Pretty Print Keeper from Ruby Star Wrapping by Melody Miller and Allison Tannery
One of our favorite gifts? Signed prints by independent artists. I’ve only recently become aware of the vast, amazing resource in beautiful prints on websites like etsy and from other sources like homegrown craft fairs, local art shows, and even flea markets and thrift stores. And when you’re ready to give one of these prints as a gift? Leave it in the tube, but don’t forget to make it pretty. Use decorative paper, wallpaper, or fabric to spiff it up. Save tube mailers you might receive, or pick up a few the next time you are at a post office or shipping store. They are sturdy, simple to decorate, and are an excellent way to store artwork.
