Day Three

Thing-a-day, February 3, 2011

I've had these gold-leaf papers for years, but didn't know what to do with them. I love how the orange and gold play off of each other, a flash of fancy against the plain newsprint beige paper underneath. The funny thing is that even though the paper is plain, it's soft to the touch -- a surprisingly tactile experience that adds another dimension.

Anywho, I cut a couple up into different sized strips, and with a little twisting and a little tape, made these "fancy" ribbons. I think they'd look perfect on a gift wrapped in kraft paper and tied with a waxed cotton thread or twine. Voila!
