  • 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.

                  How thick is that foam Randy? That turned out really nice.

                  I have both types of saw A tilting table Hawk g426 and an Older Excalibur with a tilting head. Unlike Carole for bevel cuts I prefer the tilting head I do larger projects and it is easier for me.
                  Regarding compound cuts they are cut at 90 degrees.

                  If I were in the market for a new...

                  If you have a good saw, and can set the table accurately, you should be good to go. Give a holler if you need help. ๐Ÿ˜

                  Randy, I swapped out the clamps on the Jet for the Pegas clamps as soon as they became available. I found the Jet clamps just too fidgety for my taste.
