Holiday Packaging - Sweet Paul Magazine



After eating up every page of the current issue of Sweet Paul Mag, I was motivated to make every gift I give more personal this year-whether it be handmade wrapping paper, handmade card, etc.
These were a few of my favorite examples of the perfect Christmas packaging. I think everything is better with kraft paper:) If you have ordered from my shop, you probably noticed how your item came in kraft tissue and kraft bag:) Hope these examples inspire you to avoid the standard gift bag this year!

Also, lots of great things going on here on IHOD right now so here is the round up!:
1). The Handmade Holiday Gift Guide will launch next week (to help you avoid Black Friday madness;)  So if you had an item from your shop to submit, now is the time to do so!
2.) A few more fabulous Handmade Giveaways will be taking place in the next few weeks. Don't miss out on the current Stocking Giveaway from RikRak Studio!
3.) I have just a few spots left for December Advertising! Email me if you would like the info packet.

And that's a WRAP! ;) :) :D
