Gift Wrapping 101: In Sundance Style

November 14, 2017

Gift giving is certainly an art. From finding the perfect gifts for everyone on your list, to deciding how to package them, a lot of thought can go into it. Our gift wrap and ribbons shop takes the thinking out of the equation and makes the packaging of gifts the easy part.

Make your gift presentation beautiful with our festive wrapping paper handmade from recycled materials. Eco-friendly and artistic, this colorful, festive wrapping paper, is handmade entirely from recycled cotton materials. Each sheet is printed by hand.

A group of dedicated craftspeople in India transform pieces of excess fabric into stunning, handmade wrapping paper using the art of hand block printing. This technique dates back to the Royal Era and requires skilled artisans to carve intricate designs into wooden blocks using a chisel and hammer. 

The accuracy  of this art is passed down from one generation to another, as a single block can take a few days to carve. The ink color paste is then applied to the finished blocks, and the design is transferred to the paper. The relationship with Sundance provides employment to these skilled craftspeople and encourages the continuation of this beautiful tradition.

Finish off your wrapped gift with any of our sets of ribbons. Our clever 'Good Cheer' holiday ribbons come on nostalgic, reusable wooden spools. Or add a special touch to any gift with our charming 'Jubilee' vintage-style spools of wrapping ribbon. A great unexpected detail in wrapping is to sometimes mix and match the ribbon… get creative with the colors to surprise and delight. Whichever type of ribbon you choose, it will be the perfect accent and finishing touch to any gift.

After your wrapping is complete, we love to add our whimsical printed “Vignette Holiday Cards” for a special artisan touch. Make the package even prettier by topping it with one of our personalized initials ornaments.
