With a love of stripes and florals (Jane used to be a florist), the collection has been designed with these elements in mind.

Jane has been a designer herself for over 12 years and put the collection together , with help from graphic designer Leona Baldwin at Fox and Lark

Our new designs

The 4 designs are unique as they are cleverly designed so you can get up to 6 different looks with a single sheet, using Jane’s clever techniques.

The papers are reversible and printed in the UK on high quality paper. We cannot wait to start using them on our Gift Wrapping Courses

Jane says “I’m delighted to be launching this first ever collection. For years I have been thinking about designing my own gift wrap but felt the market was already flooded with Gift Wrap.

It was only when I had that lightbulb moment when I realised I’d designed something unique, that I decided the time was right”

She adds “The papers have been designed to compliment the ribbon collections and are suitable for occasions including birthday, anniversaries and weddings. For the last six months there have been many tweaks and amendments in her design studio, and now the team are busy with photoshoots and styling projects. It’s a very exciting time”

The collection will be available exclusively through Create and Craft from Tuesday 14th March, and will be available to wholesale customers at the end of March

An insight into our new Singapore Gift Wrapping Courses

We recently launched our first creative Singapore gift wrapping courses at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel with press in attendance. The creative classes were scheduled to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of Singapore Independence, known as SG50.
