This Wrap Story is part of a mini-series, documenting every present I’ve wrapped since the launch of The Gifted Blog. Click here for the whole series!
It started with the paper. G. and I went to the 75th anniversary show at SFMOMA earlier this year. The last room had a stack of posters by Felix Gonzalez-Torres, arranged in similar fashion as this. (You can get a clearer look at the poster in the second image here.) I took one, with future gift wrapping on the brain.
this tutorial and finally tackled the big Crate & Barrel box staring me down from the corner of the living room.
photo corners idea to affix it to the back of the box.
It was thrilling to try something new for this gift - new colors, new technique, new materials. I love working with fabric, but I've never used it like this for gift wrapping! I worried because this isn't S. and D.'s aesthetic, but I realized that they would "get it". They know that I love doing this and that God is doing something here.
What do you think?
Stay tuned for more anniversary week treats...there's a Wednesday giveaway around the corner!
