Spoonflower Satin Gift Wrap

Ho boy, I don’t even know where to begin! I’m so in love with this Spoonflower wrapping paper! As you know, a few weeks ago I had this nerdy idea to watch a documentary about deer and then draw a little sketch inspired by what I learned. Then I posted a bit about the process of digitizing my sketch and making it into a repeating pattern. Well, this is the end result!

Though I ultimately wanted to make this print available on fabric, I really wasn’t happy with how the colors translated during the printing process for cotton, even after consulting their color map. I took a risk by not ordering a swatch first and although the fabric version of this print still needs work, the gift wrap version really knocks it outta the park! I’m so pleased!

Since all Spoonflower products are print-on-demand the price isn’t exactly cheap, but I ended up wrapping a decent number of boxes with just one roll. The paper is nice and thick too, so if you’re like my grandma and you like to carefully unwrap and reuse paper, this paper stock with most definitely hold up!

I made sure to make this print non-directional which really helps you get the most for your money. I think it looks great from all angles.

If you plan on ordering any products from Spoonflower in time for the holidays, I highly recommend checking out their Holiday Ordering Deadlines Guide to make sure you’ll get it on time. The printing process kind of takes a while. …but it’s so worth it!

Well thanks for taking a look at my latest project! I hope you enjoyed seeing bits and pieces of the process from initial idea all the way through the finished product. I’ve had a lot of fun sharing it with you πŸ™‚

Don’t worry, a fabric version is what I’m working on next!

If you’ve always wanted to try making your own fabric/paper designs, you should just go for it! I mean why not? It’s so much fun and Spoonflower makes it possible.

p.s. This is not a sponsored post and I was not compensated to promote Spoonflower. I just really honestly love the service they offer! I do, however, get a “designer discount” when I order my own products, and a tiny chunk of change if you order anything from my Spoonflower shop πŸ™‚

  • Wow, this is gorgeous wrapping paper. The colours came through really nicely in the paper. I would love to learn how to make prints and that, but I need to work on my art skills first!

  • Oh that wrapping paper is sooo pretty, Rochelle!! I’m learning to do pattern repeats and the like in my fashion photoshop class, and it is so fun! I can’t wait to start designing my own fabric and the like!

  • I can’t wait for you to figure out the fabric!
