Blog_GiftWrappingwithInkyCo_2014_09_02_01.jpg Kids wrapping should scream fun! Pick bright colours like our Carnival Polka Dot paper and play with different textures. We love adding little elements to our presents, small fans add a 3D element plus they are so quick and simple to make. Our letterpress paper bows are the perfect embellishment for little girls presents and the touch of gold will make your gift stand out from the rest. To purchase these products click here


Blog_GiftWrappingwithInkyCo_2014_09_02_02.jpg When wrapping presents for guys we like to keep it simple and stick to monochromatic colour palettes. While Indigo is the perfect colour for either gender, it has a certain masculinity that absolutely works for guys especially in the case of our new paper Tool Shed. Our tip is to mix indigo with silver to create contrast between metallic and matte textures. To purchase these products click here


Blog_GiftWrappingwithInkyCo_2014_09_02_03.jpg We can’t move past gold in our office, but too much gold can look overwhelming. For a fantastic feminine wrap try mixing organic elements with striking bold pops of colour and pattern. We’ve combined some of our white on brown kraft papers with pops of hot pink then added a touch of gold. Beautiful wrapping always adds to the present giving experience, so our best tip is don’t be afraid to go all out!
