Pendant Packaging

One of my favourite things about making crafts and selling them is coming up with packaging! This fall I got asked by a few of my consignment shops to give them a few different items so I figured I'd see how my glass pendant necklaces would do. I knew I'd have to come up with some sort of card to put them on since I wasn't about to send away my jewelry tree with them:

Sure it worked great on my craft show display, but if they were going to beLink sold in a shop they need to be able to stand alone and, of coarse, be linked to me with my url. Paper punch and brown paper to the rescue! Check out what I came up with:

I figured the doily punch I have is a little too fancy and detailed for the simplicity of my illustrations and I wanted a bit more pizazz than just rounded corners. Luckily it just so happens that I picked up a perfect corner and border punch set back in May in Oregon! Hooray! Then I just had to work out a little computer spacing and throw my website on the back:

Not too shabby if I do say so myself. Take a look at a few of the necklaces on their cards:

I think it does the packaging job well and am quite pleased with how they turned out! What do you think? Do you ever dabble in packaging?


  1. Stunning! And no, no packaging for me. I'm only a fan.

  2. They look super cute in real life and online!

  3. I have been looking for a way to display, and keep my necklaces from getting tangled, in transit as well as on display. I guess using some sort of card is the best way. These are great! I don't have any computer or machine help, so I have been looking at buying some. But maybe I could try to make them myself? Thanks for sharing!

    1. You're very welcome Michelle! Packaging is always a tricky thing to figure out but once you find something that works its very satisfying! Good luck!
