Family Paper Wraps It Up

Put a bow on it

family paper!

On the twelfth day of Christmas, your true love gave to you: a gift wrapped with Kleenex and Band-Aids.

After finishing an obligatory “Are you f–ing serious?” eye roll, call Stephanie Matthias. The Ok Universe jewelry designer (find her wares at Mohawk General Store) is a whiz in the wrapping department, and she makes house calls.

Before booking your appointment, choose from a range of styles on her website. Eco-crusaders single out recycled brown craft paper and baker’s twine topped with a sprig of fresh rosemary, while boho types can’t resist the handmade rice paper Matthias dip dyes herself.

High on holiday spirit? Opt for metallic glitter paper piled with pom-pom ribbons, streamers, and the odd jingle bell.

Customized orders are also available.

Day 11 is looking up.

To order, email hello.familypaper@gmail.com. Mention DailyCandy to get a special rate ($20 flat fee, $5 per regular-size present). For more information, go to familypaper.tumblr.com.
