St. Patrick Day Packaging Ideas: Part Two

Pin It Wowie, it's been one heck of a start to the work week. We have three grand kids staying with us until Wednesday. Mommy and Daddy are in the UP (upper peninsula of MI) on a snow mobile outing. NeeNee (that would be me) and Poppy (that would be my honey-man) have been delegated babysitting duties. We love that job, however, two kids have been sick in the middle of the night. requiring the "little green machine" to clean up the mess. The sickness has cut into my sleep time and work time. Oh well, it is what it is. I'm certain many of you have been there.

Even with the all the sickness, I managed to put together a couple of Saint Patrick Day packaging ideas. What else can you do at 2 AM in the morning when nursing sick kids? Hope you find something useful.

We have two new boxes at GoPlanetEarth. One is a window Kraft window box (recycled) that houses two soaps. It won't fit every soap from the Mold Market line, but it's a fairly generic size at 6 1/2 x 3 7/8 x 1 1/4" deep.  The other box is a white 3 1/2 x 3 1/2" box with a clear acetate lid. Both boxes are easy to assemble.

There are some really neat printable Saint Patrick Day papers at Blooming Homestead. I used one of the designs to cover the white box and then folded other papers accordion style and cut into strips. The strips were inserted into the box to help fill the void and add color. It also keeps the soap from sliding around.

Use double sided tape when wrapping the box.

Use ribbon, cord and tags to add finishing touches to the boxes. The Mold Market Shamrock #022, Shamrock #227 and Celtic Flower will fit inside the 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" white box. I poured two Mold Market Retro Bath Bar soaps for the Kraft box.
