Packaging Your Etsy Items (Part 2)

I'm back with another great and inexpensive way to  packaging you Etsy items.

If your selling handmade items your most likely a creative crafty person and want to reflect that in how you package. But you don't have to be a scrapbook expert or a avid sewing to get these great packing styles.

If you sew (like me) your likely to have tons of fabric scraps on hand perfect for this packaging style.

But if you don't sew and you don't want to go off and buy a few yards of fabric then here's a quick and inexpensive way to package using scrapbook paper!

This is best for smaller size items because the paper is only 12" long, but I also taped 2-3 pieces together to get a longer strip.

All you need is some tissue paper, tape, paper cutter, paper stack and your item.

1) Start by wrapping your item in  tissue paper/kraft paper. I use 2 sheet of tissue paper for larger items and one for smaller ones.

Pick two coordinating papers. Cut a 3" for one and a 2" from the other. I used two 12" pieces taped together to get a 23" piece. This is where a paperstack comes in handy. Most of the time you can get these half off for $8-$10 with 48 sheets of paper. Plus most (if not all) coordinate together.

Trim down if necessary and tape into place.

Now just add a thank you circle, sticker or even your business card. I made these thank yous circles with my silhouette.

A great, fun and easy to to package your items. Plus they look great too. :)
