Wrapper's Delight...

This year I was really into the old-fashioned 'parcel' look when wrapping my Christmas gifts...

What I used:
~ 100% recycled kraft paper from my local stationary store
~ 'Librett Durables' Biodegradable parcel post twine purchased at Ace Hardware
~ Simple white paper tags (from staples) punched with a decorative paper punch (Martha Stewart Brand)
~ Finished with a sprig of greenery (cut from a bush at my parents house)
~ To keep with the old fashioned theme, I didn't use any gift boxes.  I really love the simplicity!

About Me

My photo
All of my items are hand crafted by me in my Brooklyn, NY studio. I believe in USA hand made, supporting local, and supporting quality. All materials I use are sourced and purchased from vendors in the USA. I truly am inspired so much by nature. Just walk outside and there's millions of things to be inspired by, whether city or country. At different points in my life, or year, or day I can look at the same thing and see it in a completely new way. I realize Im not the first person to be inspired by nature, but I find it amazing how we can all be inspired so uniquely by it. I am a pretty practical person; I feel designs should have form AND function. I USE all of my designs to ensure ease of use, aesthetic appeal, and versatility. If at the end of the day I don't love it, it goes back to the drawing board; or on the back burner; or just tossed on the 'prototype' pile. I also make sure all my designs are items I personally would love to give as gifts.
