New jewelry packaging..just in time for fall!

Carol Dekle-Foss
I've grown tired of my boring old jewelry packaging you see below and have been working on revamping it for the fall season. I wanted something more simple and professional looking, yet unique, without breaking the bank.

I fell in love with the simplicity of belly bands, so for this post I'm sharing what I came up with using Minc Reactive foil and this cheap laminator I purchased at Walmart. 

Later down the road, I might try Rio Grande's personalized hot foiling, but for now I like the belly band look. I enjoy the creative process of making my own packaging, plus it's fun using different foil and paper combos.

Here's how I made the band..

I used cardstock from The Luxury Stack and printed my logo using a laser printer. I then ran it through the laminator using Minc Rose Gold foil. It can be tricky getting the foil to stick. I had a hard time at first, but with a few adjustments to the density of the image, and running it through the laminator a few times, I got it to work. It's not perfect, but that's okay, it's handmade right?? There is a Minc machine that is supposed to work better, but the laminator works fine when you have your image really dark and run it through more than once.

I also made an earring card insert to match.

These earrings are made with beautiful handmade porcelain beads by MaryAnn Carroll of Artisan Beads Plus. They are on their way to their forever home!

Also, my husband and I have agreed we are having a 20% off fall sale through the end of September! Just use coupon code save20. You can find all our porcelain goodies on our website here.

Thank you for reading!
