Earlier this year, a wonderful and completely unexpected opportunity came my way from Stampington & Co which resulted in me being published in Willow & Sage.
Willow & Sage is a magazine I haven’t mentioned before because it specialises in handmade bath and beauty products, something I would love to dabble in one of those days but at the moment, it is an area I haven’t dipped into and therefore, have never submitted to this title. That’s one of the reasons that the opportunity was such a bolt out of the blue for me.
My article in the Summer issue is all about packaging. With bath products in mind, with ingredients of honey or lavender, I set about creating a set with peat pots which would contain bath bombs and a soap bar wrap, all of which would be tucked inside a kraft bag.
I am sure you understand that I do not feel comfortable sharing instructions, what with them being published in Willow and Sage but I will share some photos.
A bath bomb would nestle comfortably in the peat pot, amongst the scrunched raffia.Throughout, the colour palette is that of lavender and the natural colours of burlap, jute and the peat pots.A little stamped tag. You can probably guess what the tag is made from!A soap bar wrap, with the same supplies as those on the peat pots other than switching the style of the burlap flower.
The gift bag. Apologies for the strange angle of the photograph and it also does not show that the gift bag is a decent size, after all it had to house all of the above.Thank you to Natalie Way and Christen Hammons for this wonderful opportunity and to Catherine Moore from Character Constructions and Suzanne Melvin from Oxford Impressions, whose stamps I used.
Thank you so much to you, for taking the time to visit this post.
