Sunday Sunray News: My first ever Etsy sale!

Hello sisters! This week I received my first ever Etsy sale! How exciting!!! So I thought I would share a little peek at how I packed up the parcel to make it extra lovely, and what you can expect if you order some sweet things from my Etsy shop too!

Packaging essentials:

  • Paper bags – preferably the sweet-shop pink or purple stripe variety. I found a great website to buy paper packaging in bulk.
  • Paper confetti – I stamped these little bits using a tiny holly stamp, from some festive paper inside this month’s Mollie Makes magazine.
  • Washi tape – at this time of year, only Christmas themed will do. I got these ones from Hobby Craft.
  • Cute stickers – I have a large collection of stickers! I actually found some great quality Christmas designs in Lidl this year.
  • Thank you note – I used the same paper from Mollie Makes, and added a handwritten note with my hand carved logo stamp.
  • Business card – an essential to promote yourself. I’m trying out a local company to get mine printed.
  • Box or envelope – to put all your lovely goodies in and keep them safe! I especially like these boxes which fit perfectly through letter boxes.

Do you love receiving post? Are you a stationary addict like me?! If you also run a small business, what are your packaging essentials? Let me know in the comments or on social media!

 

In case you missed them, here’s a quick round-up of my latest blog posts…

Coming up on the blog this Tuesday will be episode four of Playtime, mainly filled with some current tracks I’ve pinched from Radio 6 Music’s playlist. Then on Friday it’s time to say goodbye to November with a little look at my most loved moments from the month.

Until then, have a productive start to your week! Of course I will be continuing my preparations for Sunray Sister’s first ever market stall, here in Bristol. Lots of firsts for me!

 

Peace and love,
