The serious gift wrapping season has started – one of the favourite times during the year here at the PaperPhine studio. Working with paper and paper twines makes us happy – so this season makes us really happy as you can imagine. And what wonderful excuse to feast in papers and paper twines, to wrap, coil, wind, glue and to just enjoy simple yet beautiful materials.
With our new classical Selection of Thick Paper Twines in Red, White and Black and a roll of kraft paper it’s to create some stylishly wrapped presents. For the curls just wind the paper twine tightly around a knitting needle or a thin, round pencil – et la voilà, paper twine curls. The curls are also great if you need a little extra to quickly turn a bottle of wine into a fabulous present.
The Thick Paper Twines in Red, White and Black are strong by themselves and easy to curl – but even more so if you braid them. The resulting string will be even stronger and easy to form. It’s also fun to braid these paper twines with kids because the twines are thick enough to be hold in small hands. Recycle your gift wrappings after Christmas and turn them into bracelets – or, since the paper twines are ecologically friendly and biodegradable, reuse them in your garden to keep your tomatoes straight… and watch this blog to see some tomato-pictures with cool bows next summer!
