Aff537 As Wrapping Paper

Because this is a Belle Epoque 2 design, it makes excellent wrapping paper when used at most scales because of the close placement of the motifs and the fast and very noticeable repeat. In other words, it is an instant hit with the eyes as soon as you see it which is why, of course, it would be difficult to use this design for wallpaper or, to an extent, for other use such as soft furnishing.

I have tried to tidy up my set to make the image will look a little nicer and to give a better impression of how this design would look were it created in wrapping paper.

This pattern is also suitable for making into gift bags but, since I have shown the last two wrapping paper patterns as a gift bags, I’ve decided to leave this as a parcel.

Aff521 As Gift Bag Paper

As I anticipated, this particular design makes an excellent paper which can be used for wrapping articles as a gift or alternatively fashioning the paper into a bag in order to hold gifts or presents.

I am well used to creating mockups for walls and soft furnishings but wrapping paper is a somewhat new development and I spent a little time fashioning sets for gift bags, parcels and presents. Of all of the images that I produced this one was, I thought, the one that showed the design off to its best advantage and looked realistic.

The pattern is bold, dazzling to the eye and colourful. It also embodies the kind of rules that I had set for myself for Belle Epoque 2 and it is so nice to see the pattern in use.
