One more post about my Craft Show (I think I’m secretly nostalgic about that crazy day – hahaha!) When thinking about how to package my products, I wanted something that was a walking advertisement of my brand first and foremost. Secondly, it had to be simple, clean-looking, hip and different. I didn’t want a typical handle paper bag with a logo slapped on it. Most importantly, how to do this economically….? And this is what I came up with: a resealable cellophane bag with a handle (3M ScotchPad Carry Handle – I searched for this far and wide and finally found a vendor online) that attached to it, so that the product inside would show. And for the final touch, a sticker of my logo on the front. 🙂 Here’s what it looked like. It was one of my favorite things that day!



The back side:


It looks like a little clear handbag, doesn’t it?

    Hey Susan!

    I find I LOVE reading about all the thought you put into your show, and how best to display your products while still keeping an eye on cost. Your posts always make me smile somehow! I guess knowing you, it just makes me feel good hearing how excited you are doing something you enjoy. This is just one of your many God-given talents…and it is a pleasure reading about how you express it! Already looking forward to the next installment….

    Ooh! Cute packaging idea! Did you have big enough cellophane bags for bigger items too? I like that you could see the finished product since all your patterns are so bright and colorful. 🙂

      Thanks Charissa! That was absolutely the idea!! 🙂 I had one sized bag in the cello to fit most of my items. But for the pillows and multiple purchases that were too bulky, I used regular paper bags to accommdate their size. Maybe I’ll get the bigger sized cello bags for my next show in december!
