Little packages off to see the world


I had so much fun pulling together a bunch of antique silks for a NY magazine editor, can't wait to see what they do with them!

Another package wings its way to a client in San Francisco, she is a collector of my work so I made a special package for her pulling together an antique photograph, a beautiful 1880s ribbon sample (falling apart but still beautiful) and all wrapped with gold thread.


How do you like to wrap gifts for special friends?


Antique mother of pearl buttons,

Antique gold thread,

Antique photographs

Antique French ephemera (ledgers, postcards & notebooks, music sheets),

Antique ribbon & passementerie.


i. I prefer not to use scotch or sellotape and when I can I will always fold the paper,tucking in the sides to enrobe the package. I then use string (or in this example) gold thread to tie the paper and hold it together.

ii. when you tie the string/ribbon or thread make a simple knot then add your button embellishment and tie a bow around it.

Très facile!
