As I started to get more requests for finished buddies, I started to think about the packaging for them. I wanted something handmade and cute, this is what I came up with. =)
Pillow boxes for crochet hats.
Rectangular boxes for big buddies.
Cube boxes inspired by tea boxes for the smaller buddies.
All were handmade by me using corrugated cardboard! =D
The heart and star charms were also handmade by me using polymer clay, but I started to notice they took up a lot of time to make and polish and that's where the idea to use buttons came up. I have a thing for big and bright buttons but I never use them for anything so this looked like the perfect opportunity to give them use! It's also a great opportunity to use small bits of yarn. ; )
I really love the finished packages and the contrast between the natural color of the cardboard and the color of the ornaments! =)
What do you think? Would you like to see these arrive at your door?
