Whoever said that it’s the thought that counts clearly has never met an artist. As someone who creates beauty or thought-provoking works, it is easy to want to do more than slap a bow on the top of a store-bought box. Here is some inspiration to get you wrapping with flair:
1. Ditch the paper. Instead of using the store-bought wrapping paper, get creative. Use richly colored fabric to decorate your holiday gifts as Han Feng, a costume designer does. Find pieces of cloth that remind you of the person for whom you bought the gift to make it personalized.
2. Grab a newspaper. We’re not talking about wrapping a gift in the comics section like when you were a child. Find exotic or old newspapers to give your gift an international or nostalgic feel. Then tape it all together with some brightly colored tape to give it a modern twist.
3. Recycle. Have you kept invitations, announcements, and postcards throughout the year? Consider using them to create a wrap that no one has seen before. Not only will it be daringly different, it will help the environment by reusing those materials.
Wrapping presents doesn’t need to be a drag. Release your creativity and create a holiday that all of your friends and family will remember. Here at the Fine Art Studio of Rotblatt-Amrany we pride ourselves on creating new art every day and hope you can find a way to be extra creative this holiday season.
