hand printed gift wrap

by Grace Bonney

Few things can beat handmade gift-wrapping. It may not have the perfect lines or super-crisp edges that come with machine-made paper, but it’s overflowing with the sort of love and character that can only come from something that’s handmade. This hand-screenprinted wrapping paper from Darbie at Field Guide Design on Etsy caught my eye this weekend, and I thought it would be perfect for anyone looking for a slightly less expected wrapping look this year. Bold, colorful and made from beautiful wood blocks, Darbie’s designs will bring all the color you need for gift-wrapping with the added beauty of Indian woodblock patterns. You can pick up sheets of her paper right here ($10 for 2 sheets). Happy wrapping! xo, grace
