Pretty Packages


Sometimes I like to do something a little extra....



I always try to have nice or quirky packaging, but today I must say that I outdid myself. Maybe it was the rain that forced a delay in my trip to the post office, or the old papermache box that I found, but let's say that my customer is going to get a bit more than she bargained for when she opens up this package!




I went a little crazy decorating the box: vibrant paints, delicious papers, shiny brass brads, soft velvet ribbons. I just couldn't stop. I could probably sell this in my shop, but I wouldn't. It is a little thank you for giving a home to one of my favourite things I have made so far.




Then I had to figure out what to put it in to ship it. The post office doesn't like round things, you see...that is where the old wooden cigar box came in. I figured, no irate carrier could destroy that bad boy. So in the box it went, with a gift card, a magnet, a wing and a prayer. Wrap it in brown paper and it is off....
