It's only September, but artists and crafters have been thinking about Christmas for weeks. Ideas need to be honed into plans. Supplies have to be ordered. Hands have to get to work. Art and handcrafted items take time as well as creativity.
Getting a hand crafted present at the holidays is always a treat. But I think it's even better if the package is festive and pretty. I love to look at gift wrap ideas on Pinterest and in magazines. A pretty box makes the gift all that more special.
So this year I'm trying to improve my gift packaging. It needs to reflect my brand, Desert Dabbler, as well as look festive and fun. Different items require different size boxes, too. I have wildlife paper for the larger sized boxes that hold my wildlife necklaces. But most of my packages are smaller and need a properly sized box. I've been using gold and white boxes.
I bought labels for the tops of the boxes. Then I began adding a pretty orchid bow.
This year I'm thinking of replacing the label with a coyote. What do you think?
