Packaging Details... Gooddog Look Away (unless it came today)

For those of you who care (and really how could you not care inordinately about such stuff... I know it's been hard for you to focus on your work wondering how on Earth I packaged up my giveaway box)...

Instead of filling the box with popcorn I used green tissue paper that had been cut into strips. No, I did not do this for this project... I did happen to have a box full leftover from Easters past when I used this as Easter grass (for some reason I thought regular Easter grass was a chocking hazard for babies... why?... I cannot fathom a reason now). Got some wrinkled tissue paper hanging around (and I know you do since who on Earth can throw that shit out) you could achieve this in no time.

Remember how cutely I was able to package up my Christmas Sugar Cookies (as if you didn't sear their image into your brain)? Well... I was not able to find patterned wax paper in an appropriate (aka not red & white striped candy cane) pattern so I just took some pinking shears to plain white.
It is not as cute but will have to do. It's pretty important to keep the icing off the back of the other cookies when they're stacked or they can glue together during the temperature changes of shipping... completely ruining all the effort you put into the icing.

I packaged up the rice krispie eggs like this...

(please people spare yourselves and do NOT make these) I ate all the leftovers yesterday... could not stop shoveling them into my face. I never thought I liked white chocolate until I started covering things I liked in it... then I realized it's addictive powers.

You already saw the jelly bean carrot...

And the playdough eggs...


But, please, those are both so freaking cute they bear repeating.



And just in case you wondered how *crazy* I am...

I stamped the box to cover up past markings... and... colored them in.

Yeah... that's how I roll.

So adorable! The jelly bean carrot may be my favorite. Where did you get the ideas for this stuff?

I'm going to have to put the cookies out as my favorite. The icing..the shapes..so cute! A VERY close second is the play-doh..the "eggs" with the bit of straw around them is simply adorable!!

My poor kids are getting the Target special...as in whatever I can find at Target and throw in a basket for $10 or less.. We made up for it by baking 5 dozen cookies for 2 easter parties at school (yes, and the 5yr old, 3yr old, AND 1yr old all "helped" so just imagine how long that really took.. :-)

Maybe you should open an Etsy shop and sell gift baskets. You really do seem to have a knack for turning stuff into the cutest things. That's an Easter gift pack that anyone would love and there has to be a market for it - after all people pay $25 or more for stupid baskets with a coffee cup and 2 kinds of coffee, right?

Easter grass is the Debil.

I want the cookies. Don't want to make them, just want to eat them.

I agree with Sandcastle Momma! I think there is a need for some Furious Gift baskets/bags!

You could even sell some of your skirts & other craftiness!



Oh...tried emailing you back. It got sent back. Weird since you JUST emailed me. :P

I will try again in the morning.

Night!

It's so cute!

I like the etsy idea. It could work! And you seem to enjoy it!
