Holiday gift wrapping inspiration ... our products featured in a few of our favourite magazines!

Our products have been featured in a number of holiday magazines recently and I wanted to share some of them with you today. We are always so happy to see Canadian magazines featuring Canadian stores and Canadian designers, artists and bloggers.  I personally like to know when I am reading about something in a Canadian magazine that I can either go out and buy it locally or order online and with the knowledge that I will not have to pay additional costs for shipping like duty and brokerage fees.  

So here's the publications that I have on my coffee table right now ... 


Style at Home magazine

Our ribbons, wrapping paper and boxes were featured in a number of articles ...

I also adored this home by Toronto designer Jessica Kelly. Her pink and grey gift wrapping was stunning ...
B.C. business owner, Cheryl Krescy, set up an afternoon tea party in her cafe using natural elements like burlap bags, lace ribbon, kraft paper and gift tags, stamps and handmade paper flowers. The article is very inspiring and although the products were not from us, we carry most of the items featured if you are thinking of doing some of these diy projects ...

Our ribbons made the front cover! I didn't see the source for the paper straw but of course you already know that we carry paper straws in lots of colours (including red!).

Samantha Pynn used our boxes and ribbons in this "Design Expert" article. Love the jewel toned ribbons combined with beautiful white boxes (no wrapping paper!) ... so simple and elegant.
 There is an awesome tutorial on how to tie a bow inside. I could not find a credit for the ribbon but I believe that it is ours. And there is a fabulous section called the "12 Days of Decorating" that I loved ... they featured lots of ideas for the holidays by designers and bloggers.
