As Seen In: This Old House

While browsing through the latest issue of This Old House, we spotted some design elements that we recognized!IMG_1035-This Old House did a feature on Kelly Rinzema and a bedroom makeover she posted on her blog, The Lily Pad Cottage. In the write up, Kelly mentioned that she used gift bags as framed art work on her son’s wall. Those gift bags just happened to be created here in The Gift Wrap Company Studio for one of our partners, World Market!

An extra special birthday gift!

Last night during a local news segment, we noticed one of our wrap designs was used when a little girl unwrapped a very special birthday present. The present turned out to be her father who surprised her and secretly came home from a 9 month deployment in Korea. We’re so glad to see one of our products being used in such a touching event!

Below are a few stills from the segment, click here to watch the video.

Switched at birth?

Eyelet Romance Swithed at birth

The arrival of Labor Day marks the unofficial end of Summer, so in it’s honor I wanted to take one last look at a classic trend from this season. Eyelets! Doesn’t this adorable eyelet wallet and our eyelet romance wrap go hand-in-hand? I think we’ve found the perfect gift and gift wrap pairing!

Vintage Gift Wrap

All Wrapped Up

Check out this fab find from boingboing. ‘All Wrapped Up!’ is a collection of gift wrap from the 1960’s. Here at the studio, we’re beginning our 2015 Christmas line and things like this show us just how much our industry has grown over the years. Pretty grooovy dude!

Switched at birth?

Doilies from TGWC Switched at birth

I’m loving the way this Sheinside dress and our Doilies wrap are vibin’! The cut out/overlay style is still very much on trend and this combo makes me wish summer could last forever… a girl can dream, right?!

Switched at Birth?

Switched At Birth ziggin it

Motif Wines has some pretty packaging and we couldn’t help but notice it vibes well with our Ziggin It Gift Wrap! Quick, somebody set up a wine tasting and we’ll use the Gift Wrap as a tablecloth to compliment the bottles. Any excuse for a party, right?

Switched at Birth- Raceway Ribbon

This color combo is vibrant yet simple and sophisticated. This summer make a bold statement with our Raceway Printed Grosgrain Ribbon.  One-shoulder dress found somewhere I forgot to remember (sorry!) and Julie Bag from Zady.
