So I thought it appropriate to post about it today. I have some lovely inspiration for you. First, a lovely little shop selling charming packaging items on Etsy, hooray design shop, is offering a giveaway at oh, hello friend! You really must go over and enter! My favorite from the hooray design shop is the gift tag set.
If you've ordered from my Etsy shop lately, you know that when your padded package arrived from pink street, there was a cute tag announcing your name and address, and that your items inside were wrapped up neatly (or at least I tried really hard) with brown paper, maybe an air mail envelope or some international stamps, and some fun baker's twine. I've been making an effort for the past couple of months, ever since revamping my Etsy shop, to make my packaging as pretty and one-of-a-kind as the jewelry it contains. I still have lots of ideas, and haven't perfected my style or technique, but one of my favorite things now is looking at wrapping, ribbons, twine, envelopes, bags, embellishments, etc, and mentally incorporating them into future pink street packaging.
