I package mine in a cellophane bag with a custom cardboard topper. All my items are then wrapped in bubble wrap and then again in patterned/coloured tissue paper, complete with a length of wool and a handmade charm tied in a bow around it. I then ship them in bubble mailers, although I have taken recently to posting them in carboard PiP boxes, because they look a lot nicer/more professional.

I have thought about doing the bubble envelopes, but I'm worried about my items getting crushed. My main product are little glass bottles--I wouldn't want them to arrive crushed into tiny pieces, especially since not all of them can be remade.

Again, I was more worried about the boxes being to small for transport, rather than them being stolen.

but could you put the boxes in the bubble mailers?

Your package could be crushed whether in the box or the envelope right? If the box fits in the mailer, I would do it that way, maybe wrap the box again in bubblewrap and put "fragile" on the envelope... or you could mail your small boxes in the bigger boxes they have at the post office (the ones about the sixe of a book). It's up to you, but in my opinion I wouldn't try to mail a small box.
