Packaging Evolution

My packaging has been through a number of iterations since the first Tinysaur was shipped. The first was an “Oh no I need packaging” sort of thing, where I haphazardly went to Duane Reade to pick up the least boring paper I could find – which turned out to be construction paper. I ran the […]
