Packaging

Reduce, reuse, recycle, right?  Sometimes shipped packages contain scrunched up brown paper as stuffing.  Smoothed out and laid flat, the paper seems to have come off of rolls and are perforated.  I've used some as gift wrap as in "brown paper packages tied up with string."  This time I tore them along the perforations, smoothed and folded each piece carefully, then sewed them with my sewing machine.  A dedicated needle just for sewing paper using ages-old thread still on wooden spools further reduced waste, and voilà, new packaging for 2016.  If you buy a bookstring from me at my next show, it will go home with you in one of these.
