Packaging with cinnamon sticks

Anyone who has ever lovingly purchased an Anjou item will know precisely what I am talking about.  The importance of packaging, to me, is key to a well-received product.  While I’m carefully tying a ribbon or struggling to fold in the corners of layers upon layers of pastel tissue paper or constructing flower pins with leftover fabric, it always brings to mind that scene from ‘Love Actually’ where Mr. Bean is making it really difficult for Alan Rickman to make a quick exit with his perfectly executed gift wrapping.  Who wouldn’t want the pervasively spicy-sweet aroma of cinnamon to exhale as you lift up the corner of a painstakingly wrapped package.  It’s the epic book cover on a Harlequin novel.  You don’t know what’s it’s about, but I’ll be damned if you don’t want to crack open a book with a dragon-slaying maiden in a chastity belt.  And judging a book by its cover has never been so pretty!  Here’s a sample of a recent package I sent out  <3

  1. So pretty! I’ve never wrapped something with cinnamon sticks before but I’d like to try now.
