Pretty Stickers and Packaging Supplies

Imagine your guests getting the mail. Something sparkly catches their eye. They pick up that piece of mail to check it out. What they see is that the sparkle is on a gorgeous envelope, your invitation. It puts a smile on their face because it's your turn and they are so beyond happy for you.

The Whimsical Muse was started right here on Etsy on April 1, 2009. I am so thrilled to get to be a little part of many weddings, anniversaries, baby showers, birthdays and other celebrations. I take pride in making a fun and high quality product. I love hearing from customers how they have used things from my shop and their ideas.


"These stickers are definitely worth the price! They are very sparkly, and seem like they will hold up well because they are made on thick paper with extremely sticky adhesive. Cute packaging too!"
from K.M.

"Seller was so awesome! I got the stickers on time and they were perfect!! I am going to be ordering some more very soon! Used them for save the dates and will use them for the wedding invites to keep the theme going! LOVE. LOVE. LOVE! THANK YOU!"
from A.K.

"These are so stinkin' adorable! Thank you so much, they arrived wrapped in a cute package with baker's twine around them, so excited to use them on my wedding thank you cards. Very quick delivery, thanks!"
from A.W.

Want it faster?
* Please contact me in advance if you need to get your order quickly. I want you to be happy but can't promise I will be available to mail your order when you need it if I don't know or if it's a message I receive after you've made your purchase.
* If you pay for Priority or Priority Express that covers the actual shipping but not the amount of time for me to make or process your order (my lead time).
* Delays in shipment can occur if your name &/or address are not the same on both Etsy and PayPal or if there are any issues with your address. I will contact you as soon as possible when I notice any difference but sometimes I'm not able to do that until I'm about to mail your order. Please make sure that you have included your correct address so I can do my part to get your order to you. If I send you a message asking for verification or correction using Etsy's Convo system or via email, the sooner you respond, the sooner I will be able to mail your order.

How long will it take my package to arrive?
* Processing time + shipping time = how long it will take.
* The US Postal Service doesn't guarantee delivery dates for either First Class or Priority. This just means that I can give you a shipping estimate but can't guarantee the date of delivery. I will, however, do everything in my power to get orders out in a timely fashion. Understand, of course, that if there's any kind of disaster or the power goes out, I may be prevented from doing this temporarily. I definitely want you to receive your order as soon as possible.
* The only service where the US Postal Service guarantees a delivery date is with their Priority Express shipping (formerly called Express shipping). When the USPS says they guarantee the delivery date what they mean is that if it doesn't arrive when they say it will refund the postage.

I'm happy to ship to APOs.

For most items, I ship first class through the United States Postal Service (USPS) since their prices are the best given the size and weight of most of the items I sell.

I love shipping internationally! Please note that any duties and/or taxes are your responsibility & are not included in the cost of the item. Any orders not picked up due to the buyer not wanting to pay duties and/or taxes will be refunded when I have received it minus any shipping I have paid (along with any payment I have to make for "return postage" to the US Postal Service). Customs forms are marked "merchandise." It's not legal for me to write "gift" on the customs forms even if it's a present you are purchasing for someone else.
Additional policies and FAQs
I'd love to create a custom order for you. If you have an inkling of an idea or a clear idea, I'd love to chat with you about what I can create for you! I'm happy to create custom orders for scrapbook & other craft classes and retreats (small tags wrapped with baker's twine, small packs of carnival tickets or other items in my shop, as available).

I include the PayPal or Etsy receipt for international orders due to the possibility of review by customs. I don't include a copy of the receipt for orders shipping within the U.S. unless you request one.

Frequently asked questions

It's really glitter? Will it come off in my hands and go everywhere?

It's really glitter! Most glittered things shed. Everywhere. I used to hate glitter because I'd find specks of it for days. This glitter will not come off unless you work hard to scrape it off and then will ruin the sticker. Pretty cool, right?!

Can I use these stickers to seal my wedding invitations?

I suggest making sure that your envelopes are sealed prior to using these envelope seals. With the volume of mail the post office sees every day, there's no guarantee that they will stay sealed if you don't. The envelope seals will stay on when the (paper) envelope is properly sealed. I also recommend requesting that the post office hand cancel the stamps on your invitations
