Since I opened the shop, I've just been hanging the pieces from my three-hook Hope decoration.
Inspiration came in the new way I've been packaging my orders.
So, I took these supplies
|scrap cardboard, miscellaneous papers, ornament hooks, drying rack|
|Watercolors and water soluble pastels|
as well as some hole punches, scissors, gel medium, and paint brushes.
I cut to cardboard to the size needed
Glued the paper to the cardboard with gel medium and trimmed off the excess
Decorated the paper with either water soluable pastels or watercolors (though any decoration would work)
Punched holes and/or cut slits to hold the jewelry before using an ornament hook to hang the jewelry
And what, praytell, did I hang them on? Well, drying racks that I hung on the wall.
These new displays not only make it easier to get to the jewelry, but really add a spark of color to this area of my craft room.
Having the jewelry already on the cardboard displays also makes shipping out the items much easier since this step is already DONE.Yay for organization!!
So what do you think? How would you have done this? Shoot. . .how ARE you organizing your jewelry for sale? I'm pretty happy with this method so far, but wonder if there's some way to improve upon it. Please share!
While I've got your attention, let me mention the necklace I listed yesterday.
|Rainbow Chain Necklace|
It's getting late, so let me share some links quickly!
- Embroidered ornament
- Christmas cannon
- Fake gift boxes
- I really wish I could crochet so I could make these ornament/cozie things. The directions look fairly easy from the LITTLE bit of crocheting (chain stitch) I've done.
- These 3D paper ornaments are a pretty neat way to recycle some old paper. I can see using magazine/catalog pages, book pages, scrap paper, etc to make some neat and inexpensive ornaments.
