  • Packaging idea???

    Because I have had so many positive comments about the 3D ornaments I have made for myself I decided to cut some for a couple up coming craft fairs. These are the Diane Thomas designs. The designs called for 1 1/2" stock but I reduced them by 1/3 to fit on 1" stock. They are delicate.

    I have no issues getting them to the event. How would you package them for a customer to take away? I do not want them to break.

    How about a picture so we can see what you are dealing with.
    This is an outfit that I buy all of my ornament boxes from. They may have something that fits your needs. We think putting my ornaments in nice boxes made a significant difference in our sales.

          I either use a bit of tissue paper or just a small lunch brown paper bag.

            I agree with Janette. I wrap everything that is fragile in tissue paper I get at the dollar store. The just give them a plastic "T" bag. I save these from my local stores and re-use them, customers appreciate the recycling and a few have said so.

                Thanks for the link Rolf. I usually use a T bag from the supermarket or the clear ones from the veggie department. Recycling is always a plus.

                  At the time I thought "Ah, spit!" (or words like that) and just threw the blade in the garbage. It was the #5 size blade. I suspect it would cost more to have it done than the cost of a new blade. The owners manual is not very helpful, the wording is awkward, having been 'translated' into...

                  The brazing process doesn't look too bad. I have seen the welders built into the industrial bandsaws, so out of curiosity, I looked that up and that process is pretty cool to watch also, though trying that on something this small would probably light the whole thing up....

                  Jo, I did a bit of research on the web, and there are lots of videos of people silver soldering broken blades. In hindsight I remember I had made a jig eons ago to do just that, when I still had a small Craftsman bench top three wheeler....
