Shipping Ornaments in Oatmeal Containers

Save those oatmeal containers because they make great shipping boxes!
They are also very secure!

I recently sold a pink Christmas Ornament on eBay supporting Central Florida Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure

and, while I searched for a safe box to ship it in, it was easy for me to cut down a tall oatmeal box! I trimmed off the top half and the plastic lid securly fit in place I was able to "Ship Green!"

Using a black marker I wrote " on the package in a few area's as well as mark it as fragile and Glass:
Very happy to report I received an email from my customer saying that the ornament arrived in MINT condition and she loved the Green Shipping!

WOOHOO Green Shipping Rocks!!!

If you sell small items like thimbles, you can use film canisters or prescription bottles to ship them.
