When one of St. Louis’s largest companies calls and asks you to create a massive pile of gifts for them to use as a photo backdrop for their holiday party… you say YES! These boxes will be stacked on a 3 foot table making them 9 feet tall – perfect for towering behind guests who arrive. The clients asked for matte paper so that photo flashes didn’t create a glare; plus, no major patterns so as not to clash with outfits. I used butcher paper to accommodate these wishes!
Commerce Bank needed 12 gifts wrapped in a high-quality, simple look. I included the Commerce Bank logo to add an extra special touch.
I wrapped these gifts for a friend who wanted something special for her boyfriend. Aren’t they pretty!?
There’s nothing more fun that creating a theme. Obsessed with the brown paper in this one!
This is a small sampling of a 22 piece Christmas order that I got from a colleague of mine. I thought this blue, white, and silver wrapping was perfect for Christmas, winter, or Hanukkah! Plus, fun for kids–who were the recipients of the majority of these gifts.
This was an order of 18 Christmas gifts — the client just wanted the basics, ribbons and bows, nothing too flashy. But they still looked sharp because they had a solid theme!
Red and gold is my favorite color combination during Christmas time. I bought a big bunch of holly berries and then I just clip a sprig off whenever I need it!
You don’t always need a bow! Some string and a flat piece of decor makes for a great modern look!
Christmas is coming and I think this year’s gift wrapping theme (for my own family, at least) will be brown paper and string. I love the look and string is so much cheaper than ribbon!
