Default How do you ship your headbands?

Hi everyone!
Just started my small business ..
I make felt flowers headbands and clips..and I wonder how do you ship your products also .. your bows and flower headbands??
do you use boxes or bubbled envelopes?
I put my headband on a postcard then in cello bag then in 6 by 6 by 4 inches shipping box..
Sometimes I may ship only one cheap item for 3 or 4 dollars in such a box feeling that there is something else I could use and be much more economic .. any ideas?? I much appreciate your advice
Thanks!

6x6x4 is the best option I think.

You can purchase at uline.com:

Their shipping is expensive though. if you live near one of their warehouses, you can pick up the order to save on shipping.

Thanks

I use that size box from Uline, too.

I've been struggling a bit trying to find a way to package headbands in a way that's pleasing to the eye but also keeps them safe. I use a lot of feathers in my creations, and I always worry about the delicate feathers being smooshed. Initially, I wrapped them carefully in a lovely tissue paper and then wrapped the outside with pretty ribbon and a tag, then put that in a cello bag and placed it inside the mailing box. But I've found that the tissue does cause some "smooshing" of the feathers. Without the cello bag and tissue, though, I worry about water damage if the mailman leaves the package on the customer's porch during inclement weather. So...yeah...I'm really struggling with how to mail and package these too! Would love to hear some more ideas.
