Packaging 101: Handmade jewelry getting ready for a British school bazaar

1 Nov

These guys are going on a trip to a school bazaar in the region.

And I’m so excited for them…

These are all Karboojeh Handmade Jewelry creations, and tags.

After much research & brainstorming, and many many trials, I came up with these ideas to brand my handmade jewelry. Economical, personalized & relatively quick to whip up.

I didn’t want the look to sound too “finished,” I wanted something handmade-ish, and reflective of the fact all jewelry items are handcrafted.

I didn’t use my official logo for this bazaar on tags… to “un-complicate” things. I just used straightforward business-card-like tags with the URL of this blog and my email address on them.

And this is the outcome. I’m happy!

I will post more details about the bazaar, and the lovely lady (my aunt) who came up with the idea of selling there, as soon as it starts – inshAllah.

    Those tags are so cute! And they fit the handmade theme perfectly =D.
    How did you make them? Send them to a printer’s or so?

      Thanks Aiya :) I was hoping you’d like them.
      No, I printed them using a regular photocopier… then I cut them to size. Maybe I shouldn’t have said they’re “quick” to make. First, I designed an A4 PDF page (on Photoshop) which had two rows of tags. For the earrings I printed the tags on recycled paper. For the necklaces, it’s plain white paper – which I then hot-glued on fabric & burlap, that was previously white-glued on cardboard. Maybe I should post a tutorial! Hmmm…
