Wrappin' Up

In order to stay on theme (Frontier) and maximize use of the 1,346 branches of cotton I now own, this year's Christmas presents are going out wrapped in black or brown packing paper and twine with, of course, touches of that truly versatile plant. 


  1. You must share where you purchased the black wrapping paper. I had the most difficult time locating solid colored paper this year.

    How very chic...I agree, that black wrapping paper is beautiful, looks as though it has some purple undertones? Where on earth did you find it?

  3. It's just some black stuff from Kate's Paperie last year. They generally have lots of solid colors. But in general - it's shockingly hard to find in non-day glo shades!
