Weekly Wrap #1 : Pretty Purples

Weekly Wrap

I’m so excited to introduce the new Weekly Wrap series! This is something that I’ve wanted to do, literally, for years, and I’m very happy to finally be adding it to the site. So, what is the Weekly Wrap?

The Weekly Wrap is all about inspirational gift wrapping and packaging. Every Friday, I’ll feature a different gift wrapping or packaging idea that can serve as inspiration for your own gift wrapping or packaging projects. I’m looking for original projects, projects that are standouts — sophisticated, modern, handmade, out of the ordinary. Do you have a gift wrapping project that you’re particularly proud of, or have you spotted amazing gift wrap or packaging in your web travels? If so, then I’d love to hear from you!

Weekly Wrap, Carolyne Roehm

First up, Carolyne Roehm. Carolyne is the queen of gift wrapping, and I know that you’ll be seeing more from her in the coming weeks and months on the Weekly Wrap because I’m a big fan. If I received a gift wrapped by her, I’d have an extremely difficult time bringing myself to tear into the gorgeousness.

Berry tones are very hot right now, and I love the use of the magenta and purple Christmas ornaments, not to mention the oh so clever luggage tag, as accents. And, of course, the the paper and bow are perfect, too!
