The Primetime Emmys!



A few weeks ago, I read about The Artisan Group on a message board and was very intrigued. They are an exclusive art promotion group that supplies hand crafted items to celebrities at award shows and events like the Golden Globes. I decided to apply and was over the moon that I was accepted!
My first event will be the 63rd annual Primetime Emmy Awards in September! I will have an item in the presenters gift bags and a display piece in the swag suite.
That's right, Jon Hamm and Steve Carell will very likely touch my stuff! ;)

So, now I have to figure out how to package in a way that will stand out. I also have to get my display piece ready as well as 100+ gifts.
I don't want to put a loose photo in everyone's bag, because I'm afraid they will get damaged, so I have been brainstorming packaging ideas and came up with these:

I was thinking I could put my photo in this and maybe a magnet underneath.
I like that these have a window to see my photo w/o opening it and the ribbon is a nice touch.
The box is 6x6x2 and so I might have to build something inside to fit a 5x5 print more perfectly. Of course, a 5.25x5.25x1.5 box would be ideal, but I can't find anything nice enough or that has a window.

I was also thinking about making a photo ring to tie onto the ribbon or a little photo brooch. Of course, I would have to figure out how to make these and then make 100 of them...
The ribbon on the box could also be changed out for another...but I just dont know what yet.

I would LOVE your thoughts on packaging! I need something that stands out and is elegant, but fits my photos.

For the display piece, I am thinking of doing an antique, ornate gold frame with a black velvet oval matte (sort of like the black oval badges I have above).
I also am thinking of doing a name plate on the bottom of the frame.

As for picture, I have a few in mind, but would love your opinion and so I will be posting a poll later today.

If you are an Etsy seller and are interested in participating in the Primetime Emmy Awards, contact The Artisan Group and do it soon because space is limited.
You can also follow them on facebook and twitter.

Have you heard of Heartsy?

It's a sort of a Groupon for Etsy shops. You get amazing deals, usually around 60% off, on handmade items! The deals are limited in time and or quantity, so you have to act fast if you want them. I signed up for a daily email that lets me know the latest deals so I wont miss out.

They also have a VIP service. If you pay a small monthly fee, you get access to even greater deals! Sounds too good to be true, huh?!
