Behind the Scenes:Packaging

I don't know about you but I love seeing how other handmade business owners do things - a behind the scenes look.  Heres a look at Ellarye Boutique's new packaging. Hope this inspires you whether you are a shop owner or just looking to make the next birthday gift you wrap a litte *extra special.
And because I love you since you are cool enough to read my blog, I'm going to help you out a little more and tell you where I buy all of my packaging supplies. (((get excited!)))

I wrap my product(s) in white tissue paper.
(This order was for a few tiny rosette clips.)
I buy my tissue paper here

 wrap the items in a perfect tissue paper square and
wrap it with natural jute.
I buy my jute here

Next I stamp the date on a notebook paper heart.
I do this because I take alot of pride in shipping when I say I am going to ship.
It's just another way of being honest with your customers!
I love this cool date stamp.
I got it here

Attach the heart with some washi tape.
I buy my washi tape here
I stamp on the back of one of my business cards and write my name.
I buy my business cards here and I've always been really happy with them.
I bought the stamp for 1.00 at the local Michael's craft store.

I always add a few extra business cards in with my orders.
Next I stick the order in one of these clear cello bags.
in the past I have used these

I add a circle sticker with my logo on it
I got them here

Lastly I include a thank you note,
stick it in a poly mailer (I buy mine here ) and ship!
