PRETTY PRODUCT PACKAGING PART TWO The Creatiate Blog.png

Hi + welcome to the 2nd segment of a 9-part series of something I am SUPER passionate about: Branding & Packaging!

As I've said before:
I've learned through my 7+ years of small creative business branding that
simplicity. is. always. best!

My mission: to create beautiful packaging ideas to inspire you in your creative business, and to send off your products in a way that will make your brand shine bright & really wow your clients.

So let's get off to the races with project #2: Custom Ribbon!

Project Two: Custom Ribbon

(with a little help from my friends at Paloma's Nest)

Supplies*:

I said these projects would be simple and I promise they are truly simple.
Here are the steps, if you haven't already guessed them.

How To Make:

  1. Roll out some twill tape ribbon onto a spot you don't mind getting a little inky.
  2. Stamp all over your ribbon - I liked to space them about 2" apart
    with the one illustration (the dove) stamped off the edges.
    Don't worry about getting it perfect - perfect will look boring!
  3. Grab your box full of goods & wrap it up with kraft paper.
  4. Wrap your ribbon around, tie a bow + take a bow!

That's it! Your packaging is ready to go out and represent your brand!

Some Extra Notes for you, Ambitious Reader of All The Words:

  • I also tried this ribbon with the logo stamps from last week's project and really loved it! The larger 2" x 2" stamp went off the edges and made a really cool effect that would match all the rest of Catie Miller Ceramics' branding; so don't worry if your logo or brand name sizing doesn't line up exactly with the specs from this project.
  • One of the best parts of having your illustrations made into separate stamps from your brand name text is how much more you can do: stamp business cards with the image above your brand name, stamp your illustrations all over your kraft paper for packaging similar to my last project, really the possibilities are endless.
  • You can also switch up your illustration stamps to show off a new collection, new branding, etc.

farmer's market + small biz farm friends:
