

I love the packaging for the brooches Jesse. It's a great idea how you can hang them for display and then fold them over for purchase. Good luck with the new venture!

I don't think I'd want to wear the brooch. I would put it in a shadow box and on my wall. Such AMAZING packaging. (A very belated thank you for the creative blogger award. I finally got things sorted out on my end. Grrr technical problems.)

these are lovely. designing packaging is so much fun. the little print inside makes it extra special.
what about some kind of raffia or twine?

What lovely containers. I think with flaps on the side you could sell them as tiny gift boxes.
