Sample Packaging

Any suggestions on how to package some 15g samples I want to send out? Not to hip to little plastic baggies...

How many are you sending out? Are you willing to purchase something online?

You could use mini tins like adagio's samples, or a mini cardboard pouch... I can't find an example of what I am thinking of... but i KNOW i've seen them. Let's see if I can put my inter-naut skillzz to work.

Okay, something like this... but made from recycled cardboard or whatever maybe?

The one ounce size from TeaSource are nice to have on hand for exchanging tea and you don't have to commit to a bulk amount of them:

Upton is also a good choice - you can get small green foil bags or opt for small round tins:

Thanks Victoria and bsteele; you can read my mind!! Have some of the bags and tins on the way from Upton and was also looking for an origami solution (unsuccessfully).

Is this what you are looking for Origami-wise?

geeber and oliverco, those are really nice, but I'm looking for less box-ish, more envelope-ish which can be made w/one square of origami paper. I've found a few designs, but none that I'm really excited about (or that meet my anal retentive criteria).
