well, i thought i would do a post on packaging for the oh, hello friend shop. it's quite simple really. the elements you need are some basic notions + office supplies that you may have around your house. seam binding, baker's twine, envelopes, business card, and extras like a button or sticker.
so i like including extra little promotion items with my orders. i have a little bookplate sticker that i designed that goes in every envelope. and a small 1inch "you are loved" button that also is included with the orders. i get my business cards printed at overnightprints.com or vistaprint.com. i can't remember where i got the stickers printed but if you're interested, i can find out where.
items get packaged in this coin envelope and tied with bakers twine. little note is written on the air mail envelope.
everything goes inside!
envelope gets wrapped with seam binding. button is attached.
then lastly i wrap it up with some brown kraft paper (i reuse the brown packing paper from companies that send yards and yards of it to protect one tiny dvd set or something.)
and it is finished off with some cute japanese deco tape!
