For me, wrapping and presenting a gift is just as important as the gift itself. That and including a card! (I got that from my Mom. If you give her a gift sans card, she’s not opening the gift! Learned that biting lesson one lazy Mother’s Day!)
One of my besties was celebrating a major birthday with a black and white themed masquerade ball!! Decided with another bestie to get her most recent feature in a major industry publication framed as a gift. Now to think about the packaging! **thinking face emoji!**
I was fabric shopping down in the Fashion District when I saw this African themed black and white panel. I initially passed it then double-backed like the Tin Man passing the Cowardly Lion in The Wiz! (The Wiz is my favorite movie and many lessons can be garnered from it! I will be referencing it repeatedly going forward!) EUREKA, I thought! Black and White! And bonus: she can keep the fabric to wear as a head wrap afterward! I scurried my little legs into the shop and asked for one panel and then was met with the dilemma of them having both a white on black AND a black on white motif! It was way too much pressure so I got both! (This is how I will end up on Fabric Hoarders folks. When in doubt, get it all!!! ALLLLLLLL!!) I grabbed my goods and hopped next door to get a few yards of a thick velvety ribbon and scurried my very satisfied self home! It took a little too long to decide on the white on black motif but I can only say that it made my eyes dance the most. Center, fold, fold, wrap, tuck, flip, tie bow and DONE! Heart eyes emoji, no?!?

Love love love. The wrapping paper is essentially a gift too!
