With the holidays fast approaching, I have some gifts to send out in the mail. Currently I am selling my NYC map ornaments on my Etsy store . This has always been a good seller during this time of year. With my one of a kind ornaments, I like to add a little more uniqueness. So with my easy DIY gift packaging this does the trick!
My blog periodically contains affiliate links meaning that if you make a purchase, I might make a small commission at no extra charge to you. Purchases made through them are greatly appreciated.
During this period a lot of people have come back to more basics and a simpler way of life. Less extras ad more heartfelt items. Gift packaging can be done for an assortment of gifts. The DIY gift packaging alone elevates your gift giving. We are all so used to seeing the amazon packaging that we have forgotten what it’s like to receive a beautifully wrapped package.
You can use household items to do make this DIY gift packaging. I used paper lawn bags,you can also use brown craft paper, bubble sheet, double stick tape, scissors, hole punch, and ribbon. I have included a pattern below on the paper envelope I have chosen to use to ship out these ornaments.
You can easily take any measurement you need and make any size envelope needed. Below I made two 5×6 which one held a single ornament and the other a pair of gloves. The smaller one I made was 3×4 and can easily be made for a piece of jewelry!
How to make a template for packaging
I used a letter size piece of paper that fit my two ornaments perfectly, this is the bigger size envelope. You can use any size you need, depending on your item. Below is a diagram on how to make these easy envelopes, whether you are shipping or just need a package for a gift.
I cut out my template then wrapped the ornaments in bubble wrap for extra protection while shipping. I added my Double Arrow design logo and sent to buyer. So excited that these will be received somewhere in Brooklyn, and adorn someone’s tree for years to come. The buyer ordered two so I am assuming one may be a gift as well.
