Well Hello There

Welcome to Beyond The Grommets: the wonders, wanders and what-nots from The Gift Wrap Company Design Studio. Catchy huh?! We are a diverse group of eight cheeky young ladies who design all the products found in The Gift Wrap Company’s range (lovingly referred to here on out as TGWC, I hope you can appreciate the short and sweet!).

Referred around the company as “The Boston Studio” in actuality we are not in Boston proper but rather about 40 miles west in a town called Hudson. Day in and day out we work together (and quite well I happily report) to keep the product line fresh, be innovative and most importantly to create fun designs you all will love to see adorning our products.

So please check in and enjoy our ramblings while we attempt to inspire, educate and maybe even enlighten about the little bits and bites that happen
beyond the grommets.


Real Life Gifting: Petite Square Bags

 Petite 4

Perfectly sized for jewelry, gift cards, candies and more! Petite square gift bags are the ideal wrapping solution for small tokens of love and appreciation. One of our designers recently shared her gifting experience with us…Read on to see how Amanda used a petite square to wrap a special gift!

In just a few short weeks by bestfriend, Steph, will be completing her masters program.
I cannot wait to watch her walk across the stage and receive her diploma so we can celebrate! She has been working so hard to achieve her dreams these past few years, and I wanted to find her the perfect gift. I got her a beautiful bangle designed by Kate Spade New York, rose gold and featuring an adorable idiom hidden on the underside, “Stop And Smell The Roses”. I think this is a lovely bangle that’s always there to remind her that even though it is easy to get caught up in the business of our day to day, it is always important to slow down and enjoy the little things in life.

I chose the Lumiere Petite Square Bag, I adore it’s multi colored polk dots and metallic shine. I accented the bag with red tissue paper to match Stephs fiery personality, and the ‘Cause You Rock Tassel that comes in our Tassels & Tokens Gift Tags.

I cannot wait to give Steph this beautifully wrapped gift and celebration the completion of her program!

As the Creative Coordinator at The Gift Wrap Company, I spend my days planning our trade shows, styling theme shots for our catalogs and a number of oddball things in between. I love experimenting with new ways to use paper and ribbon because the possibilities are endless! By the end of a good day I am usually covered in glitter and have tape stuck somewhere to my body.
