Shopping Bag Collage

The paper for this package was a gray shopping bag which had a white "label" imprinted with the retailer's logo. I made a small, 3-piece collage on this imprint. I added the recipient's initials. Then I wrapped a piece of gauze ribbon in a spiral around the package. The finished wrap had a stimulating variety of textures, with subdued, tasteful coloring.


 




Folded Foil-Paper Ribbon & Label

Foil paper folds easily. The resulting paper has a delightful embossed feel to it. I made a gold foil holly-paper label, writing the name with paint markers. After I glued it on the red foil wrap, I made a "ribbon" of green foil paper and taped it on the back.


 




Fast Ribbon Wrap

Two kinds of ribbon are wrapped around this gold-foil small package. First I taped a piece of blue ribbon on the back and wound it around many times till it was ready to tape again on the back. Then I did the same quick spiral technique using a piece of gold cord. I finished with a round office-supply sticker, to carry the intitals of the recipient.



Brown Wrap/ Gauze Contrast

This wrap relies on the contrast of rough brown industrial paper with white gauze ribbon. I had saved this ribbon with the bow intact: a wrap artist saves time by conserveing. The label was made with computer-label paper; the image was from our home-made Christmas card.


 

Contrast Cap

This little package gains remarkable visual power from its contrasting papers. A black office-supply dot serves as its label.
