Packages! Packages!

Hello! Hello! I hope everyone loved the cupcake special! Today well actually yesterday was special day. I got my 10th sale! WOOT! Making small goals is absolutely awesome awesome! So I decided to add extra punches to the packages! Well it took me a while to figure out what to do to make it special! Oh yeah before I forget USPS has a lot of neat things to help you with packaging stuff... for example (this I learned from the etsy forums) you can arrange for them to pick up packages from your home (not sure how this works for apartment buildings but shrugs?) and they also give out free FREE FREE packaging supplies. Don't believe me? Click here at USPS. Which is pretty darn neat!
Well being the darn rebel I am I package all my things in bubble envelopes. No not the ones that you can easily pop and have that satisfying POP! POP! noise from Staples. I'm sure there are cheaper places out there but Staples is so close by and I am lazy. So whoever buys from me I check out their store and profile. Based on that I draw designs on the envelope. For this one, the person loved to travel in an RV so... yeah that's my attempt at drawing a traveling RV. It's kind of not as professional and stupendous as many I've seen before there's a whole flickr (image/blog type) network with some mind blowing packaging ideas here Packaging Flickr.

The pictures are bad because I packaged it at night after my boring night class. I wrap them in tissue paper with a band of origami paper around it. I also include my business card and this little tag since its holiday season and I didn't want to sell the tags. Thought it would be cool.

I loved the positive feedback for the cupcakes and my How - to 's so I'm planning on making more reviews and How - to 's in the near future. So keep an eye out on the left side bar under How - to's!

Until next time... thumbs up ... (-b^^)-b

What a neat idea for the packaging and congrats on your 10th sale. That is wonderful! Thank you for commenting on my blog. I use to send a lot of cards for the wrong reasons. Now every card I write is special and has meaning! Thanks for stopping by.
