I also package all of my earrings on a handpainted watercolor tag (I used to use handpainted watercolor paper for all of my business cards too but it took way too long as I expanded). And the result is pretty darn cute I must say.
paper boxes out of cardboard. I didn't have any cardboard so I used an old ceral box. I started making boxes and boxes out of old cereal, pasta, cracker, ect. cardboard boxes, and I realized that this was a really cool way to recycle.
After reading about the going green packaging TrashN2Tees was promoting on their blog, I decided I was going to start a whole new line of packaging, the "Pay it Forward Packaging Line". By using recycled brown paper and recycled cardboard for my designs I will be doing the enviornment a favor, but I am also going to market my line to my customers and ask that when they buy a product from me and recieve it in such packaging, that they recycle as well and reuse it.
Instead of letting the pretty packaging sit on the kitchen counter for a few weeks and then disgarding it, I'm asking them to save/use the stamped and rhinestoned box, tissue paper, ribbons, ect. in order to package a gift to someone else. That's right, its a kind of regifting thats classy and sinless.
