Aff535 As Paper For Gift Bags

I had a lot of fun experimenting with this complex design when used for gift paper or for straightforward wrapping paper. After some trials, I decided that it was best when made up into gift bags and, for a change, I decided to use my 3D set showing it created as two gift bags rather than one.

Because of the regularity of the pattern and because it follows my Belle Epoque 2 guidelines, the design works well as a gift bag with the regularity of the motifs taking the viewer’s eye across the bag in order to plant it more firmly in the mind. The colours used, of course, reinforce this pattern by making the horizontal areas more noticeable. Incidentally, if you use this pattern the other way round and make the lines vertical it makes the bags look equally good but smaller. This at least was the way it seemed to me and so I use the horizontal pattern which I think is what most people would prefer.

The same comments above would apply to this design when used as wrapping paper for a parcel or present, particularly so if the item being wrapped is square or rectangular.

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.
