Turns out it's not whats inside that counts! This time, beauty really is skin (or paper) deep. With papers hand crafted in 700 year old Thai traditions, gilded cottons pressed into the finest sheets and laced with golden gauze, you would have to agree. Would you not? This gorgeous blog (with an entire dedication to food, it takes front seat in my favourites) caught my wandering eye with a post about these wrapped up beauties.
Growing up, I've been exposed to 100's of birthdays, weddings, and any excuse for a well wrapped treat to appear with my mum as the go-to of know-hows when it comes to such things. Once her collection of delicate papers, boxes upon boxes of ribbons and finishing touches are pulled out, a creative spark sets alight, steals the show for a good while and voila! We have masterpiece wrapping. I hope my Christmas stocking isn't filled with such beautiful stuff, though. I wouldn't know what to do! How could you rip apart a pretty little thing like that?
