What I Love Wednesday – Pretty Packaging

Share this post

This past week I have been in search of the perfect card packaging.  I typically wrap my cards and paper goodies in clear plastic bags or tissue and include a business card and/or promo item.  Next week I am shipping out 100 cards to be included in the October Indie Gift Box.  If you have not heard of this check them out.  You have the opportunity to buy a box each month containing a variety of handmade items.  Each month has a theme but the items are a surprise.  I am so excited to be a part of this and I feel my packaging should be special.  I want my cards to be protected but also to have something extra to make them stand out, maybe to get a couple ooos and ahhhs :)

These are a few that caught my eye on Pinterest this week.

button gift wrapping

Cute button packages from The Paper Package.  This would be great for a set of note cards, or a gift set of cards.


Bitty Bags with pretty twine and a label featured on Everything Etsy.  I could add my own holes and twine and print a logo and name on a sticker.

Cute thank you cards wrapped in twine with a simple tag from  I love how these cards are wrapped in plastic then tied together.  So I get to protect my items and wrap them, love them.

Beautiful winter snow cards wrapped in a simple piece of stretchy cord with a tag. These are sold out but from a great shop on Etsy; Juniper Berry.Love the little extra touch.

Natural looking packaging, so simple and elegant, featured on Go 4 Pro Photos.  I just love this whole look, a piece of this, maybe the distressed paper, would be so pretty.

Not sure what I will do yet, but it will have to happen soon; I am shipping the cards next week!

Do you have a handmade business?  How do you package your items?  Or if you like to buy handmade, what do you like to see?

Thanks for visiting.

Yeah I agree with the plastic, you never know who might get their hands on them!

I like the cards in plastic (bag or something). Kids are always grabbing. That keeps them clean. I think the tie of some sort with personalized tag (which there were lots of variations of) is great.
