When shipping personal packages, I always like to make them festive. One of my favorite ways to do this is with paper doilies. I usually get mine at the Dollar Tree, and I use them for the address labels and as decorative touches.
Using circle doilies as labels are fun because you can write your return address in an arc around the top edge of the doily for a super unique presentation.
You'll notice that my boxes are drenched in packing tape. It's really important to cover your entire doily with tape to make sure none of the intricate details get snagged in transit.
To cover ugly labels or old bar codes on my recycled boxes, I like to use scraps of leftover wrapping paper, which can add another pop of color. This box definitely looks homemade!
Loaded up in the car and ready to go to post!
Do you have any tips for making holiday packages festive?
