Project: Post Packet with a twist

Post packets, we all need them at some time or another and this is a brilliant way of personalising your post. If you've got any unpopped bubble wrap (I know, its hard to resist!) then this is a much better way of using it up rather than just throwing it out. Check out the tutorial here.

The instructions are for a 7x5 inch pack but I made mine to fit a C.D. so needed a piece of paper 30x20 cm. The beauty of this project is that it really is up to you what size you make it! I found the standard size scrap booking paper (30x30cm) was a bit squeezy so keep your eye out for bigger cuts of strong paper. Also, keep in mind that you want your precious parcel to reach its destination in one piece so strong paper (wall paper), good glue and decent bubble wrap is essential. Of course, the usual tools of the crafters table, scissors, ruler, pencil, glue and tape are also necessary. Once you've made one you shouldn't need to draw in the lines, in fact, the end product has a much more professional look if there are no lines visible at all, folds alone should see you through.

Big thank you to madeit.com.au/cpercydesigns for suggesting this great tutorial!

Happy folding, sticking and posting!

  5. An awesome idea - the PO mailers can be a bit bland, and you could really personalize the packaging this way.
    Thanks!
    Cheers,
