Aff476 Gift Paper Pattern

Gift bags or at least the paper to make gift bags and to wrap up presents into gift parcels is a big market and one that I have looked at although I have not as yet made any real effort to design and create suitable patterns.

However, comments by other people and a moment’s thought has shown me that my designs and patterns could be well suited to this use and this pattern looks as though it would make very good gift paper. The design uses mid-century motifs and strong colouring designed so that the main red motif stands out and catches the eye.

The background is canary yellow, a common mid-century colour and from the British Standard range of colours as are the two reds, poppy red and Post Office red. I am currently trying to create a suitable 3D set to allow me to show this as wrapping paper and I hope to have a further image to show you later today.

One further nice touch to this pattern and one that I think will apply to many gift paper designs is that they seem to fit the criteria for being Belle Epoque 2 designs.

If you wish, you can also see larger versions of this and, of course, my other designs and patterns for interiors on my Flickr page, a link to which is here.
