16 Savvy Etsy Packaging Ideas For A Memorable Customer Experience
Etsy Packaging Ideas | Get creative with paper garlands
Tara used a garland to wrap around a white wrapped box and used a clothes peg to attach a little tag. You could attach a tag or a mini business card with a unique coupon code for returning custom!
If orders are being placed through your small business that are gifts, a genius idea would be to offer a custom discount code to the purchaser, along with their receipt. Then you can have a different code on Business Cards for gift recipients.
Make use of patterned paper and adhesive labels/stickers!
You could easily write a small thank you on that label. Makes all the difference!
Always write a thank you & Embrace Lace!
Here we have the wonderful Anna who wrapped a kraft gift box with fabric ribbon, lace and sequin trim in layers. Add something like this to every order because it shows that you took extra care. It’s always a great idea to include a little information about how they can get back in touch in case a problem.
Etsy Packaging Ideas|Create little visual stimuli
You can do so by using contrasting ribbon or paper (as ribbon) to decorate Etsy packaging. If you do this it SHOWS that you care about your Etsy products and your customers.
It may just be twine around a box but it’s the details that count. Paying attention to detail really goes a long way in the eyes of your customers.
Make use of your products if possible
Use a simple material or yarn (like the previous example) to use to create lovely decor and embellishments.
This image was an advertisement for some fabric, the Etsy seller cuts it into a strip and used it instead of twine to package up a Kraft gift box. Debee Ramos was the QUEEN of this. Her store is no longer available but her product images live on to serve as inspiration.
Etsy Packaging Ideas | Embrace Doilies

Using a newspaper is a great eco wrapping paper idea, especially if they’re in different languages.
Use embellishments for your packages
Remember – It might be a little tricky to send something like this.
I remember my first package from Tara Anderson and received in a gift bag tied with red yarn and the smallest, cutest red pom-poms I had ever seen.
So trying something on a smaller scale could be worth considering.
You can mix up your materials!
Use fabric, paper, yarn and twines to create flowers or ribbons to embellish.
Tamaar, who owns the beautiful shop Nest Pretty Things, uses Moo cards as little gift tags on her jewellery packaging. This Etsy Seller used photographs of vintage sheets she owns to create the gorgeous little tags you see in the image above.
Embrace flat things!
For posting; you can embellish plenty with pattern paper and fabrics or pictures of patterns! Use tape to adhere cut out shapes or confetti for some textured ribbon.
This little wrapping tip is so simple!! By using several strands of different coloured baker’s twine; tying them in a standard knot and trimming the ends (so they’re all even) Fancy Flamingo designs did a fantastic job making a tassel pom-pom!
Keep It Simple!
A beautiful kraft gift box; tied up using twine and topped with a faux flower is a beautiful example.
Tara Anderson had this beautiful package for sale in her shop Citron Faire at Christmas, I bought the contents and received the lovely packaging!
I adore the tag; a ticket, layered to paper leaves and the contents typed on a vintage typewriter.
It was an ephemera kit so the packaging was also included and a great way to present your Etsy products.
Keep it flat and straightforward!
I love getting great patterned notecards with packages with a handwritten note inside, I use them as backgrounds for photos in frames or in my journals, or just on my inspiration wall!
Finally, stitching a fabric label with her logo on it.
Very effective huh?
It’s easier to keep parcel tags flat with embellishments as it’s easy to get carried away on a large package. That way, you can still keep it simple.
Pretty Things Inside Packaging Tape is terribly quaint and perfect for packaging boxes or envelopes for the mail!
Use Patterned Scrapbook Paper For Tags
Sugar and Cloth wrapped a box with kraft paper, a beautifully patterned gift tag and topped using silk flowers.
Holly Becker of Decor8 held a class in Anthropologie in Berlin back in 2011, and this image of the white gift box, adorned with lots of washi tape, a glitter tag and big fabric bow was one of the highlights.
If you think ‘more is more‘, embrace it
Depending on your type of product/store, if it’s a friend or a first-time customer, you can go crazy!
