As a compulsive crafter and a business woman, I enjoy the small details of running my shop, and one of the things that I keep thinking about is the packaging of my product.
It is very important to me that my customers open their BCharmer mail and feel that they are loved and respected. This means that I want my packaging to be clean, pretty, and have a "put together" feel. But at the same time, I don't want to waste resources or be excessive. Recently, I found a product that I feel helps me to accomplish this balance between environmental responsibility, artisan support, and lovely presentation. It's called Washi Masking Tape, and my favorite seller of this fabulous stuff is Patty Yuan from The Tinted Mint.
Washi Masking tapes are made from Japanese rice paper and an acrylic adhesive. They come in a rainbow of yummy colors and adhere very well to a variety of substrates. I have used them on tissue paper and have been able to re-position them without damaging the tissue, so it's extremely forgiving.
Patty is an ethical businesswoman who also tries to keep her business footprint small. As well, she donates a portion of her proceeds to a variety of environmental and social causes, which makes me all that much more happy to support her.
I am so relieved to know that I can support my Magpie tendencies while also keeping it simple and pretty. Thank-You, Tinted Mint!
