first sale

First Sale!

Yesterday I sent out my first package and I have to admit I was pretty excited to have gotten a sale already. I wanted to make the package cute for the new owner of the lovely skeleton key necklace so I added a few small touches. I created a wooden tag which was pinned to an orange patterned ribbon, I placed the necklace into the orange envelope then tied it with hemp twine, then it all went (inluding my business card that I designed myself) into the brown handmade kraft bag. After that I wrapped it with a pretty light seafoam green tissue paper and tied it with yarn. I love packaging! Dont you?
