First of all, thank you so much to all of those who left comments on my post yesterday. For those who said it! I hope you all pursue those dreams and check in now and then to let us know how things are going. I’ll have to put up post to give those an opportunity who want to share.
I was working on some packaging yesterday and a quote from the movie Megamind came into my head. There’s a part of the movie when Magamind is battling another villain named Titan. The exchange goes something like this…
Megamind to Titan, “You’re a villain alright, just not a super one.”
Titan, “Oh yeah? What’s the difference?”
(I have 4 & 5 year old boys. Welcome to my world.)
We decided to keep things simple and have each retailer package the samples of milk paint in small bags with stickers. I love the stickers and the bags are a perfect size, but I think I got a little enthusiastic while filling them and put in too much. Operator error, in this case. With the powder popping out of the bags, it doesn’t look cute any more. Once the bags were picked over in the shop, they started looking very sloppy. Not a good presentation, so I pulled the samples from Lucketts to rebag them with less powder.
When I was at the grocery store over the weekend, I found these cute canning jars and purchased them to see how the glitter would work in them. As usual, I got them home and had another idea.
The tops look just right for the stickers and…
…bingo. It was a perfect fit.
I filled the jars with the samples of paint and they looked so cute!
It cuts into my profit a little bit, but it’s worth it to me. Because what’s the difference between sloppy samples and super cute samples?
