Packaging Off

First off, I want to apologize in not posting for so long. I've been so busy with my new apprenticeship job and just not had time to upload anything.

So I've been selling a couple of item on my Etsy shop (I desperately need to put more items up in my Etsy shop now!) and I quite liked packaging them up and sending them off on their ways to my customers. Here's some pictures of the process I go through to send a package off your way.

Firstly I like to wrap the item up in some tissue paper (Although I need to get some more tissue paper!) and then I get some raffia and tie it around.

I think doing this makes it look like a cute little present or gift for the buyer. Plus I like doing the nice little touches.

Bubble wrapping is a must, I like my parcels to it-stand nuclear bombs (touch wood no nuclear bombs). I think that I have put the time and effort into making my items, I don't want them to end up getting ruined whilst in transit to the customer.

I finish it off by doing a hand written message, just simply saying thank you and that it may need a slight iron after being folded up in the parcel. I also like to give them a 10% discount code to use in my shop in their next purchase (which I've smudged out so that you cheeky readers can't use the code until you've already bought something haha!) 

I sincerely hope that my parcels do make it to you and that you enjoy what I have done :)
