Hi + welcome to the beginning of a 9-part series of something I am SUPER passionate about: Branding & Packaging!

I’ve owned a creative business for almost a decade now.
One thing I’ve learned:
simplicity. is. always. best!

Simple, bold branding & packaging says:

“My work speaks for itself!”

So I’ve teamed up with 9 awesome creatives. In this series, I’ll share beautiful packaging ideas to inspire you so you can send off your beautiful work in a way that will make your brand shine bright & really wow your clients.

So without further ado! Let’s dive in…


Project One: Patterned Wrap

(with a little help from my friend, Catie Miller Ceramics)

Supplies:


I said these projects would be simple and I promise they are truly simple.
Here are the steps, if you haven't already guessed them.

How To Make:

  1. Stamp all over the kraft paper with your illustration stamp.
    Don't worry about getting it perfect - perfect will look boring!

  2. Wait a few moments for it to dry and then cut, tape, wrap it up.

  3. Cut cardstock into a 3" square & stamp with your logo stamp.

  4. Punch holes on either side of the logo & thread the twine through the back

  5. Tie on the bottom or to one side of your box

That's it! Your packaging is ready to wow: who said fast can't be fabulous?

Some Extra Notes for you, Super-Thorough Reader:

  • The logo-stamped tag is also gorgeous alone on a kraft-wrapped box. You can even use double-sided tape and skip the twine (but I mean, don't you kind of want an excuse to buy #allthetwine?)

  • Any size doodle will do, but 1' x 1" is a great size if you are wrapping up small products; the box I used in this project is a 4" x 4", for reference.

  • Have an iPad with Procreate? That is an awesome way to draw your own custom stamp!

  • Bonus points if you integrate your URL into your 2" x 2" logo stamp, like Catie did for her brand. Your customers will want to come back for more!
