How I package my keepsakes
I don't know about you, but I love beautiful packaging. I think there is something so special about unwrapping something pretty, and it also builds anticipation and excitement about the possibilities of what could be inside.
I think it also adds that little element of speciality from having something handmade too.
You can easily buy something from the high street and it will come in bog standard packaging for practicality and even some of the more expensive shops just pop it into a carrier bag, which we now have to pay for in many cases. Some shops do offer a gift wrapping service, which does make a difference, but it often tends to be smaller, independent shops that do this.
The beauty of handmade is that something is often made especially for you. As makers we have put so much love and care into making the item, that it goes without saying that we don't want the experience to just be the item itself, but the thrill and joy as you peel the wrapping back.
I was lucky enough to receive a beautiful needlecase from Hen's Teeth, you can see my blog post about this here, but as well as the beautiful needlecase was the experience of opening the little parcel, peeling back layers to reveal the beautiful treasure inside.
So I have been having a little play around with my packaging and this is the end result. I love the simplicity of it and the 'vintageness' (if this is not a real word it should be) of it.
I hope that if you choose to have a keepsake made by Bunty's Basket Keepsakes, that you will enjoy the experience of opening your parcel as much as I have had fun making and wrapping it.
Love and blessings
