Creative packaging ideas! You’ve put too much thought into your craft to just toss it in a box before you sell it. Make the package as creative as the gift!
Many of us who craft regularly either sell or gift our products. You’ve put too much time, effort, and thought into your craft to just toss it in a box before you sell it or give it to a friend. Why not package it in a way that is as creative and thoughtful as the gift itself? Here are a few ideas I’ve used in the past, using labels from my sponsor, OnlineLabels.com.
I once worked on a fundraiser where we sold notecards. We wanted to “jazz up” the boxes while keeping a tight budget. The solution? Raffia! Inexpensive and easy to buy in bulk, just tie a few strands around a box for instant “oomph”. Finish it off with a custom sticker on the box. I used these True Red Labels.
Think outside the box.
Square is expected. Try a round container for something that is aesthetically pleasing and easy to hold. Wrap it with a piece of ribbon or scrap fabric, and label it with a round sticker on the lid. I used THIS gold foil label.
Everyone loves a treat.
Favor boxes are fun to receive and easy to purchase in bulk. Personalize them with a custom label (I used these AWESOME clear labels!) If you want to add a little flair, add some twine or lace to the handle.
Bags are forever.
Muslin or burlap bags are too nice to throw away. Stamp your name on the bag so that everytime it is handled the user will be forced to think of you. 🙂 Add a pretty tag using weatherproof round labels.
Tag, you’re it.
Create pretty, shaped tags to hold smaller items, like these pendants. Die cut a shape, like these tickets, add a sticker label, and have an instantly adorable tag. How cute is this pink heart label?
Wrap it up in something pretty.
Glassine envelopes add a touch of elegance to a gift or product. Seal it with a custom sticker that has your logo or initial on it. I used these cute weatherproof star labels.
Do the unexpected.
Deliver your product in something that is not normally used for packaging, like a coffee cup. Purchase in bulk at restaurant supply stores, and easily customize them with your own label. I used the gold label that I like so much!
Shimmer and shine.
Foil has replaced glitter as a no-mess alternative for adding sleek shine to packaging. Finish your product off with a lovely foiled label, like I did with these bath salts. You can find the tutorial HERE.
