"The impact of a well wrapped gift is difficult to describe. It’s like an unwritten expression of thoughtfulness, a mark of the giver's creativity and generosity."- Dunne With Style
Awhile back, I discovered Sam at Dunne With Style through her awesome gift swap The Creative Exchange. I participated in the last round of the 2014 swap (and won a prize for my wrapping skills!), and got the worst girl crush ever on Ms. Dunne. She has since become one of my most favorite people. A few months ago--before I revealed how smitten with her I actually was--she asked if I'd like to contribute to this gift wrap idea she had, which was to assemble a group of her favorite wrappers and ask us each to curate a kit of gift wrap embellishments, which she would then release on a monthly basis.
"Let’s face it--a well wrapped gift is a gift in itself and an empty cardboard box would suffice as a gift for me if it's beautifully wrapped. But sometimes where to even begin and having to source all those little ‘bits and pieces’ can leave inspiration and motivation levels low ... Let us gather, collect and even make our favorite things in our favorite colors and leave you not only inspired but ready to create gorgeous looking gifts."
After all of these months of planning, Wrap It is here! Over the next 9 months, you will have a chance to snatch up 9 different kits filled with gorgeous things that will make you want to wrap, wrap, and then wrap some more! Including Sam, the other ladies are amazingly talented, and you can get an idea of what each month's kit will entail from the sneak peek photos we've all submitted. The 9th kit is the special edition Christmas box which is a collaboration by all of us.
All kits are on sale NOW, but are limited to 50 boxes each so even if it doesn't come out until October, once it sells out, it's gone. You can buy a 1, 3, 6, or 9 month subscription--the 9 month subscription includes the Christmas box at a 50% discount! Sam has all of the details on her website, and you can purchase the kits in her online shop. (NOTE: Prices are in Australian dollars, and kits ship from there, also. If you're in the US, this works out to roughly $206 + shipping for the 9 month subscription at the time of this writing.)
These look pretty awesome, right? Everyone's style is so different, but I love each and every one of these peeks!
(NOTE: These images are NOT indicative of the full kit; those will be released on the 1st of the respective month. The sneak peeks contain elements that will be within the boxes and an overall feel for the creative's style.)
