craft fair season


Amuse the Muse – Jewellery Packaging – with Rebecca of Songbead

Hello everyone! It’s the start of a brand new week – and the first Amuse the Muse post of June. June! I’m a little terrified as I have my first craft fair of 2015 on the 28th of this month – The Art Market in the beautiful town of Holmfirth. Am I prepared? Do I have enough any stock? Do I have oodles of time this month to create in a calm and inspiring environment? Heck, no!! Add to this the fact that this time around, I’m in a different section of the market where rather than using tables, we have to create our own stands from scratch – we are highly encouraged to use our imagination! Eek! It’s all a little nerve-wracking. In the spirit of getting prepared for this event (and thinking that I may not be alone in starting craft fair season this month), I have decided to have a blitz on packaging this month.  Every time I have a new season of fairs, I try and revisit my packaging and ask, how can I improve this? How can I make it more ‘me’? How can I make this more environmentally friendly? 
Who’s with me? Leave your suggestions and ideas in the comments below!
Here are some of the things I found to perhaps breathe new life into your jewellery packaging:
