i'm getting ready to ship out a print order today
(have i mentioned how much i LOVE prints?!)
and i thought i'd share how i choose to package some of my products!
i make my own packaging (and if i can do it - anyone can.)
which makes it SUPER affordable to have interesting packaging without breaking the bank.
there are three 'parts' to the way i choose to present clients with their prints:
the burlap 'slip cover,' the muslin wrap around their prints, and a handwritten note!
i have a soft spot in my heart for texture. colors can get my heart all aflutter too,
but textures... they get me every time.
i love the rougher burlap paired with lace (which i found in my grandmother's basement -
thanks grandmama!), it gives it a more delicate feel. then the note with twine
holding it together and the wrinkled craft paper... gah!
the stitching is a labor of love
well, not really, it only takes me a few minutes with a sewing maching,
but it's so worth it! i paired a lighter thread with the burlap because
i didn't want it to blend in. i wanted to SEE the stitching :)
a side note concerning this AWESOME CHEST
i found it at a thrift store and i am enamored with it :)
here it is! all ready to go :)
choosing prints from your session is a BIG DEAL.
they're art to go in your home!
and i know my clients mull over which ones they want very carefully
so when they receive them, it should be an adventure
and packaging is part of that!!
and just like i promised - here's another preview of something that will be on the new website!!
