hands up who loves packaging . . .

Greetings all,
Oh goodie goodie, what do you do when your favourite twine supplier does wholesale paper bags too . . . order THE LOT!! 
Stripey bold colours on large paper bags.
 A cute pink bag with white 'frosting' yes please!!
 Tiny paper bags in zig zags, frosting, grid & note paper, gorgeous!!
 Anyone for polka dots??
 Of course, stickers to seal-the-deal.
 My original collection of colourful Divine Twine.
 Now they have new friends . . . in red, oyster, navy, lavender & airmail - red, white & blue stripes!!
 Something about twine en masse that makes my heart sing.
 The air mail collection - stickers, twine & red bags, love it!!
 A combination in black . . .
 or my favourite blues . . .
 pretty pinks for a princess party . . .
 cherry red, say no more.
 Or perhaps something earthy & orange with chick stickers??
 I'm playing around with some ideas & combinations for bags, stickers & twine for sale.
 Really simple & creative gift wrap ideas.
 Oh look at all these beautiful twines mixed up together.
Ah, so this is one way of being productive while having a break from the sewing machine.  I want to do up a bunch of these packs for Shop & my market stall, it's so much fun.  Oh i think i'll have to put together a giveaway of these packaging goodies to share the love of colour & fun . . . perfect for your next party, gift giving & craft supplies.  Love Posie

Wowsers!
This post is a veritable 'kid in a lolly store' experience for a lover of all things stationery - you've got my mind 'a spinning.

Have fun playing with all of that 'amazingness'.

Yummy! I love the bakers twine too and use it to tie our napkins and coasters together.

Oh! Wish, wish, wish I could offer a good home to that airmail twine.

Love, love love bakers twine and have my own secret stash (obsession)... but now have total paper bag envy!! [sigh].
Hope you are enjoying 'playing' with the new supplies Posie.

Why do I feel like eating mixed lollies! Remeber when the milk bar sold them in paper bags and you picked your own? But never in such wonderful bags yummy!

Oh Posie, what a kaleidoscope of beautiful packaging. My head would spin if I had that much loveliness to sort through. Particularly like the birdie seals, very cute :o)
