peach, noir wrapping – designskool studio carta collaborative no. 5

December 10, 2015

Designskool, Studio Carta Collaborative, wrapping, supplies_edited-2 Supplies: for this project we used black craft paper and a assortment of Studio Carta ribbon, including: metallic loose weave ribbon in gold, peach and copper; wide metallic tight weave in black with gold and copper, as well as peach and gold; thin metallic tight weave in peach and gold; and thin metallic braided ribbon in gold, rose gold and graphite.

This holiday season Angela and I decided to try something a little different. Instead of classic red ribbon, we opted for warm peach and copper with a hint of holiday gold. But for a real twist, we used black paper. Enlivened with fresh greens, our packages feel, not gloomy, but more like a magical winter evening. A silent night. Like those of old in which people huddled around a cozy fire, while outside a cloak of night, resplendent with stars, settled over the forested landscape.
