Entries in gift wrap (1)



My favorite nine-and-a-half-year-old boy is turning the BIG 1-0 at the end of the month. I ordered this gift last month and my kind friends hand delivered it from Portland when they were visiting us over spring break. I wrapped the two boxes with kraft paper and created a "ribbon" effect using textured bookbinding tape. I love using bookbinding tape as an alternative to ribbon on my packages. I couldn't find the exact bookbinding tape online since I bought it here in Busan, but you could use linen hinging tape or gaffers tape. I finished off the gift with a label I designed using the pretty lettering font Bombshell Pro. (I may or may not be able to spend hours perusing fonts.) Appah has a big surprise in store for J that is sure to make his 10th birthday the best one yet (more details soon)!
