december packaging inspiration - ‘tis the season for festive wrapping

Using our Paper Shop packaging, the new Packaging Accessories: Hand Lettered Edition, and some details collected from craft stores and our own backyard, we’ve put together a holiday inspiration board that makes your art even more special. See below for details:

1. Kraft box, bookmark, linen and twine from Michael’s, rosemary herbs, peppermint candy cane.

2. Charcoal wrapping paper, gift tag, silver ribbon from Target, blue ribbon from Michael’s.

3. White box,business card from the Tres Chic Marketing Suite, white ribbon, linen, berry with twig and silver snowflake all from Michael’s.

TIP: Ask for tree trimmings at Christmas tree lots and use them to decorate your packages. Discarded branches usually go in the trash, so you’ll probably get to take some home for free!
