Whisker Graphics September Project

Here's the project that I have blogged on the Whisker Graphics Blog today.

My friend Andrea opened up her own business called Home Sweet Creations where she hand pours all natural candles. Right now, she's focused on creating lovely scents and custom candles. She asked me if I could help her come up with some nice packaging for either boutiques or craft fairs. She also offers plain candles that you can decorate yourself for weddings, parties, etc... You can find them on Facebook HERE.

The first part of Andrea's problem was that customers don't really want a label on the candle advertising a brand, she does have her info on the bottom of the candles. To solve this, I simply cut part of a kraft Grid Little Bitty Bag and slipped it under the decoration with her business card in it. It's not so in your face, but a customer can take the card and keep it for further purchases.

Here's what the candle looks like without the business information. This is how a person would display it in their home. Just a few simple steps really takes the value of the candle up and makes this nice enough to sell in a fancy boutique.
