A Fresh New Look

Things are a changing over here at Barely Measured. New hand stamped packaging, bright tissue paper and clever wrappings will leave you feeling like you just received a very special gift, well- a gift you paid for anyhow... I've been brimming with ideas on how to decorate my 10x10 booth at Art Star and ventured into Paper Source on Friday to get some inspiration for signage. I was definitely inspired, so inspired in fact,  I decided my packaging and tags needed an overhaul. I'm really pleased with how everything turned out even though I think I got ink everywhere!

thank yous:

care cards:
I used to sew little "envelopes" for each set of care cards. Was really cute but took a LOT of time!
I also made cute accordion -style care cards and would sometimes stitch paper or cloth to the ends..yeah.
My new envelopes are made from recycled paper and are hand stamped. The care cards are double printed on colorful card stock. Care instructions on one side and my pinky swear on the other :)

fyi- it takes about 3 hours to hand stamp a bird and "care" "cards" on  200 envelopes

pretty turquoise tissue paper and new labels- thank you ULINE! 
Also, got some boxes that better fit my bigger bags- new shipping (cheaper) rates might apply- more on that later!

Ooo la la how I LOVE Anna Maria Horner prints!
