I always slip a business card into one shoe.
Then I place one shoe in the center of a large sheet of tissue paper.
I wrap the tissue over and around that shoe, then place the second shoe next to it. This keeps a layer of tissue between the shoes and prevents them from rubbing against each other in the package.
Wrap it up all nice and neat (or not so nice and neat, as in this case...)
Drop it in the box.
And add a wad of newspaper.
Seal up your box, slap on a label, and put it out for the mail carrier! That's it.
Of course, there are lots of ways to ship shoes. I used to just throw them in the box with the newspaper, but I suspect those shoes rubbed. I think the tissue is just a nice touch. Maybe someday I'll slip the tissue-wrapped bundle into a plastic bag, but I'm in no hurry to add that unnecessary step and expense.
So yes, I know it took forEVER, but the shoe series is finally done. Eventually, I'd like to get the whole series together into an ebook, but I make no promises on when that will get done. Real life goes on here at the Shoe Palace.
