Not everyone has a great budget to buy packaging for our jewelry, but at the same time our work needs respect and a lot of love ;-}, so we have to be creative and think of a way we can have a great looking packaging that it is going to cost us less.
What I did was to find a jewelry box on my budget and make some little additions that anyone with a computer and printer can do.
I bought kraft paper and glue dots at a craft store and VOILA!!! I had my additions on hand.
I measured the size of my boxes to create a cover and an Artist Bio (very important) for the inside of the box.
In the computer I created a file for the cover and the inside in the different sizes of my boxes. Printed them on black ink or toner.
After the printing, you cut them and burn the edges. Here’s a video I found in YouTube that is very helpful for learning how to burn paper edges.
After this process then you go ahead and put the cover and insert with glue dots and you are done!!!!
Note: If your boxes are a soft color (white, cream or pastels) then you have to use darker paper instead of the kraft.

what a great presentation! I am getting inspired to do something for my jewelry collection also.
I loooove your work esp the bronze clay…it is metallicious.
keep it up! thanks for sharing the idea!
what is “your”mantra?
What a great idea for “branding” your packaging. You have really got me thinking about how I can spruce up my own packaging while still keeping it within my eco-friendly policies.
Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for your comments.

Thanks so much for the idea of putting your bio inside the lid of the jewelry box! It never occurred to me to do such a thing. I have been buying simple white craft boxes. I stamp one corner with a pretty scroll/flower kind of stamp in a nice blue ink. Then I use glue dots to attach a business card to the outside of the box. What a terrific way to hook the buyer by using a bio on the inside of the packaging.
So clever! Thank you for sharing.
