I’m a huge fan of good packaging. When I really get started on the great fabric project and open my Etsy shop, I want everything I send out* to be so beautifully packaged that the recipient feels they’re getting a present in the post.
Which was just how I felt this morning, after taking delivery of a parcel containing something I’d ordered for the baby from The Round Window.
When I’d opened up the brown box, this is what I found inside:
Stunning, isn’t it? That gorgeous cheerful yellow paper, the baker’s string tied around it, the little acorn note…
The parcel itself was just like a lovely present. I almost didn’t want to open it up it looked so beautiful.
The cheery little acorn (the motif from her online shop) had a hand-written note on the back, thanking me for the order.
And when I unwrapped the twine and turned the parcel over, there was even a matching acorn sticker, in place of sellotape.
Packaging just doesn’t get any better than this, does it? In all honesty, I’m not sure that even birthday or Christmas presents I’ve been given have been wrapped as beautifully! (Apologies to anyone whose ever given me a present and is reading this…)
I feel completely inspired to try and produce something as attractive as this for my own packaging when the times comes to actually start selling some stuff in my own shop.
Oh, and the icing on the cake? This was what was inside. A little stained glass egg man, that I’m going to hang in the window of the sproglet’s room.
Beyond amazing, no?
(Apologies for all the superlatives in this post. In my defence, it’s not every day something as nice as this arrives at your door…)
*I might be making a big assumption here that I’ll get any orders at all, ha ha.
- It’s hardly in the same league, but I made some of my own gift boxes for Christmas presents last year. Take a look at my free template and tutorial if you’re inclined to do the same.
