This week, someone bought two of my mini albums and I was so excited to start shipping them! Ofcourse packaging is just as important as the items itself, so I decided to make use of some of my vintage stamps and craft paper to give the items the wrapping they deserved! I started of cutting a big piece of craft paper and stamping them with Tim Holtz and other stamps. I wrapped the albums up and tied them off with a string, a vintage 7Gypsies label and brass charms. I hope the customer likes it! How do you wrap your gifts? Do you take a lot of time wrapping them nicely?
I am leaving my job next week & I am very sorry to say goodbye to one of my co-workers. She is a very creative, fun-loving & caring girl and I wanted to surprise her. So I decided I’d give her the new M.I.A. album (Matangi), a Happinezz book (“I give you power”) & a siwak (natural toothbrush).
She was very happy about the presents! Since she is interested in Arabic culture and habits, I decided to wrap the presents up in Pepin Papers Arabesque gift wrapping paper (which you can read more about here) and embossed a simple craft sachet with an Arabic stamp. The labels read “For people who think” & “There is no creativity without freedom”.
