Handmade rubber stamps.

I've changed folks . . . I'm all different now, I hope you still like me.
Once upon a time I would've boshed an Etsy parcel together with a mile of sellotape then spent a half hour scratching my back up against a tree. These days I'm finding myself getting all joyous over sending out uniformly neat and tidy parcels. It's, frankly, a little disconcerting but I'd like to share with you my most recent packaging triumph because I'm dead pleased with it.

I came up with this simple little design and carved it from special pink stamp making rubber which only costs about a million pounds a square centimetre (that's an exaggeration but it is a little bit pricey)

Then I mounted the carvings onto nice bits of wood, but not before I stamped the back to make them look all professional.

And there you go! Special 'Hand-made' parcel paper.

Makes all my post looked damned fine.
Another reason to buy something in the shop! I've got a few new products for that little outlet coming soon too - more to wrap, very pleasing.

  2. Oh such pretty packaging, I'm liking the new you!

  3. May that be the fish you sent to me? T'was a delightful experience unwrapping that little fellow (now proudly adorning my mantle)

  4. Phewf! You folks are good. So glad you like your fish Kate! I have one on my mantle at the moment too.

  5. very very nice!

  6. Bee-yoo-dee-full!
    I wonder if this will catch on as an alternative to those love/hate style hand tattoos?

  7. Yeah! Apart from you'd have 'hand' written on one of your hands and that wouldn't be so cool.
