  • With packing paper stacked neatly in place on a work table, center one plate on the paper.

  • Stack a third plate. Grasp remaining two corners, folding two sheets of each corner (one at a time) over the plate.
  • Turn you’re wrapped stacked of plates upside down onto your packing paper.
  • Re-wrap the entire bundles: start with one corner of packing paper and pull two sheets over the bundle, cover bundle with next corner, then the third corner; and finally, the fourth.
  • Seal the bundle with packing tape.
  • Place the bundle of dishware in a medium size box so that the plates are standing on edge.

Use this process on all saucers, bread and butter dishes, and other dishware. When packing smaller dishes you may chose to stack in greater quantity.
