Hello fellow craftsters!  I am so glad to finally give up lurking and start asking questions!!! 

I wanted to ask how everyone ships their handbags?  I really wanted to know about packaging sturdy handbags that stands up on its own(with heavy interfacing)?  I wanted to minimize the wrinkling.  Do you stuff it with tissue paper and use a box that will not crush it? Your suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I stuff it with tissue paper (from the gift wrap section) and then put it in a sturdy box. I don't ship in an envelope, because it's way too floppy!

You could always do what they do in the store which is to stuff it with that newprint stuff.  I don't know about where you live, but our newpaper sells the end of rolls of the newsprint (w/out the words on it) for $1.  THat would be an inexpensive way to go about it.  I also like the tissue paper idea.

Thanks so much you guys for the tips........I just want to make sure that the purse won't get all crushed and that will take away from the purse itself. 

Do any of you have a set rate when it comes to shipping cost?  Or do you get each person's zip code and calculate it each time?  I am curious to know if anyone has found something that works for them. Thanks.

Another good idea when packing, if you don't have a ton of handy paper around is bubble wrap or putting a good sized, but smaller than the bag, box inside the bag and stuffing around it.
