Everyday Favorite Supplies by guest : Suann


I’m always trolling my local office supply or craft store looking for simple, everyday products to incorporate in my packaging and/or every day life. I thought I’d share some of my everyday favorites and the sources. I think there’s so much you can do with these little goodies - a simple muslin bag or baker’s twine goes a long way in making a pretty package that much more special.

1. I love glassine bags and use them all the time from organizing to sending a letter
2 & 12. I keep full sheets of label paper around all the time and cut them down for all sorts of use
3. White baker's twine*
4. Mini clothespins*
5. Custom rubber stamps
6. Everyone's favorite Japanese masking tape
7. Cotton muslin bags
8. Muji square paperclips
9. Flat brown bags you can run through your printer
10. Red beading string*
11. Simple kraft tags

* available at most craft stores

This is great! But, you forgot to tell us about number 12. And a tidbit, the glassine envelopes are MUCH cheaper from Stamp collecting supply companies. You can get thousands of them in different sizes for less than $10.

Happy packaging!

Miss Cupcake -- thanks for the glassine tip! As for #12 -- thanks for pointing that out. Its actually kraft label paper cut down and to make those little corners I just take a regular hole punch and do half little punches.

Thanks, everyone, for the kind words!
