Introducing Decorated Package of The Month - January 2010

After 15 years as a photo stylist, tweaking and trimming, fitting and fussing, I have become a detail diva. Working on sets where anything facing the camera needed to be perfect (the same could not be said for the back of the set). Taking the lowly box or tried and true envelope and dressing it up seemed a natural extension of my design philosophy.

I love the challenge and the creativity that can go into a well-dressed package. I love giving them and getting them is fun too. Fancy wrapping is, well, fancy, but give me the old school kraft paper and some Sharpies and I'm in heaven. It's a simple unexpected gesture that will put a smile on the face of the recipient.

With this in mind, we are starting feature called Decorated Package of the Month. We will spotlight one cool creative package made from a variety of materials, both traditional and non-traditional.

So without further ado, we present you the Decorated Package of The Month for January 2010:

A lovely message for the new year, this package was created and photographed by Jasmin, from
The White Acorn. This is what she had to say:

"I am a photographer who loves re-uses shipping boxes as final packaging to avoid environmental waste; also as an economical option for packaging. I love your tape to dress up recycled packaging. I began using your tape only for orders that I ship but lately I have found myself using it a lot more, sometimes as a functional tape and sometimes just for "pretty". Thanks again for the great product."
Feel free to send us your creations as well. We would love to see them and post the best ones.

  1. Beautiful packaging!
    I just ordered some hard to decide which ones! I typically roll my artwork orders and tissue wrap them and then secure them with a black and white damask printed ribbon, before shipping them out in a mailing tube. I look forward to trying the tapes that I have just ordered.

    I really like this lace one! I wonder if it is too late to add on to my order?

    Blessings & Aloha!
