Default How to wrap-pack and ship metal headband with Rosettes, Fabric-Felt Flower?

I search in this forum but couldn't find any answers for my questions.
How do you wrap, pack and ship metal headband which has Rosettes, Felt Flowers or Fabric Flowers (organza flowers) on it? The rosettes or felt-fabric flowers measure about 3 inches accross and 3-5 inches long. Do you wrap it in organza bag, tissue paper, cello bag or a small box (what kind of box?) and put it in bubble mail?

I'm planning to start using metal headbands instead of FOE, but wonder on how to ship them safely. I offer shipping through US Post Office by First Class Mail and First Class International Mail at my Etsy shop. Any advice please? Thank you in advance

Where can I get the cardboxes? do you ship using priority mail?
Thank you.

Anyone else please?

I would use the priority boxes from the p.o. or I order a lot of stuff online and I always save my boxes and use those.

I have lots of small priority mail boxes. So...I can use this box, wrapped it and ship it via First Class Mail? which is much cheaper instead of paying $4.95 for the cost of priority mail small flat rate box?

No, the post office will know you used their boxes and will not deliver. Try to find some on ULine or Papermart.

No, still ship it priority, just charge for that much shipping. I think save some small boxes if they just order one headband and mail first class and if they order a few or more send it in the priority box.

I buy small boxes on ebay in bulk. They are 6x4x4 and they are about $.40 each for 100. Perfect size, not too expensive. You can add the extra $.40 into your shipping price on etsy to pay for your supplies.

Thank you so much for helping, I will save small boxes and also order online from Ebay. One order will ship through First Class using small box and more orders will go through priority mail (rate-box). Thank you everyone
