DIY Packaging Ideas
easy and fun ways to customizeOur GreenKraft clamshells are easy and fun to customize. Here are a couple “Do It Yourself” tips and suggestions. Have fun and be creative!
Raffia ribbon is a natural ribbon that looks great, comes in a wide range of colors, and is affordable. Use raffia to wrap your clamshell like a gift box.
To secure your clamshells closed, add a thin film of glue (super glue works great!) around the lip and hold closed for a couple seconds. Viola!
Everybody knows that you can use tissue paper inside a box, but you can also use it as a pretty wrap-around band. Fold the tissue paper into long strips and wrap around the box. Secure with a printed label. Lots of colorful tissue paper options too!
Do you need to pad your product or want a natural cotton insert for your jewelry box? Visit your local fabric store and check out the cotton batting options.
Traditional hand stamped images and lettering looks great. The GreenKraft material soaks up ink well and results in a handmade, letterpress look and feel.
If you haven’t already discovered glue dots — you should! Round dots of glue that come in a range of sizes and tack levels. Unlimited number of uses. Visit your local office supply or crafts store.
Japanese Printed Tape
Try decorating with the beautiful and colorful printed Japanese washi masking tape (www.cutetape.com).
Rubber bands come in a huge range of colors and designs. Custom printing is also available. For an easy and secure closer, just snap on a rubber band.
Get artistic! Paint directly onto our GreenKraft clamshells. The flat cover surface is a perfect mini-canvas.
