Recipients come with all kinds of different passions and memories. Tuning into these kinds of things is my most favorite way to be creative when wrapping their presents.
The largest present (pictured below) is for a fun-loving Midwestern couple who loves the gift-giving season but doesn’t care for the weather that comes with it. I was able to give a twist on the traditional Christmas colors of red and green by adding candy cane stripes, a look of glitter, and a big gold and red bow topped off with a ornament.
They say big things come in small packages, so the sassy recipient of the boxes covered with leopard paper and thin double ribbon in Christmas colors is going to be very pleased when she opens her gifts!
One particular recipient was described to me as having a “James Bond persona” so of course I busted out my international stamps, with a small envelope attached with international money (no longer being circulated) inside, just in case he needs to make a fast exit.
Finally, one recipient is a devout international traveler with a love for simplicity. Three pieces of out-of-circulation paper money from various countries became part of the wrapping paper with a tag in red and a simple gold string to help make it stand out.
