This is for a friend who loves the color green. In wrapping gifts, I always take into account the receiver’s favorite color to make sure I come up with something that s/he will surely like.
Wrapper: Plain green paper.
Border: Recycled greenish ribbon (it’s not clear from the pic though) with dark brown lining. It’s actually a ribbon from The Face Shop with the said shop’s name printed on it so I placed it facedown (or should I say print-down) on my gift.
Accent background: Plain green paper (a sheet from a memo pad). Its vertical sides were then singed with a mosquito coil to create shape and achieve that brownish color.
Main accent: The yellow, orange and purple flowers are cut out from a gift wrapper and carefully arranged to look like a bouquet. The brown “flower wrapper” with gold lining is a recycled Ferrero Rocher chocolate wrapper folded into a triangle. The bouquet of flowers is then held together by a piece of recycled slim pink ribbon with silver stitching.
