THE TWELVE DAYS OF HOLIDAY PACKAGES NO.2

On to Package No.2 of The Twelve Days of Holiday Packages! Two of my favorite things in the world are food and packaging. So it is probably no surprise that one of my favorite things to do is peruse the aisles of our local restaurant supply store for packaging inspiration. You can find so many things useful for wrapping gifts like food containers, waxed paper, and random food packaging products. I discovered the eco clamshell food containers years ago (and even used to sell them in my online shop) and love to use them to package sweet treats as well as regular gifts. They have a nice texture and are available in white or natural colors as well as a variety of sizes and shapes. If you don't have a restaurant supply store nearby also check out baking supply stores or online (here or here).

This is a simple packaging product that has an organic and minimal aesthetic with the textured food container, kraft gift tag, natural twine, and clear embossed label. I already mentioned my love of Dymo label makers and this is a perfect example of how you can use it to create beautiful packages.

THE TWELVE DAYS OF HOLIDAY PACKAGES

I adore packaging gifts and since it is officially the month of gift-giving I thought I would share some gift wrapping ideas and projects. The Twelve Days of Holiday Packages will provide you with inspiration to create your own handmade packages. I will also be sharing some of my favorite sources for packaging supplies. Stay tuned for the first packaging project tomorrow. In the meantime see more of my packaging projects here.
