Mothers day weekend I had two events at my favorite SF store; Arch! I sold various letterpress ephemera and cat toys that I've been making lately. I was available to help folks wrap last minute mothers day gifts and share wrapping tips and inspiration.
A week before my event I had my kid in the candy store moment when I went on a mini-shopping spree in Arch to find fun things to wrap with. I wanted to give people inspiration for wrapping with unique materials. I love a pretty wrapping paper and ribbon but I love to find alternatives to traditional wrapping elements or find humorous ways to make a present special. Arch used my wraps as inspiration to gather more fun wrapping elements from the store into a display.
We had a crafting table for folks to make gift tags and play with one of my favorite materials; washi tape. Because I love working with patterns I also brought some vintage wall paper scraps.
