Graphic Designer, artist, and writer.

My whole story with graphic design started when I was around 11-12. At that time I used to visit certain forums and was active in them. Stumbling upon the various sections I came across the artists' forum where members used to show their creativity. I was immediately fascinated by the artwork and graphic designs that one can do by learning the basics of art and designing. Since then I found myself learning more and more as the years passed. However, I never studied graphic design heavily and am not professional in this field yet. My gallery reflects my love for art and graphic design that started as a hobby and ended up being my profession now.

As for Crafts, I used to love crafting when I was little. Whether it was painting with sand, decorating my own boxes, and creating my own paper house. I remember how I stayed in my room for hours creating some crafts or printing a coloring page from the internet. My love for art and crafts just grew which enabled me to open up my own online store.

Hand and home printed gift wrapping paper

02 by artistaq8

I used my inkjet printer to create a quick and easy gift wrapping paper. Instead of printing on a plain white paper I chose Ivory Parchment Paper. Its texture and ivory color gives a better result than the normal white paper. I was looking for something different and that's why I went with this.

Before printing, I took a moment to look at my own patterns. It'd been two since I started creating patterns and sold them so I have a huge library with many patterns to choose from. However, there is a specific style and color I was looking for.

Choosing the suitable patterns, I printed them and cut off the white borders (if there is any). Then, I brought my small box and wrapped it with the printed A4 paper. Since it was a small box I didn't need bigger paper. When I was done, I decorated with a white paper (I just cut a stripe from the white paper and wrapped it around the wrapping paper) and a metallic blue and gold ribbon.

And this is the way to wrap a small gift box quickly at home!
