Wrapping A Potted Plant

Image 2

Plants are great go-to gifts for anyone from the new home owner to the office co-worker. Not only are plants nice to look at, but they also help promote wellness by improving air quality and can have a calming and stress-relieving effect. Instead of giving a plant in its plain old pot, dress it up with some wrapping paper and ribbon! Read on to see how we got both of these succulents party ready!

Switched At Birth

The MTV Movie & TV Awards took place in LA this past Sunday, stars from the big and small screens stepped out in glamorous outfits that looked a little familiar!

Emma

Emma Watson was giving off major Warrior Princess vibes in this Kitx dress with its metallic sequins and sheer sleeve! We think our Optic Two Tone Kraft Tote, Silver Foil Stamp Tissue, and Metallic Disc-O Tie-Ons could be Emma’s guests as she celebrates winning the first ever Best Actor In A Movie Award.

TARAJI

We loved Taraj P Henson in Hidden Figures and love her even more in this metallic number by Emilio Pucci that matches perfectly with our Glit Poly Glitter Bottle Bag and Mixed Metals Tissue. We topped it off with our Girly Grosgrain Curly to match her pop of pink lipstick!

Allison

Christmas came early this year for Girls actress, Allison Williams, who rocked this festive dress by Galia Lahav. To recreate this ensemble our Holiday Glitz Gift Bag gets paired with our Gold Glitter Dot Tissue and on top is our Gold Metallic Star Bow for some extra shine!

Looks like metallics are here to stay and we could not be more thrilled!

Sometimes, gifts look better unwrapped. Blasphemy coming from the Gift Wrap Company Studio, I know! But before you condemn me, hear me out.  Click through to see how I deconstructed a Giant Gift Sack to wrap this awesome present.

DIY Tissue Paper Fringe Banner

FInal

When packing a gift bag, I always like to buy a coordinating tissue paper, but once the gift is wrapped I find myself with some leftover sheets that have nowhere to go! I could always save them for next time, but let’s be real here, I will most likely forget and grab another pack of tissue for the next gift. Instead of tossing them in the trash I decided to make a whimsical banner that would really bring the party! Read on to see how I created it!

National Crayon Day

IMG_6744

Happy National Crayon Day! The smell of waxy Crayola crayons always takes me back to my childhood when I used to spend hours coloring and drawing. Crayons inspire children everywhere to show off their own creativity in a fun way. Sadly, today Crayola has announced the retirement of Dandelion from their iconic 24 pack of crayons. We don’t know what color will be replacing it, but we had a few ideas of colors that could! Our question for the day was “If you were the newest color in the crayon box, what color would you be?”

If you were the newest crayon in the Crayola box what color would you be?

 

Real Life Gifting: Gracie’s Birthday Donation

Gracie With Donation Blog

This month we had a VERY special birthday here at the studio! Gracie, our studio mascot turned 2! We knew that we wanted to celebrate in a special way, but what do you do for the dog who has everything? Gracie is a playful rescue dog who loves people. She brings so much love and joy to our workday that we honored her birthday by sending some love and joy to the dogat the local Save A Dog shelter who are still waiting for their forever homes!

Gracies

Together we were able to raise enough money to purchase some items on the shelters wish list including dog beds, toys, leash and towels! Of course we wanted to get creative with the gift presentation and decided to display the items as a gift basket using a plastic storage tote. Once we had all of the items perfectly displayed in the tote we covered the top with clear cello and wrapped coordinating blue and lime wire ribbon around to attach the card! We folded and stacked all of the towels on top of each other to fit into our Watercolor Wishes Jumbo Gift Bag.

Cupcake 2

We kicked off the birthday celebration with some dog friendly cupcakes and a new squeaky toy. Gracie had so much fun on her birthday and we are so excited to see those wagging tails at Save A Dog when we drop the donation off this weekend! S
