In preparation... creative packaging

Ok, so while I'm waiting for my artwork to arrive back from the printshop, there's lots more to do...

One of them things is packaging material. When sending cards and prints through the post I do need to make sure they arrive in tip top order. And above all, it needs to look nice! When researching which materials to use I'm paying extra attention to sustainability. I like it to be as green as possible and recycle where I can. I just like to do my own little bit to make the world just a tiny bit better.

Lots to consider though... since I'm just starting my Etsy shop I haven't got loads of money to spend (and the green stuff is somehow more expensive!). Better resort to creative thinking. I've had a big stack of old books in my bookcase for a while, ready to be taken to the charity shop. Never got round to actually take them so why not use them!?!

So here it is. Lovely, recycled bookpage sleeves for sending my greetingcards in!
