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.
