NEW HOLIDAY GIFT WRAP IN THE SHOP!

ARC gift wrap

Every year for the holidays I send out a gift to the nearest and dearest to my business.  In the beginning, I baked cookies and pumpkin breads.  Then I sent chocolates.  But in the more recent past, I have been creating prints that were “tinged” with holiday and sending those out.  This year, though, I wanted to change it up a bit once again, and I think sometime in February had the idea of creating gift wrap.  I literally have been working on this since then.  I’d do a word here and there.  Come up with new words.  New styles.  New combinations.  I had pages and pages of calligraphy to sift through a couple months ago when we finally were ready to put it all together.  And when the test prints arrived, I was so thrilled!

I tried out two different versions of the gift wrap, thinking I would like one better and just go with that.  But I couldn’t make a choice.  So I decided to print both and give them together as my gift.  And now I am offering them as a set of six sheets (3 of each version) for sale in my shop.

I love the black and white because it can be graphic and pop-y, or you can personalize it and make it your own because it’s almost like a coloring book!

Anyway, hope you love it as much as I do.  It really was a fun project.
