Drool Worthy Packaging

Sorry- no Found On post from Kathryn today. So, I thought I would roundup some packaging inspirations.

Certainly, we can all agree that packaging is important to any product. Whether its strictly for function or has a whole lot of form, this is especially important in the handmade community. And is often overlooked.

These shops are doing things right, with killer packaging.

1. (very top image) For Me, For You : Brown kraft boxes and bags with a screen-printed logo are a great option for packaging. I love the use of the gold japanese washi tape here as well.

2. PataPri : Creating a simple wrap around for tea towels and other items can make a huge difference and is easy to create on your own with a home printer, your logo, and some heavy cardstock.

3. The Small Object : Something as a simple as a white, flat paper bag with a cute sticker will work in a pinch. Love the scallop detail and product description.

4. MacSoapy : Colorful packaging with bold patterns turns a bar of soap into a beautiful gift for family and friends.

I adore craft paper & use it to wrap my re-purposed cartography and lexicography paper cut heart blocks. then I add some red/white or blue/white bakers twine & a little thank you collage card with a handwritten note. simple & adorable (i think!) {see here for a snap shot: http://www.flickr.com/photos/chrzaszcz/4671083076 }

I agree with you Betsy. I am sucker for anything in a kraft bag.


i love the soaps! i wouldn’t want to ever unwrap them because of their prettiness!! well thought out packaging can go can bring you so far, and it doesn’t take much time at all!


I love pretty packaging. My favorite is the brown paper bag. Anything in brown paper bag is so gorgeous to me. I agree, packaging is very important.
