Packaging + Mailing with Kraft Paper

Kraft paper can be used in a variety of ways to package and mail gifts, products and more.

Both practical and pretty, using brown paper and kraft packaging is environmentally conscious and visually appealing.

Items can be placed in kraft gift boxes, on a bed of shredded kraft paper to keep them safe. This offers a beautiful way to package products and gifts, in addition to the practical benefits.

From there, the gift box can be placed inside a cardboard box like the white one below for further decorative packaging and shipping.

More shredded brown paper can be placed inside the cardboard box to make a pretty bed for the gift box to settle into. Additional gift items can be added to top off the package.
