Yes, we know we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, it’s what’s inside that counts, and so on and so forth.
But like the body of Arnold with a Denzel face, a beautifully presented gift never hurt anybody.
In today’s video, we asked Geren Ford designer/founder Geren Lockhart to show us a few of her favorite wrapping techniques from her Los Angeles home. Lockhart, who’s been renowned by friends for her pretty packages for years, showed us two methods: one for a soft package (above) and the other for a boxed gift.
While we were in the zone, a few DailyCandy editors came up with nine neat ways to wrap a present in brown craft paper. (Faux bois stamps? Felt acorns? Check.)
Appearance is all that matters.
