Peach, noir wrapping – designskool studio carta collaborative no. 5

This holiday season Justine Hand and I decided to try something a little different. Instead of classic red ribbon, we opted for warm peach and copper with a hint of holiday gold. But for a real twist, we used black paper. Enlivened with fresh greens, our packages feel, not gloomy, but more like a magical winter evening. A silent night. Like those of old in which people huddled around a cozy fire, while outside a forested landscape settled under a blanket of snow and a cloak of night, resplendent with twinkling stars.

  Supplies: for this project we used black craft paper and a assortment of Studio Carta ribbon, including: metallic loose weave ribbonin gold, peach and copper; wide metallic tight weave in black with gold and copper, as well as peach and gold; thin metallic tight weave in peach and gold; as well as thin metallic braided ribbon in gold, rose gold and graphite.

  One creative and practical benefit of black paper: you can write on it with chalk. Here we added stars to our branch gift. You could also add a holiday note.
