Product Packaging - Paloma's Nest
Ready for packaging project #2 of 9? Let’s make custom ribbon!
I’ve owned a creative business for almost a decade now.
One thing I’ve learned: simplicity. is. always. best!
My mission: to create beautiful packaging ideas to inspire you in your creative business, and to send off your products in a way that will make your brand shine bright & really wow your clients.
Let’s dive in…
Project Two: Custom Ribbon
(with a little help from my friends at Paloma's Nest)
1" Cotton Twill Tape Ribbon, Natural
Three (3) Rubber Stamps:
StazOn ink pad
Box of your awesome products
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:
Roll out some twill tape ribbon onto a spot you don't mind getting a little inky.
Stamp all over your ribbon - I liked to space them about 2" apart with the one illustration (the dove) stamped off the edges. Don't worry about getting it perfect - perfect will look boring!
Grab your box full of goods & wrap it up with kraft paper.
Wrap your ribbon around, tie a bow. Done!
That's it! Your packaging is ready to go out and represent your brand!
Some Extra Notes for you, Ambitious Reader of All The Words:
I also tried this ribbon with the logo stamps from last week's project and really loved it! The larger 2" x 2" stamp went off the edges and made a really cool effect that would match all the rest of Catie Miller Ceramics' branding; so don't worry if your logo or brand name sizing doesn't line up exactly with the specs from this project.
One of the best parts of having your illustrations made into separate stamps from your brand name text is how much more you can do: stamp business cards with the image above your brand name, stamp your illustrations all over your kraft paper for packaging similar to my last project, really the possibilities are endless.
You can also switch up your illustration stamps to show off a new collection, new branding, etc.
