DIY Packaging Ideas

Apr 2

A while back I styled some pretty packages for a product shoot for Smock. Today, Nole is featuring the latest letterpress stationery from Smock over at Oh So Beautiful Paper, so I wanted to share the cute little packages I put together. I used kraft bakery boxes, twine, paper doilies, grosgrain ribbon and scraps of fabric I had lying around my house and used our new letterpress hang tags from Smock to finish it off. I also got to make my debut as a hand model in these photos. I think I have a new career, don’t you? These little tags are perfect for gifts, of course, but I personally think they’d make fabulous favor tags. The back sides feature colorful patterned backing and the fronts have pretty blind deboss letterpress motifs. You can check them out on the Smock website.

    1. Nole, you are definitely right – the scraps of fabric would be so pretty for holiday gift wrapping. I think strips of burlap could be super cute, too.

      Thanks, Melissa! I love that one best, too. :-)

      Thank you, Alice! I love pretty packaging so this was a lot of fun.
