Founder of a boutique gifting studio of the same name, Simone LeBlanc has established herself as not only a go-to source for the perfect, personalized gift for your loved ones, but also an expert on beautiful, creative gift wrap and packaging. This year, to spread even more cheer, LeBlanc is teaching us how to create our own stylish and unique wrapping paper perfect for the holiday season.
Paper & Ink Arts Sumi Color in Red Gold ($14)
The texture of this type of ink is truly luminous and comes in a charming ceramic container.
Blick Premium "Sableine" Synthetic Brushes ($6 and up)
The size you choose will determine the size of the brush strokes. Here, I used a 1/2-inch watercolor brush.
Paper Source Solid Color Wrapping Paper Roll in Black ($6)
I love this pain paper from Paper Source in both black and white.
Global Hemp Polished Hemp Twine ($6)
This hemp twine is great for adding a minimal finish to your gifts. The wax finish makes the twine so easy to work with.
Preserved Cedar Branches ($15)
I always recommend a touch of natural foliage to top off your gift.
The Shopkeeper Store Parveen Hand Forged Scissors ($19)
These are my favorite scissors for holiday wrappings. Hand-forged, cast-brass scissors work like a charm.
