Hello, I am launching my new crafty business at the end of this month, and the stress is definitely starting to get to me.

Since I am starting off with doing a rather large Expo, packaging seems to be pretty important.  I want to look professional, or at least well put together.  But, I have still not figured out a way to easily, quickly and cheaply package this one product.  They are miniature crayon sculptures, about 1"x1"x0.5" (length, width, depth), and are being given away in sets of three.  Although they are not very delicate, they do have little pieces that I fear could break off.  Any sort of boxes are just too expensive, and I'm not sure if they will look right in a plastic baggy.  Any ideas, suggestions, are greatly appreciated!!

Here is a link to a photo of two of them:

If there are breakable pieces, I would care less about the packaging and more about protection. Bubble wrap and wrapped in brown paper with a logo sticker would do it for me.

Those are so cute! I agree with CraftyChef, all you really need is something to protect them, bubble wrap or some tissue paper and then something to keep that on.

When in doubt, use more glue!

Thanks, I already have a rather large roll of brown packing paper, so I think I will probably wrap them in something soft, then wrap them in paper.  It will give me an excuse to use the millions of cute stickers I have, or any of the cute ribbons and ties I have.  ^_^
