The new Little Branch x Emma Blomfield collection of luxury stationery is inspired by the lifestyle of Interior Stylist, Emma Blomfield and the illustrations of her first interior design book, HOME. Each design is personal to Emma, giving a glimpse into her creative soul.
The beautiful collection features a range of cards, gift tags, wrapping paper, art prints and writing paper sets. The selection of watercolour designs are now available for you to shop online. Made from sustainable paper stock, each design is handcrafted, designed and made in Australia for you to enjoy.
Choose a hard surface, like a table top to wrap your gift. Wrapping on carpet will cause wrinkles and it’s a little bit more difficult.
Choose a colour theme to ensure your wrapping paper, ribbon and card all compliment each other. If you’ve chosen a neutral wrapping paper then you could work with a more textured twine or metallic ribbon. If you’ve chosen a bright and vibrant wrapping paper, then you may choose to stick with a block colour ribbon and a simple card design.
Cut the right size piece of paper. This sounds simple but even a pro can rush and cut the wrong size piece of paper. Centre your gift first and then check that it’s the right size before cutting. If you need an extra guide you can mark your cutting point with a pencil on the inside of the paper.
When folding the ends of the wrapping paper on either side of the present, create creases at the corner seams to make folding them down easier. If you struggle with folding, try watching this easy tutorial – watch now.
Now it’s the fun part! Wrap your twine or ribbon around the gift to measure it before cutting. Then tie the bow and voila! If you want to add a special touch, try heading into the garden and adding some fresh flowers or greenery that match your colour theme.
