My New Handmade Packaging!

After spending entirely too many hours online shopping for the perfect packaging for my jewelry, I gave up and decided to make my own. If you haven't noticed already, I'm a huge fan of anything DIY, and especially when it solves so many problems with such a simple solution.

 I needed something that wouldn't add bulk or weight to affect my shipping prices, or the size of the envelopes I ship my orders in.

 I needed something that wouldn't add too much cost to my product. I didn't want to raise prices to accommodate for packaging that isn't optional, but at the same time I wanted to reinforce my branding and make every purchase feel like a special gift!

 I didn't want to have to buy in huge quantities to get the lowest prices because not only is it a huge chunk of change up front, but I don't have a lot of space left to store any more boxes of stuff! (You betta belieeeeve I already have a whole room in the house dedicated to jewelry and arts & crafts supplies!)

 I wanted a "one size fits all" box of some kind, which of course doesn't really exist...unless you can make one any size you need at the drop of a hat!

 I wanted something that didn't add to the inventory I have to keep track of, as far as re-ordering and trying to guess how many I need without overbuying.

These handmade pillow boxes are the perfect fix for all these things, and I   L    V  E  the way they turned out!
