Packaging Proto-type

Lots of time practicing my soldering so took time out tonight to work on a proto-type for the packaging. There are a lot of others making soldered pendants so thinking about how to set mine apart from the crowd - beyond the handmade collage. It seems to me it might be nice to have a little handmade folder to store it in so it doesn't get scratched in the jewelry box.
My little folder is sewn from a combination of paper and fabric and ties with a ribbon. The paper is brown kraft paper crumpled until it has a leather-like look. It is sewn to a piece of batik I had in my stash. I have made a few design changes based on the proto-type but that's why we proto-type - no?
