I am by no means an expert at packaging, but ever since opening Gallymogger Oddities, I have been working on the presentation of the items I sell. I get so excited when I receive something that has been beautifully packaged, and I really appreciate the extra step the sender takes, so I wanted to make my packages a little extra special. Here is a little tutorial/fyi about what I use and how I package my items.
I have a few “must-haves” for packaging including:
For this post, I am going to use some vintage children’s books from the shop. I had some gorgeous thank you cards printed from the amazing folks at MOO. For the front, I used patterns from the fantastic Repro Depot book. I purchased both the folk and flora books, and they are a wonderful investment. Highly recommended if you use patterns.
I also ordered rectangular labels and include them as a fun freebie or just a little added advertising.
I’m a huge sucker for baker’s twine and kraft paper, so I like to incorporate those in the packaging. Unfortunately, I just ran out of kraft paper, but I like the way the tissue paper looks, and you can see the books underneath!
Well, there you have it! Let me know what you use for packaging, I’m always looking for new ideas!
