{It's All About the Packaging}

There is nothing more that I love than a pretty package. It makes me feel that the gift I am holding is something special, a gift from the heart and that whatever is under the pretty embellishments and ribbons is as much an emotion of love from the giver as the gift itself.

A couple of weeks ago I entered one of my favoriate bloggers, Danni of Oh, Hello Friend, Lovely Package Exchange. As you can imagine I was over the moon with excitement when I found out about it because this is totally my thing. Basically, it's a pen pal program where you're exchanging a wrapped gift instead of letters. Based on some of the pictures I've seen from last year's exchange, these crafters go all out!! So as I'm waiting to find out who my partner will be (so excited!!!), I thought I would look around for some inspiration. Here's what I found:

{I'm not sure who created this - do you? Anyway I love it - nothing like going to your mailbox and finding a lovely wrapped package...it's the little touches that go so far}
Final Signature

PS. Speaking of packages - I purchased a ring from Oh, Hello Friend's Etsy shop. When the packaging is so well done that you don't want to open it...you know you've done your job. That Danni, I tell ya - so amazing!
My ring!

  1. Wow! I can't believe this packaging. I'm literally taken aback by it. I agree it's all about the packaging. :) You've taught me well. I'll keep these ideas in mind for sure.
