Before I officially open my little Etsy shop (which has been something I've been saying I'm going to do for about a year now. Really sorry about that...) I thought I'd experiment with pretty postage and packaging ideas. I like to get crafty and have fun with ink, gift tags and twine now and again. ;)
My postage and packaging hasn't been perfected yet, but its a nice start. Maybe once you've read this post you'll have some sweet p&p ideas of your own!
1. For my equipment, I gathered a circular rubber stamp, brown wrapping paper (from eBay), gold & black ink (from Hobbycraft), twine (from any garden centre), tape, scissors and a flower stamp (from Hobbycraft)
2. I cut a large piece of brown paper and lay it on a flat surface.Then, using my circular stamp and gold ink, I created a golden polka dot print across the paper. Leave it for about an hour to fully dry before handling it.
3. Once the ink is fully dry, you can wrap your item! I've been practising my wrapping 'technique' (because i'm so messy when it comes to gift wrapping!)
