Amuse the Muse - Jewellery Packaging - with Rebecca of Songbead

Hello everyone! It's the start of a brand new week - and the first Amuse the Muse post of June. June! I'm a little terrified as I have my first craft fair of 2015 on the 28th of this month - The Art Market in the beautiful town of Holmfirth. Am I prepared? Do I have enough any stock? Do I have oodles of time this month to create in a calm and inspiring environment? Heck, no!! Add to this the fact that this time around, I'm in a different section of the market where rather than using tables, we have to create our own stands from scratch - we are highly encouraged to use our imagination! Eek! It's all a little nerve-wracking. In the spirit of getting prepared for this event (and thinking that I may not be alone in starting craft fair season this month), I have decided to have a blitz on packaging this month.  Every time I have a new season of fairs, I try and revisit my packaging and ask, how can I improve this? How can I make it more 'me'? How can I make this more environmentally friendly? 

Who's with me? Leave your suggestions and ideas in the comments below!

Here are some of the things I found to perhaps breathe new life into your jewellery packaging:

And now for the BeadBlogger Links. Have a great week everyone!

I just received my winning item from Mary Harding and I was very impressed with the wrapping and presentation. She really made it special, I really felt like I got something special, which I did, but it felt more like a gift. I don't have any ideas to add but I do really like the thoughts you presented.

Before we became Kydo Jewellery we were widely known as The Silver Lodge our packaging was silver boxes in different sizes and for fairs silver jewellery bags in two sizes we used silver tissue paper to wrap our items prior to putting in box or bag and the boxes were always done up with either purple or white ribbon to send out they looked really nice!

I am a firm believer in packaging and branding. I use kraft pillow boxes with a logo sticker on them with colorful ribbons. For larger items I have a copper box and custom satin ribbon with my key logo and company name. I always tie real ribbon, often matching the contents within. And a tiny copper skeleton key attached. Something they can definitely use again! I quite love packaging orders and usually take far too long to do it. I have stalked those boxes from Indian Bazaar for over a year but the shipping was quite ridiculous and I wanted a custom size (they were willing to do it, but again, the shipping). I would really love to use brighter packaging and now you have made me start to rethink what I have going on! Enjoy the day! Erin
