It's a Wrap!

Wrapping paper
You're the best
Birds stamped giftwrap
Love being able to make my own wrapping paper with my hand carved stamps. I think I've loved wrapping presents since I was a teen. I have to thank my mom for that. She always took as much care on the wrapping as she did finding the perfect gift for us growing up.

Love this! I'm absolutely inspired to try out that block and carving tool that I've been afraid of - btw, why do we do this? Makes no sense. You've given me the nudge I need.

Have not tried carving my own stamp yet, but I did bookmark a tutorial on how to do it. Seeing your fabulous wrapping paper makes me want to do it sooner, rather than later!

So beautiful. I wouldn't even think to open it to see what's inside. I'd be happy to just have that gift wrapped parcel displayed as it is.

I thought you'd had some printed. Gorgeous. i have such a soft spot for wrwpping paper. I buy it, but then ai don't want to use it as ai love it so much. I love the simplicity of the black ink on the craft paper. Actually I love stamping on craft paper; there is something about it which is so appealing.

it must be so special to receive a gift wrapped in hand-stamped paper <3

This is lovely. It's so nice to make handmade wrapping paper, it makes a gift so much more personal. The bird stamps are really beautiful, you must use really fine tools to cut out the design, are they lino cutting tools or do you use something else? I've been looking for finer tools to do more delicate work.

What beautiful wrapping paper with all your birds! They look just as good in black and white as they do in color.

Gorgeous!!! You should market this paper like your cards. People buy nice wrapping paper by the sheet. I would do it with the black on brown kraft paper.

With such a wrapping paper, i think no matter the gift i would be happy with anything as long as i can keep the paper... and even frame it properly as it desserves it !

Sonia, last year I went to buy the staedtler mastercarve block but I was told they do not make them anymore. Is this true? I hope not :( If not, do you order them and through what company? I am based out of Ontario, Canada if this helps. Thank you!!

And where can I get some of that wrapping paper? You really should develop a wrapping paper line, if you haven't already... pretty please? = )

I really LOVE your hand carved bird stamps! Especially this hand stamped paper is amazing.
I guess you will find the Tack'n peel (http://www.tsukineko.com/new2.php) useful for the thin open-wings bird.

spectacular wrapping paper! You inspire me to carve some stamps! I too consider present wrapping an art form. Each one must be individual and give a delicious hint as to the wonders wrapped within.
