All you really need for this is an envelope, paper roll, string and tissue paper but stamps and glitter tape never hurt! Gather your materials :)
Flatten your tp roll. If you're using a paper towel roll, cut it in half! Then flatten, of course.
Fold in half of it making a half circle.
Repeat with the other 3 sides so you've got a cute little pillow box!
Take your item and scrunch some tissue paper around it. I chose mint green as a theme and stuck in a Little Debbie charm :)
Stuff it in your towel roll and close it up.
Take some string, of the same color if you have it, and tie it around the box like a present. This keeps it closed- no glue needed!
If you'd like, nows the time to stamp your box and decorate it how you like. I always give my customers a cute little "thankyou coin" that I hand stamp and cut out of scrap paper!
Slide your box in an envelope that will hold it, as well as anything else you want to send, such as a note or business card, even a receipt! Again, stamping never hurts ;)
Tape it shut and voila! Adorable Eco friendly shipping that should only cost you about $2.50 at the post office! (Just make sure you tape it securely, don't leave space like I left on mine! :) )
