10 ways with Hessian / Burlap

Morning Everyone!

It seems that the rustic and natural look is still on trend for weddings this year. Some of our brides like just natural tones, and some like pastel tones mixed with a bit of brown kraft card and lace. 

There's one thing for sure though, you can't have a rustic and natural wedding without some hessian! ( or burlap as our American friends call it!).

Here's our top 10 favourites ....

hessian ribbon is available in my shop here:

Use it for your wedding, use it on wreaths at Christmas, decorate an old tin can, 

What will you decorate with yours?

A little Seaside Inspiration

Hi Everyone

I recently raided my lovely box of Jane Means ribbons, and was instantly inspired by the thought of lazy hazy days by the sea, warm sunshine, sandcastles, walks along the dunes and ice-creams; hence our latest blog being very seaside inspired!

Keeping our theme natural (of course!) we used our brown kraft pillow boxes, and brown kraft matchboxes for our summer inspired gift theme. 

Jane Mean's blue and cream stripe grosgrain ribbon, and the Royal Blue and white grosgrain ribbon matches our natural stationery and accessories  perfectly. 

Royal Blue and White Stripe Grosgrain Ribbon (100M)           

Simply wrap your gift in plain brown kraft wrapping paper, add a length of ribbon and tie a bow to the front. Complete with one of our navy or printed brown kraft tags and you're done. 

We think they make perfect gift for male or females!

Recycled Kraft Gift Wrapping Now Available

Hi Everyone!

Sorry I've not posted for a while - We've been really busy with designing stationery for brides-to-be since January - and haven't stopped! Plus we've been busy working behind the scenes at Razzle Dazzle HQ designing our new recycled kraft gift wrap range. The recycled gift wrap has been designed and created by us to meet the need and demand for recycled and on trend gift wrap. 

We have designed 3 ranges so far, (with more in mind already!) The vintage range, and the black and red patterned range. Today I thought I'd post about the vintage range as follows- 
 The vintage range includes  of wrapping paper designed with vintage bicycles, watches, stags and vintage sheet music. We sell the vintage kraft wrapping paper on our website in kits that include additional tags and twine too! The full range including kraft paper bows, pinwheels and eyeleted tags can be viewed here:

We were recently invited to 'pitch to the retailers' at the Spring Fair at Birmingham NEC with our new gift wrap range. The 5 judges were all retail experts in retail, stationery and the gift wrapping world. After a VERY nervous pitch (that was televised too!), they all gave me some fantastic feedback. Fingers crossed, we will be in retail outlets across the UK with the gift wrapping paper and accessories soon! 

We think the wrapping paper is great for all year round gifts, and is perfect for wrapping men's presents as well! What do you all think?
