Gift and Product Packaging

If you follow me on Pinterest you will know that I love quirky packaging and wrapping.  Even if you aren’t on Pinterest you can check out my ‘Packaging and Wrapping’ board here to get an idea of what I mean.

This Christmas my sister-in-law gave me some handmade goodies for Christmas (hooray – ironically I don’t seem to receive many handmade gifts!)  She gave me jam, biscuits and some spice rubs, and they were all wrapped up in cellophane.  They looked fab.  Inspired, I went out yesterday to buy some cellophane and started wrapping my handmade candles.  Now I know florists have been doing this for years so I am not claiming to have found out anything new, but I was so excited with the results I had to post some pictures.

This is the finished unwrapped candle.  I made these a few days ago using pots that used to contain a Marks and Spencer pudding!   I know the button is a little bit of ‘iMake overkill’ – I’ll replace them with plain wooden buttons later I think.  The candles are scented with a blend of essential oils called Summer Rain:

This is the wrapped version, complete with mini card from Moo:

Here is a wrapped tea cup candle:

    But the tags would be great if you were going to sell them! I think the whole candles are great! Like the M&S pots! But also like the vintage cups and saucers.

    Happy New Year!
